I received a comment recently asking about my blog where I mentioned a scam artist. So here is the basic story.
I sell Avon - just started again as I once sold it when my youngest was born (32 years ago). Went back to it because I do love it and use it completely - their creams, makeup - cant find a better foot cream anywhere....anyway, back to the story.
I received an email from someone who sent me a $145 order for Avon. She wanted me to place the order, she would send me a company check (said they dont deal with credit cards?) and have someone come to my house to pick up the items.
Why? Apparently these people (and there were many) send a check for more than the amount of the bill and ask you to wire back the balance - duh
Or sometimes they ask you to send a check (bank info) - duh
Plus, I dont like any strangers coming to my house. So I replied back that I do not accept checks and that she should order online. NEVER HEARD FROM HER AGAIN!
Be careful out there everyone.......lots of bad guys (and girls) out there.
