I received an email from an online friend who is a demonstrator of Stampin up. While Stampin is a ligit site there have been scammers who have sent emails to the demonstrators. The following is a warning to anyone who works for ligit sites selling things. Below is the email I received from my friend..

Thought I would show you this =
I sell for a company called Stampin Up and lately alot of demonstrators have received emails wanting to purchase
items with a cashiers check -
One lady posted this on the Demonstrator side of Stampin Up asking if it could be a scam
Alot of people responded yes it is so at least people are aware of what to look for
I told her that as soon as you see car accident or out of the country its a scam !!!!

Below is the email that was sent to the demonstrator mentioned above.

I mark in red just a few of the warning signs that this is a scam. Chances are "Kim" will change her mind once the check has been deposited and will want the person to send the money back via westernunion or moneygram. Remember never send money to anyone who you have meet online.

Thank you for posting this. If Stampin Up is getting these, I am sure that other Direct Sales Reps are also seeing them.

Infact, I forgot to post on my original.
one of the CTMH reps got her email and it was for all CM products and mentioned Creative Meories dealership,

They are getting creative in their wordings too.....
We have a list of names but all the addresses are at either intersectiosns, or vacant land.

loo71, thank you for posting your information. It might be a good idea if you could post some of the emails. This will help to alert others on what to look for. Also it might be a good idea to post the scammers name just incase someone googles them.

I did a blog post about this here ... ll-online/

It would be nice if we could get this information into some bigger publications . . . getting the info into the work at home mom boards would be one way to start.

My mother (a SU demonstrator also) just received an email similar to this. She realized it sounded like a scam, so I did a search and found this thread. I am pasting the letter she got below in case anyone else searches this out. The wording sounds so strange, and there are many spelling errors, which tips to a scam! :) She says she is giving her full name and address for contact info, but then it never was included.
