I am a Las Vegas Event Coordinator. I received an e-mail from Jessica Farrell at
Speedracingisfun.farrell@yahoo.com

she wanted to plan her wedding with a budget of about $25,000. She would be moving with her fiancee to Las Vegas on Dec 18th where he would be working for Coca Cola. They were to be married on January 24th. I have been working on her proposal for a month and making arrangements. We require a 50% deposit which she wanted to pay by cashier's check. RED FLAG. I have been suspicious all along about her so i googled her name and it took me right to this website.

I have been suspicious since the get go. She requested information via my company's website originally and my boss gave me the lead. She gave very detailed personal information about her and her fiancee. She asked a lot of personal questions about me as well. She tries to be very chatty and friendly.

When she e-mailed about the cashier's check I called our bank and discussed wiring funds. I then e-mailed Jessica Farrell (who supposedly resides in Haiti) and told her we cannot accept a cashiers check but she could wire U.S. funds to our bank account or pay by credit card.

BIG SURPRISE I haven't heard from her in a week.

A girl named Jessica Marie Farrell scammed me out of $100 a couple of years ago though Craigslist. I don't think she realized that when I'm done wrong that I typically take a bite and hang on like a pit bull. :twisted:

I registered her name as a domain name, scanned the web for information about her and also posted about how she was able to get real tracking numbers for packages that she never really shipped (thanks to the United States Postal Service). I then assembled all of this information into a website.

Check it out, if you wish. The URL is http://www.JessicaMarieFarrell.com

Thanks,

Britt
