This is not the first time an email like this has appeared in my inbox. Believe me, I can understand how the need for skin care products can constitute an emergency (right, hmm…) but, I must tell you that I choose my customers rather than letting them choose me, for exactly this reason…
From Amanda Godowns to me:
I need you to place a swift Order for me and also want to be your new Customer and also take you as my Future Rep. since my MK Rep. is no longer active. My Boss would mail you a Cashiers Check for the total amount of the Mary Kay Order, the shipping fee and the tax. Since I don’t operate CREDIT CARD and my only method of payment is by sending you a payable Cashiers CHECK which will be made payable to your name after you give me your info. and the payment would be mailed to your address. Mind you, the Check MUST arrive and cashed before placing my Order. Here is the product I will want you to place for me:
TimeWise Repair Volu-Firm Set x 2 $410.00
Please confirm to me if the products all hand-packed ?? Kindly email me back with your Full Name (Payee Name), Address or your P.O. Box Address and Cell Phone Number for immediate payment and will my Order be shipped to me directly from the Company?? My address will be enclosed on the check while my zip code is 33884.
Awaiting your swift response. Thanks…
My dear Amanda, since you are in such a hurry I would suggest that you go back to the Mary Kay website where you got my address and get a representative in your own area. You can meet with her and skip all that cashiers check rigamarole – just give her the cash and get your product immediately. And we really don’t have to involve your Boss (like, why would you do that?) at all. Oh, and I think someone’s hands pack every Mary Kay order, so yes hers would be hand packed too. Your friend, Shirley

I received this scam today, but now saying she is in Newport News.
What “BOSS” do you know of who does not have at least ONE credit card???? I wish my boss would be so generous to pay for my skincare products 😅
What type of business is it??? Call Girl Service? 🤔😂😅
I received the same email today. 5/01/2016
