Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My second month of being an Avon rep, just trying to make a few extra bucks since I lost my job.  I get this wonderful "hit" from my Avon website from a potential new customer.  I respond which is then followed by an email that reads as follows....

Do let me know the total cost plust the necessary tax I am to pay on it.  I would need to know the total of all the products I requested and also the name and address you want the payment sent to and also a phone number I can reach you on.  After you send me this information I would instruct my sponsors to send you the payment which would be in form of money orders or certified check which you can cash instantly at your bank.  Please get back to me as soon as possible so I can continue with the purchase, I would be in around soon so I would pick up the items in person but I want you to have the funds in advance, so send me the quotations and details needed to send you payment.  Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day.  thanks for your time Cheers.

The same thing happened to me

AUTHOR: MsKERIBaby - (United States of America)

I have gotten two emails from these people. Luckily instead of placing the order, I checked to see if it was legit. It wasn't of course. I see that they even used a different address in your emails. I'm very glad you didnt fall vitim to this scam.
