She texted me first and said she found my number off of a book. I do sell MK but havent really marketed for a couple of years so I kind of had my doubts. I did give her my email but was suspicous. Where is she getting the MK consultant list from?

Same as others, I received a text from someone claiming to be Sharon Horton. I actually received the same text twice, once at 9:46am, and again at 1:59pm.
The text said "she" found my phone number from a look book (cosmetics catalog) and requested that I text back with my email address so they could provide more details on what they would like to order. The phone number on caller ID is 720-378-7393. That is a Longmont, CO phone number.
At the time it didn't seem strange because I live a few hours away, so I provided my marykay.com email address.
Today I received the email below. When I saw the mailing zip code is Reston, VA it seemed strange. I have clients all over the country, but if my phone number was on the look book, it would have to be a current customer and I don't know of any in that area.
I called my director and asked if there were any known scams like this and she said YES a lot of them. The company doesn't know where these scammers are getting our consultant phone numbers, but it's definitely a problem. I went to the corporate website and it referred me to email spam@uce.gov for fraud alert responses, which I did.

As the others spoke of - deaf woman contacts me via text about a $200 MK order. I know it is not right, because I DO NOT put my cell phone number on my books. I unfortunately was not fast enough on my feet to create a new email address or give her my MK address.

She contacted me and wanted a large MaryKay order. She claimed her "boss" sent a check that was more than the intended amount. She Asked if I would deposit and send the difference using Money Gram on the same day as I got the check. That's when the red flags went up... checks take a while to clear. Her wording was unusual, and she wanted me to take pity on her for being in the hospital. She only wanted txt messages, she didn't give me a clear address from the beginning, and had 4 different addresses: Houston Texas, Detroit Michigan, Los Angelos California, and Buffalo New York.

Texted me regarding placing an order for the most expensive thing Mary Kay makes, Time-Wise Volu-firm set $199. Told me that they wanted my email address. I gave them my mary Kay email address. Responded by telling me they wanted my personal address. Told them to tell me what the hell they wanted, responded with the Volu-Firm set. Looked up price, told them price with tax and shipping. Didn't hear back after telling me they would PayPal me the money. Then 2 weeks later, received a text saying they had been ill and that her boss would send me the money. Texted me the next day and said the boss had sent me $300 more than the cost, and wanted me to wire them $300 back. Oh and that she trusted me. I just laughed. I blocked her number and never ordered the product for her (them).
Her address is:
597 SANFORD RD NICHOLSON, GA, 30565
