Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
Received a text on my unpublished cell phone, "Hello my name is Cheryl M Brown from OR, i will like to make you my new marykay rep I got your contact from marykay that you a rep and can help me.. I need to order some Marykay product for my daughters wedding ASAP from you as my former rep is fighting cancer and at the hospital as of now get back to me at email@example.com so I can send the list of product I like to order..."
I thought this was legit at first since my directors name is actually Merry Kay and a girl from our group is battling cancer... I responded with an email and received this reply within 5 minutes:

I figured this was a phishing scam because she didn\'t even order any actual makeup for the upcoming wedding... Hopefully no one actually tries to cash any checks from people like this! Please post if you have any updates or similar experiences.
