|+3 New Scentsy Consultants Targets of Email Scam |
When the consultant agrees to place the order once funds are received, Jennifer indicates that a check is in the mail. After a day or two Jennifer emails the consultant to say that she has just discovered her uncle wrote the check for too much money. She explains that a second check was supposed to be written to a cousin to pay for party supplies but the uncle made a mistake and combined the two amounts. Jennifer asks the consultant to either cash the check or deposit it when received and then agree to forward the extra money to someone else. She asks the consultant to hurry to that the products will be delivered in time for the party.
An envelope arrives USPS with a false postage-paid mailing label from the fictitious uncle in Pennsylvania, so the consultant is forced to pay the postal service $5.75 to receive the envelope. Inside the envelope is a fake check made out to the consultant. The check is issued from a company in Virginia and drawn on a bank in Connecticut. The signature on the check is not legible. It is printed from a computer rather than physically signed or stamped. The cost of the Scentsy order is less than $300. The fake check is made out for $950.
The check bounces, of course, but the consultant has already forwarded several hundreds dollars to the fictitious cousin, as well as placed an order for the Scentsy products.

Get back to me with the total cost and sale's tax that I will pay for the products, also with the name and mailing address you want your payment mailed to so I can instruct the Sponsor to prepare your payment and your phone number so I can reach out to you in case of any emergency. Please get back to me as soon as possible so I can continue with the order. I would instruct the project sponsor to send you the payment in cashier check. Our crew would pick up the items themselves and you can also have it shipped to our mailing address below(add the shipping charges to the total cost) but i only want you to have the funds in advance so you can get the ordered product ready. Please send the quotations and details needed to send your payment asap.

Thank you and stay blessed.

Laura Daniels contacted me saying she needed some scentsy products for a family party. The total was $310. When asked where she was located she even had a legitimate address listed close to my town.

Emma contacted me saying she'd like to place an order for a family party and that she got my email off of Scentsy website. She had an order totaled for $254.81 and said that her 'uncle' would be paying for it via a check in the mail. I thought something was fishy about this and contacted my director and she assured me that I did the right thing in questioning it and not sending products. I do believe that Emma is who another person referred to as "Jennifer" on here. The M.O is exactly the same.
