Received an email referral from Arbonne for Julie Freeman and just her email address. . . I sent a quick generic email introducing myself and this is the reply I received (see below).

The poor grammar, the need to have a phone number to text to and the other inconsistencies in information sent my hackles up so I started using Google to check on Arbonne email scams and found similar incidents. I did a reverse address look-up and no Julie Freeman lives at the address below.
