|+8 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.

This person was inquiring about purchasing some Scentsy products, from time I do get inquires from customers from outside my normal client base, this was pretty legit, check that was sent looked very good, have a background in sales operations for over 20 years I knew better, once I had notified the customer that my bank had placed a 10-day hold due to the chances are the check would be returned I never heard back. Please be careful!!

Please, get back to me as soon as possible. Thank You ************************************************************************************************************************************************* How have you been? I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I have been encountering some medical issues that have been becoming more prevalent for me, but I am on the mend.. I want to let you know that the payment delivered to you yesterday. An issue came. and I have just been informed the check was accidentally issued out for more than the order. Its for $950 instead of $317.52 we agreed. I understand the additional amount on the check would have been issued out separately to my cousin to arrange for the other party items. I'm truly sorry for any inconvenience this may have cause you. You will have to understand since the check was actually made out by my uncle. I would hate for things to get any further delayed with the event approaching. So what I am asking is that you forward on the extra$$ as soon as you have received and cashed the check. I'm really, really sorry for any inconvenience. It should be fine. I will just email the name and the address info where to return back the remaining money once the check clears. Please, get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you! *************************************************************************************************************************************************How is your day going Alex? Thank you for emailing. I will need to know as soon as the order is placed and when to expect delivery. I also was wondering if you have a Walmart store near you to send out the remaining money? I'm sorry. But it would have to be sent out to my cousin so we can have her purchase the gifts and the other items that we need for the party. I'm sure you understand this is such a family thing. With the crunch time and all, i'm sure you understand the need to get everything taken care asap. Please, put the order in my name ( Vennesa Jones) Address; 3529 Gavota Ave, San Jose, CA 95124 Please advise if you have a Walmart store near you and would you be able to get done for us today sometime?

Eilene Lucas contacted me with a large Scentsy Order, totaling $151.82. Check from "uncle" received for $1921.97 which included what she said to be her flight costs. Two travel agents given with contact info. Western Union money order sent to second "Monica Thompson" in Lewisville TX 75077 for $1678.13. Today, original check bounced. Product was sent to an address not connected with Eilene Lucas, and woman who received it is mailing product back to me. However, I'm now out $1921.97. I'm totally pissed at being scammed.

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.
