In the past couple of months I have recieved 2 calls on my personal cell phone from people stating they "were on-line looking at cakes, found one they liked, choose a bakery and my name came up". First caller seemed a little flaky and since I have never advertised on-line (I only do this on the side for family, friends, and co-workers) and am not licensed I grew very concerned. Like I said, caller was a little flaky, so they could not tell me the website they were on. Several co-workers and myself tried for over a week to find me on-line anyway we could possibly think of. Needless to say, I turned down the cake. I eventually forgot about it but today I received another call from someone else. This lady was very nice and intelligent and walked me through the website she was on, told me every step she took, the other bakeries in the area that came up, and the disclaimer about the cakes on the page. This website was which is linked to
I never ordered anything from their website since I am not a licensed business with tax id #'s so I was very disturbed to find my personal cell phone and home address on this website... Mind you I have a very trusty security system but I just wanted to warn others that you need to make sure you are not on this website if you do not wish to be. I called the company and had them remove me. They insisted I was there because I had placed an order. I countered that I had not, I could not because I am not an official business and the sets I wanted to buy from them I actually bought off of e-bay. They assured me that I would be removed immediately but it could take up to a week for the website to clear me as a bakery in a certain area...
Free advertising if I were licensed, but I am not and I certainly don't want my home address and personal cell phone # out there for the world to see.
Just wanted to warn others,

Wow, thanks for the warning! A while ago I wanted to set up an account and got rejected. But after hearing your story I wanted to double check. I'm not there!

Interesting! I checked (as I do order from them) and sure enough I am there, home addy and all. Which does explain a call I got a long time ago asking for cake #such and such... I'm like WHAT?? I do order my fondant from them but no decorating kits so I couldn't figure out how this lady thought I had this kit. Now I know icon_smile.gif

Wow, thats not good! I order from them all the time and I checked and I am not on there. Keep up after them if your name is not removed. They have no right to have it listed without your consent.

You guys should be aware of another thread from not too long ago about cake decorating scams. The thread is called "Scam?" and it is in the Cake Decorating Business Forum, in case my link doesn't work. Be very careful when receiving phone calls about cake orders when you don't know the people that are calling or they sound suspicious.

I checked it out, and the only "bakeries" listed are for Walmart and some local grocery stores. Whew!

I had the same problem ( I am licensed) I kept getting random phone calls for kids birthday cakes and they obviously had not been on my site, I dont make sheet cakes and I dont put plastic toys on top, evantually one of the calls told me the website she had found me on. DecoPac took me of very quickly.

I checked and it is down as of this moment. It might come back. Check this out too. It is on their site when you sign up for an account:

"The information provided by you will be used only by DecoPac to determine if you qualify to become a customer of DecoPac, Inc. This provided information is confidential and will not be sold or shared to any entities for commercial or research purposes."

To me, putting your info up on a site without your knowing violates this.

OMG! I am on the I ever even knew it. I have been dealing with decopac for about 3 years. I don't buy there plastic decorations but I was getting my fondant from them. I think they shold ask if we want listed. I am going to have to look into this.

Thanks for the discovery.
