I just received a letter that is to good to be true. It is from a company in another country that says they are moving their business to the US and they service Airlines but they also service sports stadiums and they want to know if I can furnish them with individually wrapped cookies at 2 millions units per year!!!!!
Has anyone else gotten this? It just doesn't sound right to me. There just seems to be a screw loose somewhere. I don't think I'll trust this one.
What do you guys think?

Um....WOW!!!! icon_eek.gif

Was it a postal letter or an email? Is there company letterhead? Can you look up the company?

If it's a scam, it's a new one I've not heard of.

If it is for real, and you're set up for that level of production, then CONGRATS!!!! party.gif

I can't imagine anything but a true factory being able to produce 166,667 cookies per month (5556 cookies/day) AND individually package them.....The start-up costs would be enormous......

What financial arrangements are they proposing? Does it involve you accepting a credit card, bank transfer, or money order? How did they find you, in particular??? Have you Googled the company? Do they give you any references?

I can google the company. I guess they are for real. I had not looked them up before. It just sounded to good to be true. It's called Retail in Motion located in Dublin Ireland. I guess I eat crow on this one!
There is no way that I can meet that kind of production, sure wish I could. Oh well I guess my chance to be a cookie millionaire just went out the window.

or found your contact info. icon_confused.gificon_confused.gificon_confused.gif

I bet there are plenty of commercial bakeries that can do this- I cannot imagine a real offer to someone not set up for real output like that!

Tread carefully please.....
