Why is it that the scammers always want a strawberry cake? In the past two days I've received the happy married life scam email and another one for a cake to be shipped to Toronto in a refrigerated truck. They always want strawberry cake, I just think it's interesting they'd choose that all the time.

Maybe strawberry cake is a popular dessert in Nigeria. icon_wink.gif

Cake Scammers? Didn't know they exsisted. How sad that people would take advantage of such a wonderful thing. I have had several orders (real orders) for strawberry cake, which I am not to fond of personally, but never a false order. I hope you knew it was a scam up front & did not get screwd over.

Off subject. I work in the aftermarket automotive industry (say that 3 times fast icon_lol.gif ) & I have more than once gotten (very obvious) bogus orders. What I find interesting is that they always use that phone assist service where a relay operator talks to you, supposedly because the person on the other phone is deaf or something? Then they want my work email so they can communicate directly with me, no problem there, and then they always request an order of 10 or more of the exact same part & they want it shipped out of state. I have (thankfully) never fallen prey to these people. I always tell them that I must FIRST have a faxed, legible, photo copy of the credit card the intend to use, front & back, and a legible copy of their US drivers license, AND they have to hand write a letter on the same page authorizing me to use the card for the specific purchase without either the person or the card being present. This kills them every time.

Interesting, I think I got one last year that was strawberry, too. Funny thing is, I have never, I don't think, gotten a REAL order for strawberry cake! Filling, but not cake.
