Happy Married Life email? Never heard of it, though I am still a newbie to cake world & some things I still don't know about .. well lots I don't know about.
I'm with txsteph - what r u guys talking about?
It's a cake scam that rolls around every few months.
Ohhhh I understand it now. Thanks Mac
Could u explain it to me Steph - I'm still lost?
you get an email, with misspelled words galore, from some one who wants you to make their wedding cake. They will send you a check, of course it is way too much, you then wire them back the difference. they say they will have a courier service pick up the cake and they want it to say something along the lines of happy married life. of course the check is bogus and if you were dumb enough to wire the change to them, you are out the money as there is no way to trace it.
Someone contacts you thru email and asks to order a strawberry (or some other flavor) cake for a wedding whenever. They ask for 5 or 6 tiers with "Happy Married Life" on it. They want a quote and will give you a cc number and tell you to charge $3000.00 (or some other outrageous figure).
They tell you to keep what you charge for the cake and a courier or driver will pick up the cake to take to gosh, knows where. You are to give the driver the remaining balance in cash.
Alas, the cc is stolen. SCAM!!!
Oh - thanks for the info. WOW - I hope not very many people have fallen for that.
I can only dream of the day I will be accorded such an honour!
