I remember reading that same letter in another scam alert. Very strange the things people do.

WTH. Peforming? Are they a circus?

Sheesh. What'll they think of next.

When would 10 cake decorators travel together????
The only way that would happen would be if they were traveling with a tour group specifically designed for them...in which case the tour agency would have ALREADY made all the arrangements for classes, visits, etc.

hahaha when I got that email, I also thought of some sort of cirdesole troupe that juggles cake while piping on them or something?

I guess these scammers must really think we are stupid?
