Since I became licensed in June, I have gotten at least 5 of these types of emails and one phone call from Japan. They usually go to my junk file, but it is funny to open one once in a while a read it. Like dah people, are you serious?

Congratualtions on becoming a member of the "Cake Spam Club" (that is what DH calls them)

icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif I love how the words CREDIT CARD are nice and big like oooooh ahhhhh - they've got a credit card! In the end they want you to fork over $$ - and the baker/business ENDS UP USING THEIR OWN $$ to ship or send or cash something in the end for these types...

IMHO You should always have $100's coming IN from a transaction not 100's going out!
