    As always, contact your Director and corp.Keep them in the loop of information.

  • I have been having the same issue.  Someone wanting to order, saying they have mailed a check and/or cashiers check.  I haven't received anything yet, and it has been quite some time.

  • I have replied to the tex message that I am aware it is a scam.  They never respond after that.

  • Ignore the contacts. It will stop. Contact your director or MK legal.  Unfortunately with every business person, there are scams, and my unit seems to receive these 2-3 times a year (usually when one unit member gets a scam, then 5-6 more have too). Usually they tease you with text, but request you to contact them only by email. They may state that their past consultant is ill and they don't want to bother her. Or....they are coming into town and need a lot of product for gift baskets. My rule to my unit......never, never reply at all. Listen to that inner voice, if it sounds too good to be true, then it usually is....If you receive anything by mail, take it to the US Post Office and file a report. It was a good idea for you to reach out, reach up for advice. Put this aside and go find your next customer!

  • My cell, phone will allow me to flag phone numbers as spam, so if they send me a text or try to call I will not receive it.  At one point I had a lady try to blow my phone up with texts (10 in less then 1 hour at 2 am, big time red flag) from back east. I flagged her number as spam and have not heard from her again.

  • Hi, Amanda.  If you don't know the person, let them know you only take orders from your website .  Let them know you do not take money orders of any kind and  certified checks, as well.  These are people who are trying to compromise your bank account. I received an email from someone named Linda (South Carolina) for a $202 order. She told me that she was deaf and did not use credit/debit cards. She asked me for my mailing address so that I could receive a certified check from an institution that was indebted to her, to take the amount for the products and mail the balance to her daughter (at a different address) who was in the process of planning a wedding. LOL! She really thought I had just fallen on my head from a truck! BEWARE! This was not the first SCAM email I've received.

  • I've received the same text and email from this lady I had her email address as khaid7261@aol.com; she said that she was with a City Social Club preparing for a singles hosting in my city (Houston) wanted to pick up the products from me but wanted to send me the money first. She wanted my address and phone number. I gave her the cell phone number since she had already texted me but I gave her a PO Box # for the address. I'm so glad I read this because I was already not feeling right about this deal. If you need anything from me such as emails that she was sent me let me know.
