An alert for the wedding community... I have received multiple emails from this person claiming to plan a wedding. After some research on the internet, the same person writes to performers, people with homes to rent, etc with a similar premise.

These types of scams often run in the form of purchase of services using credit cards. They send you a higher amount than quoted then expect you to refund the difference. The credit cards are often stolen, so the credit card company will void the amount at a later date.

OMG!! I just received this exact email like 3 days ago!! Thanks for the notice!! I will also pass the word!!!
I got it too. I hate that people get these emails and think its ok to do that. They do the same thing if you are look for apartments on different sites come up with wild stories I'd rather listen to my 3 year olds tall tales.
you can tell a scam letter by the poor grammar and spelling. I have received these plus many more scam letters. I told one that I would report him to CISIS and Interpol if he continued to send me these stupid scam emails.

I didn't hear from any for awhile but they are back again....never ever take these seriously. Especially with them using a credit card. Good luck....oh, don't do what I did....I actually broke one....I kept him on the hook, he tried to woo me, I never once believed him. He wanted me to send him money. I said I would, never did but he finally couldn't take it any longer and finally confessed he did it because he needed money.

He says we are too easy and believe too easily......I don't believe these emails and the ones where my email has won millions and millions of dollars....

Good luck!! Just be aware....
Um...I hope no one is naive enough to fall for this!
