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.
