How to spot an Avon email scam

Updated on October 20, 2010

Avon scammers

Source

The internet is full of scammers

This is a fact, and it's just something a person has to accept and live with. Don't ignore it.

If you're an Avon Rep, and especially if you have an online store, your email address will be in the public domain, which means scammers will be able to find you. Unfortunately, it means you have to take every single contact request with a grain salt and a critical eye, and you can't be impulsive or greedy. Fortunately, though, there's a lot of commonalities in the emails they send, since most are simple copy-and-paste jobs, and you should be able to tell when someone is legit or not.

Look out for the following:

- Someone who lives in another state, but is coming through on "a showbiz" or who represents themselves as a "retail buyer" (which is against the contract you signed, anyway), or who is out of the country for now and still wants to order.

- Someone with a name and a bunch of numbers as their email address. Pay attention to the names used; scammers will often change the number part, but keep the same name or something similar.

- A sob story about being deaf / blind, a single mother, and having lost someone in an accident recently-- especially if they claim all three. It's playing on your sympathies so you won't question them when they say strange things.

- Really poor grammar and punctuation, like they barely know English. Most of the scams come from overseas.

- Someone who asks to pay through their boss's check or a finance department, or who wants a lot of personal information to send you a money order-- it's all an attempt to get enough info to steal your identity and / or get you blamed for check fraud. They'll send three or four times what they owe you, then ask you to wire it back to them. If you do, you'll find out in a few days that the check was reported stolen and you didn't actually have the money in the bank to wire to them, and now you're out thousands of your own dollars, because the wire will still go through.

- Large orders between 200 and 600$ of the most expensive products in multiple quantities. They want to sell your products overseas, AND get your money.

- All the emails will have similar text. The names, businesses and products might change, but the instructions and the explanations will almost be identical.

- A request to have some third-party mail courier pick up the order and send it somewhere else. It will usually be overseas, or somewhere rural like West Virginia. If they can't pick it up and pay you in person, you don't need their business.

What to do about it

You'll likely get a lot of these emails, so it's easiest if you fight form letters with form letters. Write up a polite reply message for when you get contact emails, and anticipate what they're going to say: direct them to shop through your e-rep site, tell them you can't accept credit cards except through the site's system, and you'll only accept checks in person, with ID, phone number and contact info (and maybe something to make scammers nervous, like a thumb-print or something). If they aren't local, which they never are, tell them they can only order through your site, and you'll gladly help them find someone local to where they live. Send out the same answer every time, so when you get hit multiple times by one scammer, they know you're onto them. Most won't contact you again when you say you can't help them, but they may try under a different name; tell them the same thing.

If it's not a scammer, they'll be reasonable and try to work with you without offering to have a third party send you the money or asking you to run a credit card for them because they can't figure it out.

Keep all your correspondence in case it's needed to prove that they're scammers or that you were scammed.

Go online and post articles like this one so people can find the information, and report the emails and details to scam-watching sites-- do a quick google search and you'll find dozens of them.

If you already accepted a check from one, check the name on the check against the name they gave you and any contact info you have on them-- if it's something totally unlikely to need a bunch of makeup, if the names don't match, if the amount is way too much, and / or if the address is from somewhere different from where they said they're from, it's a scam and it's probably stolen or forged. Hand it over to the bank or to the local FBI office with a full report of where it came from. If you've already deposited it, wait a minimum of three weeks-- it will always bounce or un-deposit if it's fake, and turn it in to the bank then, too. But you shouldn't have gotten that far, if you're not taken in!

    Below is my response to my scammer and a template I'll be using for any future scammers. I will just customize to whatever event they refer to. Also interesting fact regarding the address I Googled. There was a sign in the front yard of this property that looks to be a Modeling Agency. Wouldn't you think they would travel with make-up products? Common sense, where has it gone?

    ---------------

    Good Morning Marilyn:

    Your future photo shoot sounds exciting. However, I am not authorized to place an out of state order. Please place your order on-line through the e-store or simply Google “local Tallahassee Avon Representative” to find a representative in your area to assist you.

    I am sorry that I cannot be of assistance but wish you well on your travels and your upcoming event.

    Last week, I received a similar email from Maribel Cooker. It wasn't difficult to tell it was a scam. I couldn't find much online about scams with that name, though but it was definitely a scam. Today, I received another similar Avon request from April Weiss, and there is a lot online about scams with her info.

    Also add "Barbara Beaver" with the email address Barbarabeaver1961@ethelbullard01.33mail.com to the list of people to look out for. This person just emailed me asking to order products. And I already know "Ethel Bullard" is a name commonly used by scammers to target Avon reps. I guess they're running out of names since now they're re-using names as email addresses. Good luck ladies!!!

    Wow, it's amazing to see how long this scam has been going on. Back in January, I got an email from a Sheila Strachan with the email: sheistra@outlook.com. She wanted $100 worth of products. As a new Avon rep who was trying to grow my business I was thrilled. I always like to think the best of people, but I did find it strange the way she wrote things: she kept saying something about getting gifts for a birthday party in the capitol- the capitol of what?? It was also odd how she kept calling me "sis" in the emails.

    She wanted to know the total in advance, and sent me another email saying that she would be paying by a check, and that her assistant had "accidentally" wrote $1000 on the check instead of $100! That finally tipped me off that something was weird- thank goodness I found this site before anything else happened! Since then, I have gotten one or two other emails since which are pretty much written the same way as "Sheila's." I have ignored them.

    Here's one after payment was mailed off:

    I am very sorry am just getting back to you, it has been a very busy period for me and rest of the family. I really appreciate your effort towards helping me with the Avon products order.

    I need to inform you that the payment for the Avon products has been delivered to you on Saturday via USPS courier service, my uncle gave me this tracking number from USPS (she provided the number), so that you can also see its delivery status, please proceed to your bank immediately and get the payment check deposited into your bank account, funds will be available and fully cleared into your account the following day.

    Also, I will like to notify you that my uncle mistakenly added the wedding planner travel expenses to the funds sent to you, all you have to do is to just deduct the money for your Avon items from the fund and Extra $20 as a gift for keeping you waiting and get the rest send to the wedding planner who is to book her ticket via MONEY GRAM money transfer latest by evening today,You can withdraw the wedding planner's money after check has been deposited if you have the funds to cover the amount received, then go ahead to the nearest Money Gram outlet to have it wired to her in Colorado Springs City so that she can book her flight immediately, Because she will be coming down to the area to visit all the vendors that will be working for us on my sister's wedding ceremony day.

    As soon as you send the funds she would be able to provide you with her trip plan to pick up the Avon products.

    Below is the Wedding planner name and address you would send the funds to:

    FIRST NAME : Pharia

    LAST NAME: Richardson

    Add : 3915 Harmony Dr

    city: Colorado Springs

    state: Colorado

    zip code: 80917

    After the transfer get back to me with all the transfer details from Money Gram, the details needed would be the Reference Number ( this is the 8 digit number on the receipt),Senders name and address used, also I will need to know the total amount sent after deducting transfer charges.

    Note: that the transfer charges should be deducted from the rest money you are sending and not from your own money. The funds are needed urgently, so get this done and get back to me as soon as possible.

    Also advice when my Avon would arrive if not arrived yet.

    You can as well text me here for easy communication and please include your name while texting.

    424 900-4584 (text only)

    I am so thankful I found this site. Today a James Pearle just sent me almost the exact same e mail and was persistent on my address, the uncle paying, having birthday party at the capitol, meeting up with the party planner. I was leary, because I said this is a bit much to do when they can order online and have the products delivered. Well, I guess I keep having fun with this....they will get tired before I do.

    [{(This is quite a long comment, I apologize and hope I am not taking up too much space. I have a bad habit of over-sharing.)}]

    Oh my gosh. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!

    I am so glad I trusted my gut on this.

    I was just setting up for the upcoming campaign online and about to dive head first into registering for the Celebrate the Season event, but ended up distracted by the memory of an email I had gotten a few days ago from ANA SILVA. "She" needed Avon products, like *needed* stuff. This was a big deal! (for like five minutes.)

    Since May, I've found 3 customers and only 1 who has actually bought anything apart from myself. I wasn't expecting to become a millionaire overnight or anything but the only paying customer is my MOM (lol) so a big order from someone who wants to pay upfront for some stuff? Heck yeah I'll set it up! The holidays are just around the river-bend!

    So I set "her" up a customer beauty profile. Then I go back to the email to get the items "she" wanted on the order, and re-read the email from beginning to end. I got all the way to the end of the first paragraph when something clicked up in the noggin, because the terminology and disjointed sentences all started seeming really familiar and fishy. "She" states that "her daughter's" birthday is: "coming up on the Octomber 25th 2014 in the capital."{sic}

    I read that and was like.......wait. What? In the capital? Does "she" live in Washington D.C.? Or, maybe "she" will be celebrating "her daughter's" birthday in Austin...'cuz, it's been a while since I took Geography, but Austin's the capital of Texas, right? Suddenly the weird " ============ ==(2)"{sic} thing seemed pequliar...I was like, 'who does that?!' I don't know, it seemed odd to me.

    It reminded me of when the internet was still pretty brand new to most in the 'first world', the emails I would get from people claiming to be from Blizzard (I played World of Warcraft back in the days when I had time to do such things LOL), or my bank, desperately seeking (with very poor grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and...English?) my information.

    Anyhoo, I kept reading to see if any more red flags pop up, to see that "she" wanted to buy all this stuff from me and "she" wanted it all totaled up so "she" could send "her uncle" to come deliver "her" payment with a cashier's check or money order to me in person. Then another person "her shiiping agent"{sic} would come collect the order when it arrived. The thing that made me Google "avon scam email order" was the way "she" requested my information.

    "Please send the quotations and details for your payment.

    My payment? Does "she" want me to pay "her"? 'Cuz it sounds like "she" does! And all of my information is already available via my website (which I'll assume is where they got my email address), so why do I need to give it to "her" when "she" already has it. And who says "quotations" instead of "quote" or "quota" or "total" or "amount". Better yet, why is only my home address acceptable? I have a P.O. box for important things just like this. Why do they want to know where I live? NOPE.

    My b.s. detector started going off in my head, and I then I was pissed off. Well, I've been told that I am a kind, generous, and non-judgemental person with vast amounts of patience, and I'd like to think that my actions and words speak to that (most days, everyone has a bad day now and then)...but with those traits and then having to face the now obvious scam...that's why I was so upset. And I guess why I've typed so much.

    Due to a death in my immediate family just under a year ago, I have been having a really hard time trying to deal with my mourning (Yo tengo a few "invisible" disorders kicking around in the ol' brain pan) and I was and am just so damn tired of being taken advantage of.

    I JUST got scammed by the "Pure Green Coffee Bean" people selling (what I believe to be) fiber pills and calling it a "weight loss supplement"...Sure, I'll take a free trial bottle for just 5$ shipping, its just five bucks, right? Nope. When I send them an email asking why they withdrew NINETY dollars from my bank account without my permission, they claim that in the T&C it states that after 12 days of the free trial bottle they sent me, that I am automatically entered into their "auto-ship" program where they will take my money (well, the money I need for my kid), and then tell me via email that I successfully ordered another 3 bottles of this crap...all for the low low price of 90$ (I guess shipping is included in a parcel of that value?)! They couldn't even be bothered to go that far though, as the package has yet to arrive with what they claim to be my EXPENSIVE green bean magic bullet coffee fat and weight annihilator...its beige colored powder inside a capsule, how exactly is this 'pure'?!

    That email confirmation of my "transaction" was sent at the start of the month (September) and I have yet to see a package arrive from them with this **** that I got stuck paying for. I checked, I triple checked to make sure that there was no catch, because I've been caught before by sneaky buggers and was not looking to get burned again. There is no website for me to visit so I can read these terms and conditions, just an email address and a phone number and a PO box in California.

    The saying goes 'fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.' Well, I'm tired of feeling stupid because I want to believe that in everyone's heart we were all taught and thus know and practice the golden rule (do unto others as you would have them do unto you). I'm working for my grace, giving and loving and trying to be good, to do good...and if I, and others like me, just keep on doing what we're doing, I truly believe that the scammers, the hackers, the identity thieves, the internet trolls, the con jobs, and the shysters (and all the rest of they that would gladly hurt another to get a little closer to the "top" or a slightly larger piece of the "pie"), and all their rotten energy will either give up, or go away. Patience is a virtue...and I have got that in droves.

    One lesson I have learned the hard way through my 33 years experiencing this life cycle, is that the snakes in the grass and the vultures circling overhead can see my generosity and my desire to be all that I can be while loving everyone and everything in our Universe (and all the rest, I suppose!), they know somehow that I give people the benefit of the doubt. I try to find the good in everything, especially in people (it is pretty easy to spot their silver lining in almost everything else). Can they see my light and are attracted like moths? A lot of people are selfish, greedy, and narcissistic, and it scares me to think of just how many sociopaths there are running around pulling scams just like these.

    @KristyMe - your comment was the one I came to first after reading the article and it was like I had been punched in the gut. Sure, I was getting verification as our emails were the same. I foolishly tried to tell myself that maybe Ana Silva was a real person who just doesn't type very well or speak much English..and then I saw that you had gotten the same email from Ana Silva... *facepalm*

    Thank you so much for posting this, Samantha, and we should all keep making sure that this doesn't just fade away because everyone thinks its over or been abandoned due to everyone knowing its a scam, they'll keep trying to find new way to bleed us dry...we need to make sure that no one ever again has to tell their kid that they can't buy those pickled onions they like so much because it just can't be afforded thanks to their mother/father's naivete and someone else's apathy and greed.

    Sorry for the long post. I hope it hasn't put too many of you to sleep. Be well, everyone, and many blessings of love, laughter, and an abundance of wealth in all that you find most valuable (if that something is other than love, of course).

    I have been selling Avon for about 8 months now and this is probably the 6th email I have received. At first it was really nerve wracking, but now I actually have fun with it. I am awaiting reply from this moron to see what she has to say. I always give them the upfront statement : I DO NOT GIVE CHANGE. I had my first one person that sent me $2700 for $167 in merchandise. I really thought this person was going to have a heart failure when I told them "Thank you for the tip, it is very much needed and appreciated." Oh the emails started to fly right away... I even went as far as to call the bank the check was drawn on and the money was there. I didn't use the number for the back on the check. I looked up the bank on Google and called them. they said the money was there. I want so bad to get them at their own game. I am considering opening another account with the check and seeing what happens. Get the money and then close the account. LOL... anyone have any ideas on this? I just want to get them back for all the people that they have scammed?

    Hi there,

    I'm Vicki, thank you so much for your message, I'd like to order some Avon products, I'm a make up artist and I'm currently working on a project (movie set) in Alaska. I've never used Avon products before, I usually go for Clinique and Revlon but I'd like to try some new things. I put together the items and I'm gonna need them by late July, I could have just ordered them from the Avon website but the director of art is paying for them so I'm gonna need you to please help order them. Below is the list of the products with their corresponding product numbers:

    SuperExtend Extreme Waterproof Mascara: Product # 665-847 (Qty 2)

    Avon Glow Shake and Go Bronzer (Light Product # 605-107 (Qty 2)

    GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss Product # 441-597 (Qty 3)

    TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Duo Product # 665-866 (Qty 2)

    SuperSHOCK Mascara Product # 455-475 (Qty 3)

    ANEW CLINICAL Advanced Wrinkle Corrector Product # 286-989 (Qty 2)

    Please give me the total price of these items. A check will be sent to you and my shipper will come to pick up the items when they arrive at your place, you could schedule a meeting somewhere for the delivery. I'm gonna need your name and address where you want the payment sent to including a phone number I can reach you on just in case of necessity.

    I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

    Have a great day.

    Thank you.

    Vicki Sutton.

    Vicki,

    Thank you so much for the order. I am excited to serve you and your project. I have to place my order on July 21 so I would need CERTIFIED funds prior to ordering. You total will be $126.30. If the funds are sent with anything amount other than what I have informed you of, then that will be mine to keep. I do not give change and do not accept out of state checks. You can Western Union or send it on Paypal, or just send a money order. Please advise me as soon as possible so I can get your order placed possibly sooner than later.

    Thank you again,

    Vanessa Merritt

    Thank you so much Vanessa, I'm so sorry for getting back to you, the total price of the items has been noted, I just need to know the name and address where you want the payment sent to including a phone number I could reach you on in case of necessity.

    Thanks again.

    Vicki.

    Hi Vanessa,

    I just got off the phone with the art director and it's been confirmed that the payment for the Avon product has been sent out via USPS courier services and should arrive within the next 24 hours, but I'm afraid there has been a mistake on the amount of the money sent, he inadvertently sent my flight reimbursement with payment for the Avon products, I would have wanted you to send the check back but it would cause a delay and I really don't want that at all so I want you to please go ahead and cash the check and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to send the remaining funds to my shipper via MONEYGRAM MONEY TRANSFER after you take out the payment for the Avon order: My shipper's detail is below:

    Name: James Roberts

    City: Monroe

    State: Georgia

    Zipcode: 30655.

    The amount on the check is $1970.00 you may take sending charges from the remaining amount and send the rest via MoneyGram, When the money is sent, I want you to please get back to me with the Reference Number, sender's name and address and the exact amount sent.

    I'm hoping I can trust you with the rest of the funds.

    Thank you so much. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

    Vicki Sutton.

    Vicki,

    I have received your check and will order the products on Monday. As I had told you in the initial contact email, I do not give change. This check is more than needed so you have two choices: 1) resend payment with the correct amount, or 2) I will deposit and the balance is mine to keep. I will not send money to anyone! I told you this from the start. Please let me know before Monday morning. If I don't hear from you then I will assume that the transaction will continue and the difference is mine to keep.

    Thank you for your understand.

    I just got off the phone with the art director and it's been confirmed that the payment for the Avon product has been sent out and should arrive via the next 2-3 business days but I'm afraid there has been a mistake on the amount of the money sent, he inadvertently sent my flight reimbursement with payment for the Avon products, I would have wanted you to send the check back but it would cause a delay and I really don't want that at all so I want you to please go ahead and cash the check and I was wondering if you would be so kind as to send the remaining funds to my shipper via Western Union or Moneygram Money Transfer after you take out the payment for the Avon order, I would let you know the name and address which you'll remit the rest of the funds to, I hope I can trust you with the rest of the funds because people can be really funny nowadays.

    Please let me know as soon as you get this email.

    Thank you.

    Natalie.

    I too am a new Avon Rep., and was suspicious, so I googled the email address and discovered that this same message (and exact order) has been sent to several new Reps under different email names. First, I received a message from my online site:

    You have received a 'contact me' request, in your address book from the following Customer. Please review the message and notify the Customer as needed. If you've already viewed this message from your Address Book, you can disregard this message.

    Then, not knowing better, I replied to this email message requesting contact information and her order. I then received this email:

    All I can say is WOW! I almost fell for this scam too. I just started selling AVON and I was excited to get a customer contact. But then it hit me as I was placing the order, --- Why would they need me to do things directly and give out my personal information when they found me on my AVON website??? All they had to do was place and pay for the order there and AVON would have taken care of everything else. It just reaked of crookedness! I am so glad that this information was here so that others can see and take heed!

    I am a newer AVON representative and I got an e-mail a couple of weeks ago. TERESA BOATMAN from Teresa's Sister Modeling Agency e-mailed me and wanted to order some products. This person said they were coming down from Pennsylvania to do a photo shoot at the end of February. I fell for it and I was sent two checks for $1,970. I was very alarmed, but at the same time I was under the impression that they needed plane tickets to get here. I got a phone call from her personal assistant telling me how to take care of it. Thankfully, my bank holds funds for 2 full business days before they are available. When I called my bank to ask them to release the funds, they told me they believed the checks were bad. I did my research and found this website. I will be going to my bank to get copies of these checks so I can take them to my police department. I don't know if they will be able to do anything about it, but these people have my address so I would rather be safe than sorry. This is the last e-mail I received from them after I told the "PA" on the phone that I didn't believe they were a real company. They are unbelievable!

    This is Teresa once again i informed my PA to call you so as to explain the situation of things to you and he told me you were sounding funny on phone.How is that possible when you have my funds i am a God fearing woman and i believe what goes around comes back around i will never do anything to hurt anyone.

    I beg you with the name of God the cash is needed to get our flight tickets so kindly help me have it done tomorrow before noon.You can send 2,000 to my PA and hold the rest as a proof when i arrive and come for my Avon in person then i will collect the rest of my money from you.I will be waiting to hear from you.Have a wonderful day and God bless you....

    I e-mailed back saying that I was not going be contacting them anymore. I didn't send the money to them so I will not have to pay any fees to my bank, thankfully. I will have to send the products back to AVON so I will be losing money from shipping, but it could have been so much worse.

    I am an Avon Rep from Illinois. I received a letter from Catherine Kidd (2 emails addresses on my site, catherinekidd003@yahoo.com and catherinekidd004@yahoo.com) and the order and email is identical to a couple others in here, like ltiruette. I just responded back with a "Hello,

    We have a feature on our site that allows you to order and pay online, and products will be delivered to you or your client within 2 business days. This would be a much faster and effective way for you to order and receive the products you are looking for. There is a free shipping option available to you, as well. Please go to www.youravon.com/jdrewes to order and obtain your free shipping offer.

    Thank you."

    And then I decided to google the name of her company "Catherine Sister Modeling Agency Incorporation" and that's how I found this page.

    A couple months ago I had a person, who I thought really might have been legit, but wasn't entirely sure of, so I answered her back, directing to my site, but she was in Paris at the time, so I wasn't going to be mailing anything there!

    I have been a rep for a few years now and I think that I get one at least each month. The last one, after my initial contact asking how I could help a new potential customer, and I received the standard "scam" order - I believe I responded not in the manner stated above - I told them "imagine how excited I was to get an email from a possible new customer only to find it was just another Avon Scam - Wow! Don't y'all ever get tired of it? Tell me seriously - does anyone ever fall for this anymore? Move along and try again. " I haven't had any in a couple of months now - keeping my fingers crossed......

Checking online and found out that this is a scam against Avon e-reps since 2010, i ordered the products but did not send them. I received e-mails from patriciasmith788@yahoo.com and lisawilliams87@gmail.com.

    I got an email for am James Lewis, the email was very simple stating he was interested in placing an order. I thought it strange from the beginning because Lewis is my last name! Lewis is also a very common name so I did not think much of it and sent a friendly reply. I asked which item he was interested in and provided him with the link for my web-page! I received an email back tonight that looks much like the one I read in these comments. I started to order and got to the second item number, which could not be found! For some reason at this point my brain provoked me to do a little research and see if this was in fact a scam as I first suspected. I Goggled "Avon Scam James Lewis" and found this page!! I then looked up the name of the company they used in the email. 1 Magnificent Modeling incorporation (1MM) from Chicago, IL, while only having been accredited my the BBB since 12/12 has a A+ rating with the BBB! I have half a mind to call this company in the morning and ask for this James Lewis and see what happens !!!

    I do not know why but for some reason I still find myself amazed by the lengths people will go to take advantage of others. Only a few day ago I received a very believable fraudulent offer for credit! Good this I had sense enough to check the company out on the BBB and lo and behold ANOTHER SCAMMER!!! It really is a shame and this low life had the nerve to use my last name to try and scam me!!

    Please be careful fellow Avon Reps.. Here is a copy of the email. They really are all similar in the smallest ways and Please remember if it does not feel right is more likely then not isn't!!!

    Oh shoot, and after I went to all the trouble of figuring up the stupid total! Mine was from Mary Davis, coming from Florida to West Virginia, on "a showbiz." It was almost word-for-word the one up in the story, so I won't post it again.

    I was a little wary, because of the spelling and such, but having recently had an email conversation with a manager from a local restaurant that looked much the same, I thought it was probably just par for the course these days...

The name is Emily Carland. Email is emilycaand03@yahoo.com. I Googled their name, email, and company they were talking about. Their name didn't come up at all like it was a new email and I even told them they could contact me on Facebook for it is public for this very reason. I don't expect them to be contacting me because of the email that I responded to. People really need to get a life...

    Well I wish I would have researched email scams for Avon before I accepted an order. Beware of Patricia Smith..her email address is patricia.smith443@yahoo.com. Her phone number is (831) 205-3052. I was talking to my manager yesterday, and she was like if it is to good to be true then it probably is. Patricia asked me for a total, my address, and my phone number. She said that she was having problems with her cc, so that is why she contacted me. She ordered 13 items. Today she sent me an email stating that her trustee sent me a money order through UPS. I called UPS to stop the delivery, but UPS already stopped the delivery. It was sent a government agency for inspection. Luckily I can send it back to Avon, but I am out of the shipping cost. This has opened my eyes! I just wanted to put my story out there, so this does not happen to someone else. I always want to see good in people, and that is my downfall sometimes. PS..She also said " I hope we can trust each other" ouch! lol.

I got another from a lisa palmer but i do not know if that is a scam i believe it is though.

    Thank you so much for this insight. I'm new to Avon as a rep (about 5 months) and I was so excited to "receive" new customers through my website, that Isent emails introducing myself and let them know how to reach me for questions. When I got a response the next day, I noticed that the spelling and grammar was off. That tipped me off right away. I kept reading the email and I noticed they had some odd requests reference payment and delivery. That, in my mind, was confirmation that this was a scam. My "customers" were Mary Moon and Sarah Cross. I also received another request from Catherine Pope with a tflourish.us email account. If my radar hadn't gone off, I would've lost about $250. Thank goodness for "Radar" :)

    I"m sorry can I also ask - I realize it is a scam but can someone tell me exactly what all is taking place? Is it an identity theft thing because it sounds like there is genuine money coming from somewhere that it isn't supposed to be. if it's a fake check I would like for her to send it can call the authorities, but if it's identity theft that is much harder to do than track down someone using fake checking. Fake checking can be somewhat tracked and stopped, fake identities are harder. I'm trying to figure if I should allow her to send it or not because if it can ultimately help in stopping them I am game, I've done this before. I also realize they can look up this site just as easily as I can and may not contact me again. For future reference I'm happy to accept it if it will help to catch them. But what exactly occurs in this scam? It sounds like you get a check for more than they owe and they want you to mail some money back, but then I'm assuming the check is fake or coming from someone that isn't them that it shouldn't be coming from...? Probably coming from someone they are ripping off. Honestly who "sponsors" a modeling agency? I would think model's work and pay their agencies. I don't know of them being "sponsored"... like "have a dollar? pay a model!" seriously... I don't know many destitute people in fashion unless they're super bad at it.

    at first i didn't think anything about it so i sent back the total and advised that she she is a new customer and out of state i will not order until i receive legit funds.. then i got this email saying that she will send payment but a check has been mistakenly written for an over payment which included her plane fair and would i send her back the overerage. once i stated this sounded like spam and that all she had to do was either cancel the check and send me the correct amount or if/when she sent the check i could just hand it back to her in person and she could pay me in cash. i also advised that since she was writing a check that that money isn't solid uuntil cashed so technically she still had her plan ticket money. but if she wasn't comfortable with the website via credit card and she in fact wasn't a spammer she would just wait until she got here for me to collect her items.....haven't heard from her :)

    BEWARE AVON REPS. These people are using other Avon Reps information and using them to order Avon from you! If they get your address, they will also use your name and address to SEND OUT THE PHONY CASHIER'S CASH VIA UPS!!! AND SEND YOU THE BILL!!!! These people ARE SCUM! It appears that the sender may be in JOLIET, IL 60432! They will handwrite an invoice, use a PHONY UPS account number, use your name and address and UPS will send you the BILL. USUALLY A BIG BILL! The receivers are all AVON REPS like you and me! Please DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!!

    First I received a notice that "Natalie Reed" had signed up on my site as a new customer. Then I received an email from Natalie stating she would like to order products. When I emailed her, I then got a new email from Darcy McCall:

    Hi there,

    I'm Darcy, I'd like to order some avon products, I'm a make up artist and I'm currently working on a project (movie set) in Peuto Rico. I've never used Avon products before, I usually go for Clinique and Revlon but I'd like to try some new things. I put together the items and I'm gonna need them by the first week of July. Below is the list of the products with their corresponding product numbers:

    SuperExtend Extreme Waterproof Mascara: Product # 665-847 (Qty 2)

    ULTRA COLOR RICH Brilliance (Sienna Sparkle) Product # 665-828 (Qty 2)

    Avon Glow Shake and Go Bronzer (Light) Product # 605-107 (Qty 2)

    GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss Product # 441-597 (Qty 2)

    TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Duo Product # 665-866 (Qty 2)

    Animal Instincts Cosmetic Bag Set Product # 302-763 (Qty 1)

    Go Glam Color Palette Product # 931-017 (Qty 1)

    Please give me the total price of these items. A cashier's check or money order will be sent to you and my shipper will come to pick up the items when they arrive at your place, you could schedule a meeting somewhere for the delivery. I'm gonna need your name and address where you want the payment sent to including a phone number I can reach you on just in case of necessity.

    I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

    Have a great day.

    Thank you.

    Darcy McCall.

    I received an email from Lizy Allen and didn't realize it was a scam until I emailed her and placed the order. Luckily I was able to cancel the order before it went through. But, unfortunately I did give her my address. Could she do something bad with it? I know she has my phone number due to having it on my website. I am really hoping she can't do anything with it. I emailed Avon and will also be talking with my local PD and may even call FBI.

    We received several emails from a Tara Henrick and a Lizzy Allen, both proclaiming to be out of town models wishing to order AVON. This Tara sent us a check from a Elizabeth Santana, and it was being tracked for a "Lizzy Allen". I guess they couldn't keep their alias's together and mixed them up.

    I spoke with the Stewart Talent Agency ion Chicago and they are aware of the scams and have posted a warning on their internet site.

    We received a check in the mail and didn't even open it. please get with your local law enforcement agencies to see if they can help but these morons behind bars.

    I have received several of these emails unfortunately. Most of them, I have noticed, are a combination of a woman's name and a man's name. MELISSA GEORGE for example. The very first one was from a "modeling agency" in California that was coming to my area for a photo shoot and wanted me to use a third party courier service. I sent an email back saying if they were truly interested in ordering from me and since they were so far away it would be more advantageous for them to order from my personal site and have the products shipped directly to them that way they can make sure they are the correct shade/scent. Haven't heard back since.

    This is one that I got about 3 weeks ago. I did fall for it until she told me the check that was sent to me was for $3000 and her order was only $70. After I took the check to the bank she kept texting me telling me to cash the check and send her the money. I told her that she needed to call the bank about it when I did not send her the money she then sent me an email telling me that the FBI were coming to my door and that she knows my address and all my info. It has been a week since I got that email and nothing has happened.

    Hi everyone I have a story myself,I received an email from a Patricia Smith(Pat),she said that she wanted avon products.I really didn't know that it was a scam.This is what she said:"I really appreciate your response.I need you to get me the total of the following items.One of each." She said she was in the United Kingdon on vacation and that she was having trouble using her credit card on my website.I have to admit I almost fell for it.She sent me the money order but instead of 1 there were 2 for $998 each,thats when I thought there was something funny about it.She wanted me to deduct the $237 for the products and then inmediatelly send her the rest trough western union.She kept saying go cash the funds,when are you going to cash the funds.So be carefull everyone this is the information that I have on her. PATICIASMITH964@YAHOO.COM...REGARDS+44 702 4055836 PATRICIASMITH226@GMAIL.COM AND SHE USES THIS NUMBER 831 205 3052 THANK YOU AND STAY BLESSED thats also what she kept putting.

    Melanie Hoskins emailed me too. Apparently M&G Modeling & Promotions from Atlanta, GA is coming to my town in late March. And what a surprise, there must be NO Avon reps in Atlanta or anyone who can sell them a hairbrush and other fairly common and trivial items. Nice try.

    Normally the scam emails are easier to spot because the person is trying to order a very large quantity of items. This one, although still suspicious, was a bit more subtle and because of that may be likely to fool more people. She wanted to order reasonable quantities and this made me think that maybe there was slim chance that the request was legitimate.

    Thanks for making this information available. It helped me determine that the email really was a scam.

    Thanks, when fedex delivers, I plan on not accepting it. Hope I can do that. Have to admit, I've never not accepted a delivery. It's usually something I want. lol

    If you do get to where you get a check, chances are it's a forgery; my bank wouldn't take the one I got the first time this happened. Even if they do, the whole thing is that the money isn't really there: you get this exorbitantly over-paid check, you deposit it, they request the difference back and you send it, and then a few days later, the stolen check is canceled or bounces, and you've really just given them hundreds of dollars of your own money. By then, they're long gone.

    So don't do it!

    I just got this from the first person that contacted me. I believed her story and sent her my contact address along with total for her order. I learned about the scam after receiving this one when I received 3 more. Didn't send my info to them.

    What should I do if I get this check, just ignore it? Write her back and say I know it's a scam and she's not getting her money back? lol Tell her I turned the check in to the police? Can they send someone to threaten me?

    Here is what she wrote me today:

    I am just getting back from my Brothers Burial and I and am just checking my email now and I just want to update you i have a good news for you regarding the payment.I had just read from my Debtors new Secretary that the payment has been issued out to you and that you will be receiving it today via Fedex.. But there is a big problem,cos she informed me that she sent out the whole amount she was owing me instead of her to just send you the amount for the item i am Buying from you,i was so mad at her when i heard this cos i don't know if my money will be safe with you when you get it...But I do believe it will because the Bible ask to trust others so I will trust You. I wanted her to send the remaining of the funds to my Daughter whose wedding is coming up in 2 weeks...I just don't know what to do cos i am totally confused,please ..may i know if my money will be safe with you when you get the payment?..will You be able to get the remaining of my money sent to my daughter after you might have deducted your amount for the item?....Because I need you to have the remaining money sent to my her as soon as you receive the payment so that she get get her wedding stuffs.

    I just got one from Melanie Hoskins

  • profile image

    crtay 5 years ago

    Sorry this is long, but I've received two, probably three of these within a two week span. I received something from Melanie Hoskins, also, just on the 25th, same phone number. The grammar was fine but it kept nagging at me that something wasn't right about it. I decided to Google the modeling agency and came to this site. Thanks for the head's up.

    It's really discouraging when you're just starting out and are excited about working with Avon and get inquires on your website and they turn out to be scams.

    I've also just received something from Lizy Allen, lizyalleno21@gmail.com three days before this.

    And jennifercollins29@gmail.com. The person called themselves Mrs. Allen in reply to my offer to help her. Said she was deaf and her regular Avon lady became ill with breast cancer and left the business and she was looking for another rep. Also said she would refer her other deaf friends. She said she couldn't order from the website because she didn't have a credit card but would send a certified bank check or money order, which ever I prefer. She wanted my contact info in order to send the check. (i gave it. it sounded plausible (had a funny feeling, though, about the fact that her name was so different from the email address). She emailed an order which totaled a little over $200. When she said she'd let me know when she put the check in the mail, I told her when it needed to arrive to get submitted and that it needed to clear before I would submit the order. That's where I've left it. It sounded kind of legit, but there are certain things that are similar to what you all are saying so it, too, is most likely a scam.

    Thanks again for the heads up. I won't be excited about all the inquiries anymore.

    I was contacted through my Avon website by a Melanie Hoskins (404) 913-5998. The fact that this person couldn't use proper grammer made me question if it was a scammer. (Many of the scam emails I receive have lousy grammar). I'm glad I found this site with information from the rest of you. I'm just going to ignore the email and not answer her.

    And here was my reply, hee....

    Dear Melanie: while I am sure that you are a legitimate business person who means me no harm, I am sure you realize how many unscrupulous individuals would seek to rob me of products without giving me payment. For that reason, I do not send any orders without having payment first. For the health and safety of myself and my family, I also do not give out my address or phone number to strangers over the internet.

    I'm sure a fine business such as yours has someone on payroll who would consent to using a credit or debit card on my website, which is the safest and only way to order from me.

    It would be my pleasure to have your business should your payment circumstances change. Thanks for your understanding and I wish you all the best with your upcoming event.

    I received a contact me request from a Natalie Hewitt and after I placed the order I realized it was a scam. "She" bought 110 dollars worth of products and was in quantities of three and didn't order all of the products mostly needed for a photo shoot. Any contact me requests from nnre@jide7.com or natlie@jide7.com beware.

I googled the ABC Modeling and got this site. Thanks everyone for the info, as this sure saved me time and money!

    This is the message I sent to my personal scammer, Natalie Hewitt, Feel free to copy and paste it if you would like to use it as well.

    I am sorry, but I only accept checks in person, with ID, phone number and contact info with a thumb print. Because you are not local, you can only order through my site, but I'll gladly help you find a local representative to assist you in person.

    Hello Miranda,

    I am emailing you to let you know that your payment has been sent out and would arrive via USPS courier service will arrive within the next 48hrs, you may track the progress of the payment by using the tracking number EO054290116US at www.usps.com, I also want you to know that the amount which was sent to you by the sponsor is more than the amount for the items because he mistakenly sent our traveling fees along with the money for the product, I would have wanted you to mail it back but it will cause a set back and I don't want that at all, so I'd like you to please go ahead and cash the check, when you do I want you to please send the remaining fund to my assistant Via Western Union Money Transfer or MoneyGram, his detail is given below:

    Name: James Roberts

    City: Monroe

    State: Georgia

    Zipcode: 30655

    The amount on the check is $1430 You may use about $120 as the sending charges from the remaining amount and send the rest Via Western Union Money Transfer Or MoneyGram, When the money is sent, I want you to please get to me with the Money Transfer Control Number/Reference Number, sender's name and address and the exact amount sent.

    I hope I can trust you with the rest of the funds for our flight ticket because people can be really funny nowadays.

    I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

    Natalie Hewitt.

    I am a Security Enforcement Officer whos beautiful girlfriend sells Avon ( yes I am sucking up) We recieved a mail from NATLIE HEWITT as well she has ordered a lot of products and we recieved a check for 1,430.00 from her sponser in Florida a Mr. Charles L. Bardelis. She alleges she is a model and he mistakenly combined her airfare money into this check and has requested we forward the differance as a Westren Union.

    I will not be able to get the satisfaction of catching her, however I WILL get the satisfaction of playing the "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DIDN'T GET IT? I SENT IT GAME..." Also I will be placing her information onto (419 BAITER.COM) this is a site where scammers get scammed by a person with nothing but time on his side....

    I am an Avon Representative and have been receiving these types of requests on my website. Very annoying! Also a little bit of interesting information. My brother a techi I'd call him, informed me that a group called the Mexican Mafia sends out these emails, wanting small priced items versus a few expensive ones. He told me to check my computer to see if there were any odd things or suspicious. And low and behold I found this Reina Bentley who send me one of those emails apparently was able to break through my fire wall and get themselves added to my Yahoo Messenger list. Now that sucks. Which means they breached my security code for my Yahoo account, wooohoo. Good luck all and God Bless with the new campaign.

    I got the same one shown above from Susan Gribson, at susangribson@yahoo.com.

    I had my doubts about this "order" so I called the number she included in the email and and then looked it up and found this site. Thanks for helping out with the info. My order goes in today. Glad I didn't put it in.

    Hi Cynthia,

    I am fine thank you. I would really love to help you. But, I have one strict policy, I do not order any products w/out payment first. And to be quite honest, I don't feel comfortable giving out my address to a stranger over the internet. Hope that is something you can understand. The only way around this is finding a way to visit my webpage and order online w/ a credit or debit card. Which is completely safe and confidential. I really do appreciate your business and I truly want to help. But this way is just not safe for me and my business. Please if there is another possible way around this, let me know. I look forward to hearing from you again soon. Thank You!!!

    I was contacted by email from a Dacie Hoskins and I took her order it was around $60 & she said a check will be sent to me. I didn't know she was a scammer & she also signed up on my site. What made me look into this is it just didn't seem right & why not order from site but I overlooked it & said to self some people want to talk to a person it's more personal that way. But now I know & the next time I'll be way more careful & when order come I'll send it back. Also I type n her name & this website came up & I just started reading the comments & saw her name I'm so angry right now, how can low life people do these things to people that is really trying to have a career for them self it just burn me up n side & she had the nerve to say have a God blessed day. She & all the scammers will pay for their wrong doing one day

    Just like Cyndi, I also had a order from Dacie Hoskins in the amount of $55.00. Fortunately, I also checked with my bank, this was a check from her "sponsor" out of Washington state, but the Fed Ex was addressed from New Hampshire. I knew this was a scam when it was addressed from two different states and was told to keep $70 instead of the $55 for the order and send the rest back via western union to a James in Monroe, Ga. I emailed her today and haven't heard a response back, probably never will. BEWARE of the scammers.

    I recieved e-mails very similar to the ones listed. My original contact with this person came from my Avon web site. Her name is Dacie Hoskins.Info@jide.com. She said she was from a modeling company from GA, and they were going to be in Roswell,NM for photo shoot, and she wanted to order some products. She ordered 83.24 worth of products. She said I would recieve payment by FedEx courier, but that a mistake had been made and the travelling funds had been put in with my Avon check. She wanted me to remit the excess funds through Western Union to a James Roberts in Monroe,GA. I told her I did not feel comfortable with doing that and I would send the check back to her voided. She became adamant that I would set them back. I notified the bank where this check for 14500.00 originated. They said it was a scam and not to cash the check. I have notified the police dept in GA, and CO where the return address on FedEX envelope was. The name on that envelope was Justin Bruner, and the name on the check was Brenda Coats. The police told me that it is a Fed Govt responsibility and they don't get involved unless it's over 15,000.00. This is a shame, because these people must be stopped. I am only out an 83.00 Avon order, but it could have been worse. After I told Dacie, I would not the check on the recommendation of the bank, I have not heard from her.Beware Avon reps this is a big problem!

    Avon is a Scam. Not more than a misconception. Avon is the world’s largest direct marketing company that deals with beauty products. Avon Company was started in 1886 by Mr. David McConnell with the name of “California Perfume Company” .Actually it was founded in New York. Later on in 1939 the company changed its name to “Avon”. Tody, Avon sells its wide range of products like skin care products, cosmetics; fragrances etc for men, women and even for children worldwide. this is from http://www.mlmtipsandadvice.com.au/mlm-companies/a... .

    What's really ridiculous is that these are all basically the same email, which means someone is passing this stuff around with the contact info to reach all of us sellers, but no one is telling the next guy that we won't play along! I mean, someone who's a perpetual dead end is just a waste of their time if they're really trying to get money and / or product off us.

    WOW! I knew it! I was also sent this same scam. I knew immmediately it was a scam.

    Be aware that there are some very ruthless people who will try anything to get your money!

    Glad I found this site. I will pass it on to others.

    I've shared the e-mails these crooks and I have engaged in. I've tried to keep them entertained so that I can figure out where they are and so I can report them to the FBI... After the last e-mail we traded they have discontinued all contact. Guess they realized I caught on!

    Them:

    Thanks for your concern..I want you to get back to me with the total cost of my order so that i can proceed with my payment..I hope to read back from you asap

    First this guy said he was coming to my area (New Hampshire) then when I asked him for contact and shipping info, he gives me a modeling agency in California and an address. A google search shows that the company is real. This is about the 20th time this has happened, so I wanted to see how far he would try to take it. I told him if he wanted shipping to California, just find a rep there. He said he had no problem paying for shipping and would need the items by next week. I instructed him to overnight a postal money order to my PO Box. Of course, he doesn't want to use the postal service, and asked for my address for UPS. I told him sorry I don't accept deliveries at home. Then he was gone! What surprised me was that he actually used proper grammar and spelling. They usually come across like english is a second language. The last one that tried, I actually told them try using spellcheck and proper English. Maybe it was the same idiot! ha ha

    Thank you for your response, I am freelance modeling agent. I am coming with my clients to your area for photo shoot and I would need you to get these items for us:

    MAKEUP : FACE

    Smooth Minerals Foundation Transparent Glow 875-582....(3)

    Smooth Minerals Blushed 432-558.....(3)

    FRAGRANCE

    Derek Jeter Driven Eau de Toilette Spray 302-672.......(4)

    Ironman Eau de Toilette Spray 011-07.......(2)

    JEWELRY

    Men's Silvertone Watch 491-043 .......(2)

    Men's Everyday Watch 406-150 .........(2)

    Men's Stainless-Steel Bracelet 647-003....(2)

    SHOE

    Memory foam shoe black XL 391-490 ...........(3)

    Shine-Sport cushion walk sneaker 10M 884-344........(3)

    Do let me know the total cost plus the necessary tax I am to pay on it. Also to let you know that I cannot use my credit cards due to some problems I'm experiencing on them and I'm willing to pay for the order in advance including shipping fee. I'm using a mode of cashier check and I would need to know the total of all the products I requested and please get to back to me ASAP.
