    OMG, I got this same e-mail, but from a different "orphanage". I looked up the orphanage and I really couldnt find a lot, just that they were located over seas. Now why would someone contact us, out of everyone out there. Kind of odd.

    I have gotten 2 others.

    I got this a few weeks ago with a different name. I quoted. I than got a phone internet call. I was weird because the person was asking me question and would pause. I thought I had a bad connection. She said she was typing what I said to the party.
    I than got an e-mail telling me to contact the shipper. They claimed to be in Africa.
    I decided to not contact them....

    Ask for 1/2 the money up front and that will be the end of it. Watch out for phony money orders ( got two for 4k last month) and deals where they want their shipping company to pick up the order. And don't forget the "I sent you the check for the wrong amount, can you refund the extra money".

    we always get calls with a middle man saying the customer is dead and they are communicating through a messenger software. it was a relay call service. IDK but we get the same thing about once a month.

    i respond to them:
    $75-85.00 per banner
    50% deposit and balance cod cash or bank check no fake credit cards
    and they have to send a courier with a bank check for the balance
    i tell them we can't handle the shipping for an order that large we only use ups
    a few responded with some other funny business but most i never hear from again

    Based on those e-mails alone.... I have boosted our sales by almost $37,558,435.78 last year alone. That's before shipping and handling because they always take care of it on a separate invoice.

    :rolleyes: It might pay off to look into these once in a while my friends.........














    nah..... it's a scam :rock-n-roll:
