You get the e-mail, from a client, who is looking for a professional wedding planner to handle all the details for his up and coming wedding, He is in the United Kingdom, and tells you what the vision is and ask if you can handle the details for them? They give you all the details by email,and your suppose to email them back with your quote, and tell them how you can provide them with their request. In just a few days, you receive a certified letter and Money Order for your services.

So you think that everything is great…! So you email the client and tell them the check was received and… they say ” Could you please send 3000 or so to other vendor, that is waiting on his funds to get his job done! Here is the scam …Money Order looks good,but it is forged! What they are hoping for is that you will send them the cash back, and your left with owing the bank all this money!

I was lucky enough to have just read up on this scam, that was posted on the Association for Wedding Professionals International website. I have enclosed a picture of the fake check. Now I can spot them onsite..and I like to collect them just for kicks and giggles.

Just a little FYI for my wedding professional friends.
