Here's a New Scam - at least for me
« on: August 12, 2017, 02:17:37 PM »
This one has so many examples of poor spelling and sentence structure, it leaves no doubt in my mind. 

Note the credit card variety he can pick from :)

By the way, this guy has also tried this scam on web developers in 2016 -

I got that one last month! I liked the fact that he trusted me to come up with the design with no approval needed (and of course, no info from which to work)
Not even any hint at direction other than Happy Birthday Daughter!
Good for me that I don't do dye sub, so I couldn't be tempted, LOL!

Sorry, I can't help you on the shirts but give her $100 for me and I'll reimburse you the next time you're in town.
