Banners Request Scam
By: Gina Hoover 2008

For a long time now, I have been receiving emails from people who claim that they want to order some banners. The emails come from several different people mostly saying its to save orphans, it's for a church or something else. I've received several different versions of the email.

I wrote this article so that you'll recognize that it's a scam. When I receive those emails I just delete them and don't even bother to respond.

If you receive these type of emails like the ones below, beware. If you do make the banners, more than likely the credit card used to pay for the banners will be a stolen credit card number. So don't waste your time fulfilling the orders. I've read about some people responding to the email, and speaking with the person who placed the order only to find out the credit card number was stolen.

Here are a few of the emails to watch out for. There are many more versions. I only kept a few:
