Here's What Everyone Has To Say:

  1. I’ve never encountered these scams in large amounts personally. Most times it’s just pay under 100 to get registered in some european country to used them as a client. -_- It never hurts to be aware of these cases though! Thanks for sharing Skyler!

  2. I’m being scammed right now by this wendy edwardo. I’m an automotive shop. Her emails are exactly like the above. Glad I searched her name and found this blog. Thank you.

  3. YO! I swear I just got a very similar response just like this one. I wonder if it is some kind of template that all of these people use. But they responded to a job offer that I placed on there and it was just too perfect. Plenty of spelling errors and grammatical errors. I googled how to avoid online business scam and stumbled across this post. Glad I found this. Strangely the name is not wendy edwardo, but the copy in the email is strikingly similar.

  4. Just had similar spiel from this same scammer. All seemed a bit too good to be true. Quick google search shows up a lot of scam results. Same name – Wendy Edwardo using a NZ rugby banner in her signature.

    1. It’s crazy that they’re still using the same alias after a few years like this. I’m happy you found the article though!

  5. She tried it with me too, wanted “box lunches” for 120 people for her Gram’s surprise birthday party. Wanted me to charge her an additional $1600 on credit card she would supply over my price and give that to her”driver” via cashier’s check when he comes to pick up.After some back & forth and knowing this must be a scam I googled her name, came up with this and e mailed her back saying I hope her ears fall off, haha

      1. She Sen me this email to..
