Thanks for sharing this. I got an email a few weeks ago that was bizarre and received the same email you did today! I knew it was spam but wasn't sure what they were trying to get. Makes total sense.

Well, thats a new one. So glad you were not taken. Wonder how the rest of this scam goes.

T-Shirt guys

We got a very similar email but the request to us was for T-Shirts that they wanted screen printed with "Happy Birthday Betty, 8 Years Old"
We get variations of these fake emails weekly and these always have grammar & spelling mistakes. Yours said she was in the hospital, mine today said she was hearing impaired so that's why it was an email and not a phone call to us. If too good to be true.....

Chris, so glad you were not taken. We have gotten so many of these requests over the years that I dont even publish them all. Ill share something that the police told me the first time it happened to us, something weve all heard before... If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They prey on greed and spend hours and days looking for victims. It must work some of the time or they would not keep doing it. Best of luck at your coffee shop!
