Re: blank t-shirts scam alert

Hi Ryan,

The name’s Rodney, not Randy :slight_smile:

There was a recent email broadcast from SanMar that noted that several
distributers had actually accepted the orders and shipped the items only to
find out that the credit card was stolen and the fedex account was invalid.

The sheer number and similarity of the emails, along with the varied names,
also tends to show it “scammy” side. It’s very similar to the Nigerian bank
account scam emails.

Re: blank t-shirts scam alert

Ryan, the reason I know it’s a scam is…Good ol’ Common Sense. :slight_smile:
Who places an order for “any weight or brand” for that many shirts anyway?
It would probably be a better scam to not be so greedy and only order…
say, 200 or so shirts.
