Latest massage scam

Here is the latest massage related scam to arrive in my email inbox. Note the awkward sentence structure and wording of phrases (a request for "Remedial massage treatment") and long duration of requested services. I've seen this in many forms through the years. If responded to, they will eventually want to send you a money order from some other source, like an employer or other company.

Trust me... this is bogus. Don't even bother to respond to emails like this.

Stay safe out there, LMT's!

Blessings and love,

I just received this mail myself and wondered why no details were specified on where they were arriving and remedial for what.

So did a Google search on the company name to see who the guys are and checking if it's a scam, and your blog is the first to come up.

Thanks for the warning!

Ha ha, me too. Not the 1st time we have received such an email, the last one was from a models agent supposedly and they asked us to take a credit card payment for the fees, plus an extra amount that we were supposed to forward onto a firm providing a set for her photo shoot in Eastern Europe of somewhere. Yea right...
