Hi

You are receiving this email to alert you of a current scam targeting people in the wedding industry.

I have received two invitations in the last week to shoot weddings overseas. The broken English, the lack of "feeling" in the email, and the nearness of the dates made me suspect a scam and sure enough a search on Google revealed what it is an off shoot of the earlier translator scam:

For those who want a quick explanation: They offer to pay for you to shoot overseas and send you a check or money order. They ask you to buy your ticket through their preferred travel agent as soon as you receive the check. The "travel agent" belongs to them. You send money to the agent. Then their money order bounces. You try to complain to the travel agent, who has vapourised. You lose the airfare and feel burnt!

I have already placed an alert with the US Frauds commission to investigate, but please be extremely careful. I have found overseas clientele ALWAYS initiate contact with a phone call.

Forewarned is forearmed.
