Bogus Customer Alert!

Maybe this is running in the same vain as the Rev. Smith from many months ago.

I have had a very insistent customer who wants to pay by credit card only and is requesting bank details.

I started suspecting him when his first email was full of in-correct English.

His order then made me suspicious:

He wanted 100off Fire Assembley Point 9 and 100off Fire Assembley Point 8 all 600 x 400 on rigid. Nice order but very odd!

His name is Ned Harrison and email is nedltd@gmail.com.

Just seems a bit sus to me?

Not heard from him since I told him he could order all his signs via paypal on my online shop.

Just a warning - Maybe nothing

If he's trying to order these without even asking a price before hand you can be assured that he's in cahoots with the very reverend Smiffy :-?

I don't understand why, if he wants to pay by credit card, he needs your bank details.

It's the other way round - you need his card info.

Employ the bargepole. :D
