We mentioned wedding planner scams back at the beginning of the month. Below are some that have come to our attention in the last few weeks:
“I am David Roy, from London England. I am writing to get more information on wedding/ reception venues and also so in need of the services of a wedding planner.
Daisy and I are planning to have a wedding in July 2009 (any date in July will be fine) and will require more information on this as we plan also to have the wedding in your region We are looking for venue and a planner to help us plan our wedding/reception.
So far, we have not made any arrangement. 30 to 40 guests are expected to attend. We are considering a budget of $45, 000 USD but will allow a few extra if necessary. I will make a prepayment as initial deposit for this booking via credit card once you confirm availability. Please note that you (wedding planner) are to arrange for a Videography, Music Entertainment, Photography, Officiant, cake and flowers.
Please do confirm this date and get back to me.
