Scam alert

Hi all,

recently I was sent a cheque for £14,000 from the Barclays Muswell Hill account of the Moravain Church (they exist!). This was an (over)payment for a garden design course of two weeks for five people. The clients are based in South Africa, including Jude Richards of 234 church street,Pretoria,0002 South Africa

I have now found out the same thing has happened to another company running courses in France.

As my Granny always said, "If it looks too good to be true it probably is!". The internet had not been invented in her day, but she seems to have seen it all coming.

Save your excitement for your real customers: this one's a scam. for more details if needed.
