I received one this morning from a Dr. Theresa, however, the "Dr." misspelled inquiry as enquiry and I deleted without reading it.

It saved me time & effort. Glad to avoid scams. This brought me to the forum, for the 1st time. Good to use it finally. I've been a member for 9 months. I'd forgotten about this perk.'

I am brand new(haven't had my first client yet) and I just got that e-mail. I have to admit that even though I new something was wrong I cautiously went along briefly. I really wanted my first client. Luckily,my better judgement kicked in and I deleted it. Now I know to keep my guard up.

These are so easy to spot. If the English usage is atrocious then I figure it's a scm. Other give always for me would be a "conference in my city". Not much chance and very easy to check out! In the scams they always offer way too much info for a first inquiry!
