    I was just going to say no thanks, but for some reason I thought I ask more. She had the face to tell me that those are their sites LOL They can't even be bothered to do a little research.

    It seems ridiculous, but it's probably a freeroll for them to try to scam somebody. If it didn't work some percentage of the time, they wouldn't do it in such a goofy way because they'd be forced to step up their game I guess.

    the scams are keeping on coming in all color and shape.
    it is important always to verify who you are dealing with, especially when people are coming to you.
    thanks for the heads up Maria!

    As with ANY blind approach at fakebook, twitter or any other social media outlet.

    If someone approaches you claiming to represent a brand, instead of blindly responding, possibly revealing private information, visit the brand directly and contact them through the official channels the brand lists as their official methods of contact.

    If the said brand lists that specific social media account as official, double check the spelling as is needed, or ignore the approach.
