My business got a call today from someone wanting to purchase something. So far, so good. The call came through a relay service that helps deaf people make phone calls. Again, no big deal.
But the caller wants to buy 300 of the item, which I sell for around $35 a piece. This is where we went . The caller could have a legitimate need for 300 widgets, however he could easily purchase the item wholesale and save a ton of money (my profit) by doing so.
Further, he was in a hurry to complete his transaction via a credit card. He wanted directions to my business so he could send a truck for pickup. Again, these widgets are available wholesale, and the wholesaler would include delivery to his door. These widgets are not rare, their sale is in no way controlled.
My receptionist asked for his number so she could call him back. He was unhappy about this, but gave an email address. I Googled the email addy and got nuthin.
So. . .where is the scam?
