Question: How do you recognize scam wedding inquiries received by email or online sources?
Online scammers are getting clever. Their grammar is getting better. They are getting as detailed as possible to make us think they are legitimate. Sometimes they get the details wrong (sorry, I’m a harpist, not a violinist), and sometimes they don’t use our names in the greeting (they just say, “Hello” or “Pleasure be with you today” but not “Hi Anne”). If you miss those red flags, here’s the one big giveaway: scammers are too anxious to pay us. They want to know where to send a check right away to secure our services. I’ve been contacted by couples that are anxious to book me, but they are never anxious to pay me.
