Scammers Target Mary Kay Consultants

Tools

By Aimee Burnett

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) There's a new scam out there targeting Mary Kay consultants both locally and nationwide.

The scammer contacts the independent cosmetic contractors by email wishing to place an order.

The consultant then receives a check well over the order amount that the scammer claims is a mistake.

The scammer then asks the consultant to simply cash the check and wire the rest of the money via Western Union back to him or her.

The checks are fraudulent and are tied to the PNC Bank in Chicago, Illinois.

According to bank officials, consultants in Twin Falls, Louisiana, and Arizona have all been targeted.

If you receive one of these checks contact your local law enforcement.

Do not cash it, you will be responsible for that money.
