Thanks for your response and i really appreciate it , My name is Julianal. I am a a single Mother of 3 kids . I got your contact from Avon and I would like to
purchase this Items with you on a dealership and not with the company cos i am new to Avon website and i don't operate credit card i don't even make use of credit card at all,
that is why am dealing direct with you .

All the product i want to order from you is for personal use, I will want you to get back to me with the total cost of the listed item i want to
order from you. But we can have a good communication via email because am a computer person and i also make use of relay calls service.

  • When I was a rep I got an e-mail like this, most likely it is a scam. I would write a simple response explaining that you will only take orders face to face or through your website (assuming you have one).

  • No problem. This seems relatively common as my Mother-In-Law who is also a rep received a similar e-mail as well.

  • I get e-mails like that all the time. I respond to them explaining how they can either order with me face to face if they're in the area, or they can order online using a credit card, debit card or pre-paid credit/debit card. Usually they don't reply to that lol. I can send you a copy of my responses, if you'd like.

  • NO NO NO!!! Our district has sent out letters to the reps many times warning of these... Send her an email with your website if you have one, she can place the order there or not at all...
