We must have a scam attractor. Now "they" are looking for a two tier cake and 400 cupcakes for the scammer's "son's" birthday. All packaged and ready to be picked up. "Do we take credit cards?" I am writing back to say no, we only accept cash to see what they do. Here is the text of the email, which came from "firstname.lastname@example.org."

I am just curious as to whether there are several spammers out there or if it is the same person (or group) trying over and over. It reminds me of a former boss who used to quote Albert Einstein who once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.
Someone must be falling for it. I am hoping they will soon move on from bakeries to some other industry.
