What a shame! Using the church's name for scamming? Do these people have any conscience at all? Its nice of you to share it with us. This serves as a warning for people who shall receive an email from this certain rev James.

i received the same email today, the same as Boulevard Creations'!

Boulevard Creations

Wow, unbelievable, what will they come up with next?! Thanks so much for the information :)

Marys Cakes

The reverend wants his designated shipper to pick up the goods, but wants to use a credit card or certified check to pay for the cost of the goods plus shipping. Then he asks you to wire the money to the shipper via Western Union. The credit card or certified check are fake and by the time the transaction is reversed (and money taken out of your account) he already has the shipping money, which, since sent via Western Union, is impossible to recover.

I also received a similar email today, curious what the scam is though as I did not respond to the email?
