Beware of Fraud: Web Design Scam

Written by 

I recently received an email that is referenced in this forum thread.  I was going to post my response on this other site but it tried to get me to sign up for a premium plan in order to post a response.  Instead, I am posting it here:


Hi Nate,

I have a small clothing business for both male and female, now am trying to expand the business and i want you to build an informational website for it for advertisement and to increase my sales rate.

I need you to checkout this site but i need something more perfect than this if possible,http://www.missrebel.co.uk.

The  site would only be informational, so i need you to get back to me with an estimate for the web design, the estimate should include hosting and i want the site to have not more than 8 pages since it is informational.i have a private project graphic designer,he has the text content, images and the logos for the site.

Note:
1. I want only English language
2. I don't have a domain yet but i want the domain name as bwwears.com or bbwears.co
3.You will be updating the site for me.
4. I will be proving the images,logos and content for the site.
5. I want the site up and running before ending of March.
6. My budget is $2000 to $8000 Kindly get back to me with:
(1) an estimate
(2) I will like to know if you are the owner ?
(3) I will like you to get back to me with your cell phone number

Thanks,
Bob ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )


He later emailed me addressing me "Brian" which raised some suspicions.  I googled his email address and found the above-linked "Team Tree House" forum post.  Hopefully this post is helpful to someone...
