Beware the scammers!

Just a quick tip, if anybody claiming to be a Reverend Richard (or similar) gets in touch, asking for quotes on leaflets/flyers in quantities of around 90,000+, this is a scam.

Below is a recent enquiry that we received today, one of many similar over the past 12 months…

Dear Sir/Madam

I am Rev Richard and I would like to order some flyers, details below:

PAPER A5 (148X210mm)

Please provide a quote on 100,000 copies, can you also get back to me with your method of payment so that we can proceed with this order, thank you.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards

Rev Richard

Don’t know what the scam is or how it works but if I remember rightly the leaflets/flyers are to be dispatched to Africa in the end. Save yourself some time working out a quote and delete the e-mail.

EDIT: Just received another 🙂


I am Reverend Paul and I would like to know if you can print a flyer 8.5″ x 11″ on a 80 Gloss stock.

What I need on the item is (GIVE A HAND TO THE NEEDY), the background should be in yellow and the writing black.

Let me know the total cost of 60,000 copies and 80,000 copies and also the form of payment you accept.

Please advise

Reverend Paul Johnson
