Paul FowlerWedding party needing hair and makeup
This “father of the bride” wants to know if you can do hair and make up for his daughter and eight bridesmaids or something like that. Then he contacts you and wants to pay you upfront with his credit card, but says he is in the hospital with some type of element where he can’t talk.
Then he wants to pay with a credit card, but asks for a favor. The favor will lead to you over charging the credit card and him wanting you to wire the money to him so he can pay for say, a private driver for the bridesmaids, while he is in the hospital.
This is when you realize the credit card is stolen and the charges will be reversed and you will be responsible for the money. This correspondence is all through text and email, and the caller has a google voice number Paul +1 (657) 464-3659 Huntington Beach, CA.

Wants bartending services for his mother’s birthday. Will send me $$ with an overpayment for event planner. Total scam worded almost word for word to the examples given here. Total LOSER
Great, I will need you to do me a favor regarding the Event Planner that will handle every about the event. I’m yet to pay them, because they are small companies and do not have credit card facilities. So I’d need you to charge my card for your service and an extra sum that covers the (Event Planner ), with a tip of $120 for you helping me with this favor. I will be liable for the 3% CC company tax. So you can help me to coordinate the Event Planner to him through (DEPOSIT or TRANSFER) I want you to understand that I would wait till my credit card funds clear into your bank account before you proceed to send the Event Planner funds and I hope it probably takes 2/3 days for the charges to clear into your bank account. The Event Planner total charge is $2,580.65. Which includes Food, Cake, Drinks, Chairs, Dj Service etc. I’d be more than happy if you can help me with this favor… So here is the breakdown below:
Event Planner: $2,580.65
Tips Of Helping: $120
3% CC Charges: $152
Kindly add it all together now and get back to me with the total cost plus event planner, so I can give you my credit card to charge for the full payment… Do that now while I hold?
This is what he sent me. Please be aware! It’s 11/20/20 he’s been doing this over a year. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this happen to me. They use different names.
Video services for family reunion
Similar scam for family reunion video services. He changed the date from Nov 2019 to Jan 2018.
“The essential reason for contacting you. I want you to book 18th January 2018 and I want you to work on the estimate cost for the 5 hours service from 1:00 pm-6:00 pm, we have 6 families coming together for the reunion event. The event will be held locally here in STATE about 30-40 mins drive from your location, I will cover the travel expenses. I will be making 60% down payment in advance with my credit card to book the date because the date is fast approaching. My budget is $2,000 to $4,000 and quote will be appreciated?
