A new scam is going around, apparently a version of the Nigerian scams that are so prevalent. In this instance, someone in another country, usually the U.K. or Europe, contacts an event planner in the U.S. They say they are planning an event in the U.S. and need to hire the planner. Of course, the event isn’t being held anywhere near where the planner lives, so there is no opportunity to ask for a personal meeting. The planner will have to travel to the site of the event – all expenses paid.
