    I was just contacted via text message for a large catering order with poor grammar and sketchy circumstances. I believe this is similar to the email scams that have been going around for some time. They promised payment in full and said a private van driver would be coming to pick up the order. 

    Please trust your gut, when things seem to good to be true.... they are!!

    Thanks for the heads up. Just respond with "All money must be paid in advance".
