Scam alert

Sorry to bug any readers with this, but I was just notified of this scam. If you should receive anything like this, just delete it.

Current Internet Scam Uses Amway Name

Emails from Amway Children Charity Foundation fraudulent.

Quixtar is strongly encouraging all IBOs to be aware that there is a currently circulating Internet scam that is using the Amway name in an effort to appear valid. As part of this scam, people may receive unsolicited emails from a group billed as the "Amway Children Charity Foundation."

The Amway Children Charity Foundation is not an Amway-sanctioned program. The name, program, and people mentioned in the emails are in no way related to Amway, and do not have Amway's authority or support in their endeavours. We would ask that you share this information with your friends, family, and associates. In addition, should you receive an email from this group, we would encourage you to delete it immediately and under no circumstances reply to it.

This scam has circulated throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. In an attempt to minimize the potential damage that this scam may cause, the Corporation has issued a press release throughout the North American media network and has advised the Better Business Bureau. We are also currently working with authorities to investigate the origin of the scam.
