A Random DM ….
So I’m scrolling through TikTok laughing my ass off when I get a *DING* on my phone. I slide down my screen and see it’s a DM on IG from a Random account without a a face on the profile pic so I ignored it . I actually was getting a few notifications from IG because I had posted a selfie on my page . I ain’t gone lie… I WAS CUTE ASF! ☺️
Any who, TikTok got a little redundant so I decided to explore other social media and went back to my Instagram. I went to my notification feed and saw that the same random account had followed me so I followed back and saw what the message was. It was a girl with like 14 followers and 8 pictures of someone wearing dainty jewelry. The Dm state’s that she was a partner with a company called Palmpe and she wanted me to be a brand ambassador for the company. So off rip I get a little excited because I’m trying to get out there in the social media world and any extra exposure of me is helpful for my platform that I’m trying to grow. So I let her know to send details to my email address ( I’m over here tryna be professional and shit 😭).
First Red flag…..
She quickly messaged me back and said that the company didn’t have an email and that this was the best way to contact her.
Me: 😟🤨🤔……. BISH WHAT ?!
What professional company doesn’t have an email?! But anyway I went along with it and told her to send more details . Her thumbs were on X games Mode cause she was messaging me back fast ASF. (I’m so sorry I don’t have screenshots of the messages y’all I blocked and deleted everything once I figured out she was trying to bamboozle me). She told me that she wanted me to be a brand ambassador for the company and that they would pay me 60 dollars to do a review for them. I was instructed to go to their website and pick out three pieces of jewelry that I liked and I could get it for free when I used the “Ambassador code . The only thing I would have to do is pay for shipping to receive everything. So my dumb ass thinking 🤔 “Damn that ain’t bad” 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
So I click on the website and y’all…. they selling these little ass necklaces for 45 dollars! My first thought just by looking at it was that it looked really cheap. It looked like something that you would buy from Claire’s or 5 and Below. While I’m looking at all the jewelry she sending message after message telling me that all of the brand ambassadors go on extravagant trips and that they pay really well . All the perks that she mentioned just sounded too good to be true. My intuition was telling me that she was not legit
So as soon as I saw those prices I began researching on google and the FIRST thing I see is SCAM SCAM SCAM ! 😩😩😩😩 so I’m like ain’t this bouta b*tch ! They tried to get me !
I watched a few videos of women that actually went and paid the shipping and received their jewelry. But check this out y’all they paid 20 PLUS dollars for shipping and were told that they had to pay an extra 500 a MONTH to stay a lifetime member . OH NO MA’AM! I immediately BLOCKED HER ASS!
And that’s the story on how I almost got scammed my a jewelry company. I hoped you enjoyed this extra content. I hope it wasn’t to hard to read and understand.
