I got the lowdown on this scam in my place this year from the feds. What happens is there is a man traveling abroad and he gets killed by some middle eastern bad guys. They steal his cash and credit cards. Usually they will make a call to a restaurant via operator liaison. With us it was that the son of the birthday person was in the hospital having throat surgery and not able to speak. They asked us to make 100 Caesar salads on a credit card and a carrier would come and pick up the food. They also asked for extra cash (as a secured check) to be put on the card and mailed to a specific location so they could pay the band that would play at their event. This would have been a $1,200 hit for us. Then just before the event they call and ask for more food to be made. This brings it to $1,600.
They have no desire for the food. They want the check so they can support their jihad. This is a terrorist scam to raise funds to purchase arms, bombs and whatnot to be used against us. REALLY, I'm not kidding here.
