July Publisher’s Letter

by Neil Agate MHC President (first published in the July 2020 Equiery) Transitions I feel that saying we are living in extraordinary times is getting quite old, but the last month has proven that once again. When we went to press 30 days ago on the June edition of The Equiery we were starting to come out of the COVID-19 lockdown and there were glimpses of normalcy on the horizon for the Maryland horse community. Barns and trails started to open up and we were working with the horse show...

If someone offers to pay your stable more for lessons than you charge, but asks you to pay the difference to someone else, don't do it, it's a scam. ... See MoreSee Less

I got an email saying that about overpaying and send it to their pastor and I told them I don't do business like that. Never heard back. Also getting several board my horse for 5 months while I go on vacation. I tell them to call, and they don't. The broken English is a dead giveaway. Dear madam. I wish you a good day. Yours truly etc.

I've had same message many times over the years

I had someone email me about lessons, claiming they would send their sons with a driver. They wanted to pay by credit card. Since I don't do CC, I sent them on their way, but it was obviously a scam anyway. No legitimate client goes into such a song and dance about having a driver.

We had a series of emails about that about a year or two ago.

Been getting recent texts like this! They will have an actual conversation with you first, seemed like a legit client looking. Then pay by credit card, kids coming with a driver, etc. several “how was your rest last night” texts, had one not give up after I said I knew it was a scam and was not interested in discussing further, had to block the number.

Brian Ricketts sound familiar?
