In response to: Kristine

This guy is texting massage therapists saying he has an event for 8 people and asks if you do Swedish massage and accept credit card. He'll give his email which is richardcares90@gmail.com.

I found his name under several other numbers and he's tried this is California, Illinois, Kentucky, Philadelphia, etc.
People were talking to him even longer accepted he's trying to pay you accepted extreme amount of money to take care of a family event, and wants you to massage them a couple per day. He claims a driver will drop them off but his driver does not have access to a credit card so he wants to pay you and have the driver get paid by you.

Everyone please be careful. It sounds simple that it's too good to be true, but some people may fall for it. Let's keep reporting him so hopefully this stops. It looks like he's tried this for a couple years, so he must have had this work for him at some point.

I also have been contacted via txt from Lamar.... I am a Massage Therapist, and its the 2nd time he contacted me. He asks if uou do Swedish Massage and take credit cards, then says he has an event coming up and gives a date. Says he has 12 people that need massages and has a driver that will bring two per day. The first time he contacted me I actually was going to schedule them until I happened to research the number and started seeing the same complaints Please be aware this is a scam

Got a message from this dude this morning, said he found me on massagebook and had 8 people coming in the week of the 24-31 of March. The story matches what everyone else writing on here about him. Too good to be true

Recieved a text today saying "this is Lamar, do you do Swedish massage and do you accept credit cards". I googled the number before responding and came across these reports.

I received the same message the other day. It sounded very fishy with the wording of the text. I fished for more information and he was not very froth coming just the same information over and over. I sent back a message that I could not accommodate his request and to contact someone else.

Yeah I just got hit by this guy too. I'm in Columbia SC and he got me through Massage Book as well.
It was believable until he told me his driver didn't have credit card acceptance and I needed to agree to pay his driver with money he'd send me.
What should've tipped me off was when he said that he needed the services between 26-31 of April. There's only 30 days in April! So glad I google the number her texted from.

I just received a text from this number asking if I could accommodate 8 people on the 24th of March..."with the party planning driver will bring 2ppl or more per day."

He says he got my name from a site that I am not on...which is even scarier. For the first time in 13 years of practice I feel unsafe! :(

I'm a massage therapist and was contacted on my work number by Lamar on July 9, 2018. He was looking for massage appointments for 8 people between 7/19 and 7/28. A driver would be bringing them 2 to 4 people a day.

He wanted my full name and address to provide to the driver. he also asked me to add $1350 to the bill to cover his driver so that all of the charges were on his credit card and that I was to add $100 tip for myself and then send the $1350 to his driver's bank account.

I, of course, didn't agree to the transaction. Please be aware. He seems to be targeting massage therapists.

I'm located in Wisconsin.

I received the exact same message as others have. After reading this, I didn't respond, so I don't know if he's still using the same story.

By a hunch, I thought Id look up this number on Facebook, and sure enough, he is asking me the same questions and info that I see has not only been requested. I have a really creepy feeling about this guy, as I am sure as most everyone on here has. Be warned. CREEPY!!!!

Just got the same text as everyone else. Seemed possibly legit until he asked for a "favor" before giving me his credit card info. What professional driver wouldn't have a credit card reader?!?!

Has tried this scam with me twice now. He's getting info from MassageBook. Not sure how many use this scheduling app but I do. Screen shots of other complaints sent and he doesn't respond.
