Guinness World Record attempt email

Hey

Has anyone else had an email from a Victoria Nicholls of Mother Events for 'the most people being massaged' guiness world record attempt?

I've had an email about this with an attempt to break a world record supposedly Friday 2nd March next year. The second emails states that only 300 therapists will be needed and you need to pay a £50 sign up.

This rang alarm bells with me...... I've been caught by a scam in the past so wondered if anyone had, had similar.

How strange!!! I had a similar idea for a charity event with all money raised donated to a local charity.
The only difference is that the therapists would not be asked to pay for anything but just give their time.
I am trying to find a suitable venue willing to let us use it for free in North Kent or South East London.
I do not see why somebody should pay for this, and quite a lot of money too.
Be aware.

Hi Camilla,

No, I've not been contacted. Thanks for alerting us. Seems like a scam to me. I'll stay more alert now.

I know thats what I thought... very strange to request money. when I have done similar events it has been free because they are asking for MY HELP AND MY TIME.

I think I will avoid it!!!
