Email Scam!


Someone is pretending to be us and sending scam emails offering gift certificate deals through Amazon. Sorry, we can't give away free money on gift certificates without going out of business. We also don't sell anything through Amazon. Do not buy this! Here is what we know, what the email says, what we were are doing and what you can do.

The Scam Email

The scam email is sent from h00300114@hct.ac.ae using Local Color Flowers as their email name. This is not our email address. It is sent from an account at a school in the UAE. We only send email from our domain: locoflo.com. The subject of the email is: "Celebrate Our Shop Anniversary with Exclusive Gift Card Discounts!". Here is a sample of the the body of the email:


As we celebrate another year of spreading joy and beauty through flowers, we're excited to extend an exclusive gift card promotion to our valued customers.

Unlock substantial savings on Local Color Flowers gift certificates, valid for all our exquisite products both online and in-store. Embrace the floral magic and spread the love with our special Anniversary Offers:

$300 Gift Card for only $100

$800 Gift Card for only $200

Hurry, this offer is available for a limited time only and is exclusively redeemable through Amazon vouchers.

To secure your discounted gift certificate, simply reply to this email, and we'll send you the payment instructions.

Cheers to another year of blooming beauty!

Warm regards,

Local Color Flowers Team

What We Are Doing

We have reported the email scam (multiple times) to Microsoft, Google, FTC, Internet Crime Complaint Center and our email marketing company.

We reported the fake gift certificates to Amazon.

We wrote to the school in the UAE. We assume they are a legitimate organization and are also victim of this scam.

We changed our passwords everywhere!

What You Can Do

Do not buy this fake gift certificate offer on Amazon!

Block emails from h00300114@hct.ac.ae.
