Okay, someone is obviously messing with me. I just got 2 phone calls from a woman. TWO.

I have never met her. She lives in Alabama. I don't know anyone who lives in Alabama.

This woman claims she saw a woman in church in Mobile where she lives that was wearing a gorgeous necklace. A necklace that I made. The woman told her how to find me on the internet AND when the woman said she didn't have a computer (which I totally wouldn't believe except she sounded quite a bit older) the woman gave her my name and phone number. My name and PHONE. NUMBER. This tends to make me think I must know this person OUTSIDE of this box I am typing into.

The woman who called said she didn't know the other woman's name but she was from Daphne, Alabama. Again, I. DON'T. KNOW. ANYONE. IN. ALABAMA. So, which one of you moved and didn't tell me?

Anyway, she went on to describe the necklace. I have no recollection of it. It does not mean I didn't make it. I haven't made any real jewelry in about a year and a half. Maybe longer. Two years?

I looked at some of my beads and it is possible I made what she described considering what I still own.

So help a girl out. Do I know someone from Alabama? Did I send you a necklace? Did you move and not tell me? Is this some scam?

She wanted me to send her a catalog of my jewelry. I DON'T HAVE A CATALOG. Excuse my yelling. This seems to be stressing me out a bit. She gave me her phone number, name and address so I could send her some photos of my work. She wants a necklace just like the one this other woman was wearing.

SHE CALLED ME FROM ALABAMA. Let me repeat... the woman she spoke to gave her MY NAME AND PHONE NUMBER.

Any suggestions?
