Fraud Alert: Nordstrom DID NOT BUY E.L.F

I’ve received about a dozen or so emails from readers in regards to a spam email stating that Nordstrom bought budget make-up brand E.L.F. (Eyes, Lips, Face).

    im glad cause lord knows nordstrom would love uppin the price on the lovely e.l.f. price and i jus found out about this brand and i love it n tell everybody about it u cant beat that $1 goldmine lol!!!


    I received a forward e-mail with subj. “Nordstrom make-up $1.00, pass it on …” Like a kid in a candy store, gleefully I started to click on one product after another. Right before finalizing my order, my thinking cap managed to find me after a long absence.  So I googled Nordstrom’s website and contacted the fraud alert hotline.  Voila! The operator informed me that this online fraud has been circulated on the internet since 2008.  Obviously, it is another fraud. 

    The old saying goes: “If it is too good to be true…”

    Sorry to disappoint you.
