Art Scam Alert!

Ignore this dirtbag... I will take care of him in my own way; see below - all the grammatical errors are his:

Date: Mon, 27 Feb 2012 13:21:12 -0800
Subject: i am interested in your artwork


It was great reading and seeing your ads artwork on i would like to make a purchase as i'm really interested in it.

Let me know the last price and if it still available for sale and it's present condition let me know if you are the real owner, and send me pics as for the Shipping i will take care of that through a pick up.

Hope to hear from you

I got the same exact message several days ago. I wonder what they get from emailing us? I don't get it.

It is an elaborate scam that leads to them trying to transfer money back and forth in a way that rips you off in the end. I almost fell for a more articulate one a few months ago--even went as far as to cite the paintings they wanted. :P
