ART SCAM ALERT – His Wife Loves Your Work But Don’t Let It Fool You

A few of our artists have reported having received an email containing this message:

Greetings!

My name is john glenn from SC. I actually observed my wife has

been viewing your website on my laptop and i guess she likes your

piece of work, I’m also impressed and amazed to have seen your various

works too, : )  You are doing a great job. I would like to receive

further information about your piece of work and what inspires you. I

am very much interested in the purchase of the piece (in subject field

above) to surprise my wife. Kindly confirm the availability for

immediate sales.

Thanks and best regards,

john.

Just like any scam: if it sounds way too good to be true, sadly, it’s not.  Not to mention, a proper grammar check could have gone a long way!
