Painter of thought

Warning: Online Art Scams

I was recently contacted by a person who claimed to have a client interested in purchasing one of my paintings. He implied that he was an art broker. We negotiated price and at first I was excited that someone from London would own one of my paintings. When we got to payment I became suspicious. He said his client would send a cashiers check for the painting, HIS fee and the shipping costs. The shipping was to be handled by the courier branch of his shipping company in the USA.

I did some research and found information on this scam. Here is a link to what I found. Click Here.
