I imagine you replied because you were insulted that she would think artists so stupid.
Merci Céleste pour l'information...Les escrocs sont toujours à l'affût de nouvelles proies...Merci également pour votre gentil commentaire.A bientôt
thanks for the heads up -- i agree with the nonresponse policy however this seems to be an especially ridiculous (and deserving of a reality check response) !
It is pervasive,not just in the arts.I use VactionRentalByOwner(VRBO) to rent our cottage and we got a very convincing request this weekend. I see that the grammar was not quite correct in yours, as it was not quite right in mine either!
Well done Celeste, you did what had to be done.. thank you for letting us know.
I've received a few of those myself and know someone who actually thought it was legit...at least for a while. Fortunately, she caught on before it cost her any of her work.My mail program allows me to bounce messages back to the sender...that stops them in their tracks.You would think these spammers would grow tired of this. Thanks for promoting awareness.~ Kathleen Krucoff
That "bad karma" curse should work.
I hope she believe in bad karma!
I blogged about it in 2009 too:http://celestebergin.blogspot.com/2009/05/beware-art-scam.html
Dear Celeste, Thank you for the important information. I got a similar spam message to the blog just a day ago. But I soon realized it has "no-reply" address. It pretended a publicly recognized job position(showing it on facebook) and asked me to sell and illustrate her work. Anyway, thank you so much!Cheers, Sadami
thank you for the info.Printed it to keep reminding me that not everyone has our best interest at heart!!!Annie v.
