Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Hi Everyone,

I received an email this morning from a woman in Santorini, Cyclades Islands by the name of Karen Fischer.  The body of the letter is as follows:

I have been waiting and still haven't receive a response from you. I sent you a message inquiring about your works but yet to receive a response.

Could you advise back if you ship to Cyclades Islands and In regards to payment, Do you accept either Paypal or Master card ?

Will await your timely response.

Sincerely.

I very much suspect a scam here for several reasons:  There was no mention of any particular piece she wanted to buy; no request for prices (these always come before the request to purchase); and I did not receive the previous email she mentions (it could have gone into spam and I deleted it the first time).

So, I'm just wondering if anyone out there has had a similar email from this woman or someone in the same geographic area.

Thanks!

It's always a scam. Then they overpay you and expect you to give them money back but then the credit card bounces because it was stolen overseas and or the paypal deposit was phony.

We get these types of emails all the time. Every one is deleted.
