Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I don't know if any of you have encountered this email, but apparently it is being sent out to artists:
I am Page Jocelyn, i came across your items on the advert website and became interested in ordering from you.
i will like to inquire on the items you have for sale because i will be buying it for my new apartment.
I will like to see different pictures of the types of Items available and my method of payment is by Bank Cheque.
Hope to hear back from you soon.
After several emails back & forth my husband made it clear to her that we have a website that she can look at and choose the art that she would like to purchase. She decided on a painting and agreed to the price. We gave her the address that she should mail the payment to, and she said that she would. Then today we received an email from her saying that her financial administrator had sent us a check that was meant for someone else, by mistake, but that we shouldn't destroy it or send it back but deposit it. This put up a red flag for us, so we "googled" her name and a dialog came up indicating that there are several other aliases used for the same scheme. If you deposit the check, they would have your bank information. Of course we will not deposit it (if and when we receive it), but just wanted to know if anyone else has had this experience.
