SQUARE SCAM: I got an email this morning about a Square disputed sale and "they" had contacted "my bank" . I don't use square and return email, was fishy. Beware.

  • Always a good tip, Richard. 

    This isn't a square scam, but it is one of those old ones I just received "moving out of the country and want to surprise my wife"

    Re: Artwork Needed

    Thanks for the message,  I must tell you I intend to give my wife a surprise with the immediate purchase of the piece. Also If you'd like to know, I'm relocating to the Philippines soon and our wedding anniversary is fast approaching. So I'm trying to gather some good stuff to make this event a surprise one. I am buying Palette Peonies  90 s/n - 16" x 24" $725 as a gift to her. I'm okay with the price, I think it's worth it anyway, so I'll be sending a check.. As regarding shipping, you don't have to worry about that in order not to leave any clue to my wife for the surprise. As soon as you receive and cash the check, my shipping agent (who is also moving my personal effects) will contact you to arrange  pick-up.

  • I get a lot of those. Also similar ones from PayPal, and Amazon, and from banks with which I have no accounts. Easy way to spot scams-- check the sender email address (open up "details"). Big businesses generally don't have g-mail accounts, nor work out of school offices (.edu emails). Forward it as a "spoof" report to the purported sender: spoof @ squareup.com, etc.
