That address in RI is a flooring company and a body shop. Looks like apts above. (2 story frame building) The latest buying offer is from "morris white" also at that address...must be getting pretty crowded up there with all those folks collecting art...:-) The phone# he furnished is a land line in Seattle, unpublished. The pidgen english is, as always, a dead giveaway.

Anybody who doesn't take the time to reread the email they send out to check for errors in spelling, grammar or typing is not a trustworthy source. That should be a dead giveaway to spot any fraud attempts. Any reputible dealer or business has secretaries or at least software that catches errors before they are sent out . Also, poor english translations are no excuse either as they have software that corrects the translations too. Number 1 rule whenever sorting through email for legitimacy- never trust broken english emails, along with poor typing and spelling.
