I would like to share a scam that happened to me this week and
alert other artists.

I was contacted via e-mail through my website about a woman
who claimed to live in Australia and who fell in love with my work,
wanted to buy 3 large pieces that needed to be shipped to her.

She would give me her credit card and wanted me to charge the
shipping cost that was calculated ahead on top of the prices
of the paintings...then she asked for the favor!!!....

she wanted me to send Western Union a wire in the amount
of the shipping cost since they were not set up to accept credit
cards....all bells started to ring....
I have not heard back from her when I told her I was not about to
do this, expect this is it.
