I haven’t been receiving any of them annoying email scams from people in Nigeria, China, or Russia looking to buy art lately, but they’re obviously still out there.
Proxima has left a comment here, asking what to do. He has received a check (cheque) for the work, it’s more than they agreed on, he can’t contact the buyer, and now he’s thinking of cashing it.
My advice would be to just throw it away (I’m guessing that he didn’t send the painting yet). But I’ve never had any experience with them, apart from deleting their emails, so I can’t really say I know much about it all.
Has anybody dealt with these people?
Here’s Proxima’s comment..
I received a check
Yes, it’s more than we are agreed upon
Yes, the address is the same
Question: Is there any others that received a check and if the answer is yes, what happened after that – can I try to take cash or what? I am still thinking, and am trying to contact her but she has not answered me…what do you think ?
