Bogus Email Alert

Thanks to someone, who also sells on eBay, for alerting me to a low-life that's emailing some of you folks about my paintings. It's from either david2521atgmaildotcom OR wiunsedatgmaildotcom. This crook is asking if you'd like to accept a Second Chance Offer. Do not respond and please forward that email to There's dirtbags out there, my friends, just stay on top of them.

What is it they are up to? I am not familiar with the tricks being played these days. I'll help anyway I can.

Hi Karen,
If you choose to, you can keep your bidders anonymous, then this person won't be able to do this. It is really sad when it comes to this. I love your work.

Karen, I am sorry to hear about these dirtbags. Too many of them out there these days. I love your art, and wish you much success..

This is so sad, please don't make your bidders anonymous, often I look at what your buyers have bought elsewhere and have then bought from those sellers.

I'd say never take a second chance offer from anyone but the original seller, and only through e-bay. There was a story on the news who got an offer after she bid on a wedding dress, she payed through pay pal, but didn't go through e-bay, and she lost a lot of money.

Karin, This just isn't fair. I think you mean "", at least that is where I have had to report a 'phishing' scam a couple of times before.

I agree with "art undressed" - other bidders have introduced me to other artists, such as yourself.
