Lisa,

Thanks for the heads up. I have been spotting these goons for a long time on the internet in other, non-art areas. It would be wonderful to meet them in person!. My first tip off to these types of scams is usually the very poor english and out of context verbal content, easy to pick up because the way they write ( or speak ) sounds strange to an American pair of ears.

Yeah, gettin old has it's advantages once in a while!!

I got a very similar email from someone "offering" to buy my book... and they even said up front they'd overpay me and then I could just send them a refund.

Yeah, sure. Needless to say, I just deleted it.

Hi,

thanks for the post. I received exactly the same email- which I pasted into google, and led me here. You saved me a real head-ache!

Cheers,

Will

  • "I was just handed the most incredible magazine article that I think has ever been written about me. It is just fantastic and people are presenting me with copies of the magazine. Really beautifully written, really beautifully written and no one has ever put all the pieces together as nicely as you have. Thank you so much."

  • "I found Lisa Mikulski to be just the right resource at the right time: focused, professional, with a great eye for color and design, and with very fast turnaround time for getting images up on the web -- an artist's best friend and there when you need her! She's got a really good command of the two worlds we as artists now inhabit: the technical issues of cyberspace in today's market, combined with bottom line issues of artistic judgement. I highly recommend her as a great resource for web design, artistic and gallery management."
