Hello, My name is Randy Moore from Miami, Florida. I was looking for some artwork online and i found your contact while searching. I will like to purchase some of your work for my wife as a surprise gift for our 20th anniversary. Please kindly send pics and prices of some of your art which are ready for immediate sale within price range $500- $1,500. I hope to hear a lot more about any available piece in your inventory ready for immediate sale.
Thanks and best regards,

Randy.

No not in a long time, but Abbie should be able to take care of it.

They are always shopping for their wives and they will have another person pick up the artwork for them. LOL!

Oh, those do not reply emails happen a lot.

Simply delete it and do not reply and they won't have your email.

not from the inside. its a scam, after all, if they found you here, they know what you sell. and no one really has a range. maybe that guy would be interested in Ed's dead body found in a drainage ditch, seems like a popular item.

Mike - I just read the thread that mentioned the dead body in a drainage ditch. Your response here cracked me up.

I have "Dead Body" all boxed up and waiting on the loading dock. Maybe we can get a bidding war going on it.

You got me. I went to Ed's page looking for the dead body... a skull in the water was as close as I got. lol

Cool image by the way!

that would be fun. you can say, you have another buyer interested, increase the price like 5 times, and ask if he's game.

So is it always a scam if it says "donotreply" because all the messages I have ever gotten from visitors here have said "donotreply" and some of them have actually been from members who I have actively talked to on this forum. I have never gotten a message from visitor that does not say "donotreply"

no. the do not reply is a legacy piece that sean left in there for some reason. it used to always say that, so if you tried to reply, it would bounce. now it goes to the mailer. i can write to you from here, and it will say that. but now if i do that i'll have to think up a story to scam to you.

generally you should reply if they seem legit. i don't know why it still says that do not reply thing.

Okay Mike, that's what I thought! Just wanted to make sure that I wasn't crazy! lol Because all my emails from visitors from here have been that way!

you could be crazy. but that has nothing to do with the email.

or it could just be that they didn't want you to reply...

I just got the same story from a Christopher Benson. I ran a query on his or her email address and it's a scam. I felt like painting an ugly painting and mailing it to him/her that says "F*** You" in big letters but the cost of shipping!
All they have to do is click the contact artist link on the website to reach us.

It says 'do not reply', because if you try to respond by clicking reply, it will go nowhere.
Lots of companies have do not reply messages. They are usually automated announcements.

when you get a legit 'do not reply', simply click on the link provided to respond to the person who wrote.
with obvious scams, such as this, it is best not to encourage them or click on anything.
this is actually a good way for viruses to infect your computer.....sound like a customer and provide an infected link for responses....
oh, did i just give those scam artists a new idea?

I had a similar one.

==================

Thanks for your mail, i am sorry for the late responds its due to my tight business schedule. I am interested in any nice wall art and home decor of any kind. I just recently purchased a family home and i thought it would be nice to have some nice art work frame on the wall.
I understand FAA handles every thing online but i do not have the time to shuffle between an online website so i would personally like to handle every thing manually with you. I do not have any specific art work on my mind but i am a lover of art and any good job you think would befit a leaving room would work great.

Dimensions Sizes inches or color of any art work does not matters to me as long as it falls withing the budget of $1000 for the art work only that will be fine and i will take care of the shipment fees by myself once we have concluded arrangements. Please note that i can only make payment through check which will be drop in the mail for next day delivery once we have concluded on all arrangements.

After confirming your payment and having the funds then i will arrange for pick up.

Dream buyers - they don't care which image it is or what size. And they will arrange for the shipping so you don't even have to leave the house. What's not to love? LOL

This is one I got a few days ago...The "i can only make payment through check", threw up the very large red flag...
