HI Everyone~ I wanted to post this warning to all~ I used to work on thwarting scammers from other websites and here this one that I have pasted below, just came through my artwanted comments/mail! Letter like this are ALWAYS fake!!! At best they will send you counterfeit checks or money orders and then try to bully you into cashing them and sending them money back via Western Union! I know people who fell for it and their bank accounts went overdrawn- once money goes out via wire transfers you are responsible to pay the back back~! Anyway, this is the first scammer that has sought me on on ArtWanted so I am posting it so you can be aware so you dont fall prey,... :) Ave
