WARNING - FRAUD ALERT re: corn.dave@gmail.com

Postby Teknowizard » Sun Oct 14, 2007 5:50 pm

I received a notice today from an artist friend that his email address - corn.dave@gmail.com - is now controlled by Nigerian Fraud Artists and they are trying to scam all of his contacts! Please be aware of this fraud event! If you are contacted from this address, DO NOT RESPOND! Forward it to: scams@fraudwatchinternational.com



I just wanted to let people know here as well in case they start using it to contact other artists or websites. I hope I posted this in the right area (let me know if I didn't Joe).

scams a plenty

the thing that irks me is all these come ons with no phone numbers-they expect you to ship a painting without knowing if the so called gallery even exists.

built a cool shipping case for a painting that almost got sent to South Africa till we figured it was a very complicated scam with a huge come on where they told people they would fly you in to the show they were going to do for you-These bozos should get into politics----forgot most of them are in politics .......

here is a typical L.A. scam you pay 25 bucks per piece to to be juried into a co-op gallery with a snooty come on that says you are useless unless you make the the cut......they do this jury thing 4 times a year-- i did the the math 75 people at say 100 bucks each times 4 times a year ---pays for the rent on the expensive space plus salarys etc.... if accepted you get to be in group shows once a year=tou fight for how many pieces and location.... 200 artists vie for exposure and like the music bizz's pay to play -pay to show is a big Los Angeles crap shoot that keeps artists from banding together to fight the parasites who are nothing more than boiler room criminals... bla bla bla ---
ing a camera and take some pics of these gomers-paint them and be bitter BUT don't quit !!!! well paint dryed -time to stop with the boring rants
