ART SCAM

It seems that Ms.Nicole Roane whose email address is nic_ane01@yahoo.com
has also gone by the name "Lisa Benson" using this email lisaben100@googlemail.com
The email was identical to the one I found here.
So no sale, but I'm glad I found out before I got sucked in any further.
I wish there was some way I could burn this BOZO! & get him or her caught!
The up side to this is I get to keep 2 of my favorite pieces :~)
& life never gets dull!
I have logged a complaint with Internet Crime.

You are so lucky to have been warned! (I wasn't even aware that there were these types of scams going on.) Yet another sad eye opening experience...

You sure do attract the low-life! From the scammers on ebay to this! Wow! What an exciting life!!
I'm glad those pieces didn't sell. They're like members of the family!!
It must be a fabulous feeling to know your art is worthy of stealing!!! Love Ewe!
(This is a version of the money order scam Marcy was involved in.)

I love those quilts, I'm so glad you found out in time. It's hard to believe how people come up with all these scams. The quilting on your tree of life is inspirational!

I am so glad you caught this in time. What a horrible rotton person this is.Its a good thing for you to do by posting though so that we all can be aware.

The scammers are targeting all sorts of special interests - a friend who advertised puppies on the Alaska Craigslist got one of those - same type of thing with the overpayment. Always have to be wary - the overpayment and the cartage money is always the tip off!
