   Like most artists, I try to stay aware of the latest "people" who try to scam us. Today thanks to "The Art News Blog" I have the latest "person" to share with you. Nicole Danes is currently targeting artists with the following e-mail.

Let me know their various prices.and how much discounts are you going to give?I will be happy to have these selected artworks hanged in our new home in South Africa. As well, I want you to take out the shipping cost.I have been in touch with a shipping firm that will be shipping other house decoratives.

We are traveling from our Dallas home to our new apartment as soon as possible.On Paying for the artworks,I will be glad to pay you with a Money Order or Cashier`s check in US funds that can be easily cashed at your local bank,please let me know on how to proceed for the payment of the creative artworks.

I will await your advise on how to proceed.Have a wonderful day.

Take care,

  The dead giveaways as always are, bad English, not being concerned with the exact price of the artwork, and wanting to use a cashiers check. As a further service to everyone I am going to leave you with a list of well known "people" (again thanks to"The Art News Blog"), that have been known to try to scam artists.

seemed to be the same pattern, if not the same person (though from craigslist). Just received this in the mail.

I appreciate your response to inquiry.Am interested in buying your furniture. I would have loved to come check it out myself but I just got married and am presently on honeymoon to Hawaii with my wife.
I would love some surprise inclusions of furniture in our home on our return.Please do withdraw the advert from craigslist as I wouldn't mind adding $50 for you to do that, so I can be assured that the furniture item is held for me. I have no doubt that it is in good condition as stated in the ad. I will be making the payment via a Certified Check,
which my secretary will mail across to you.I'll be picking the item from you with the aid of a mover. My Mover
will be coming to pick it from you once the Certified Check has been
cashed. Please I will need both your full name and physical address
along with your phone number for payment to be facilitated.
