Good Day,

How is everything with you? I picked interest in your artwork and
deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I will like to know if
you have shipped internationally before and if you have a merchant
that enables you to accept Visa Card or Master Card for payment?.
Could you please respond with your recently updated website so we can
proceed from there
Best Regards
Mrs Roosevelt Nunn

Yeah, he got me, too. His "wife" wrote to me, AKA "Mrs. Nunn" pursuing the fake sale. I'm glad you posted this. Thanks.

This person contacted me too - how do you know it is fake? Did you go through with a sale? It certainly does seem sketchy but did you receive a payment - or follow through and to what extent?
thanks

This person also contact a gallery asking similar questions regarding shipping internationally and credit card payments. Googled the email and found this post - Thank you for posting!!
