Warning!! Scammers Trying To Buy Original Art...via: Email Through Faa

We recieved an email request to purchase a painting. The buyer claimed to be purchasing the art for a client and the piece would be shipped to Belgium for a family reunion. Most of our inquiries concering details were unanswered, and the buyer insisted that they pay with a check and use their shipper. We recieved a check in the mail and were instructed to deduct our fee and wire the rest to the shipper via Western Union. We took the check to our bank whereby they informed us that the check was a forgery. They are conducting an investigation. We sent an email to the mysteyr buyer informing them of this and have not recieved a response.

An online scam from Belgium instead of Nigeria? Weird. I'm from Belgium but don't blame me!

Nigerian emails are generally about finding "lost" relatives to claim their share of an imaginary inheritance. The "cash our check and send us the difference" ones are from all over. Another poster got one from Florida. I got one that appeared to be from Colorado.

There are some coming out of Canada that "announce" winning the "Canadian lottery". For those, they'll say you won, but first you have to pay the tax to claim the winnings.
