Scam Email: Alexander Trowell

  1. Kathleen,

    Thanks for keeping a list of scammers. Not sure how to find the IP address on this, but feel free to add this one to the list!

    2 of my artist friends received the same email as well.

    A lil Bummed, but grateful I followed my gut on this one.
