Thanks for the blog on art scams. Stealing from self-employed artists is about as low as you can sink.
Here is a follow up story, which might amuse you, a letter to me from someone on your list of scammers.
First, some context: I am a biologist, not an artist. But my web site mentions I had an endowed professorship (*Chair* of environmental studies) and that I published a book chapter on *alligators* in wetlands.
A message arrived from Richard Aaron Graham, asking about unit price and lead time to purchase an "alligato chair".
