Scam Email: Abigail Spencer

Hi Kathleen,

I haven't received an email like this before and was getting red flags from the beginning, but replied anyways. Now am pretty confident from reading the info you have on your site that this is indeed a scam. 

The address isn't coming up legit as written here (although misspelled) and all this asap stuff sounds really hokey to me.  Thanks for getting the word out on spam info.  I really appreciate it!

Subject: Re: Artwork Inquiry

I am okay with the cost of these three therefore i want you to get them packed

A View to the North Shore is also available for $2300
House on a Hill  is available for $800
The Stadium is available for $1800

On the shipping one will have to pay additional fee at the delivery point here in Guernsey  because they will never bring to ones house. courier like Fedex, UPS are not worth it here especially USPS all of them are not rendering good service here probably because they already known very well. You can contact this courier Drone Logistic ( as well with the weight and cost of the artwork for the shipping and insurance to my address because they ship and deliver safely without one paying any other money before collecting the goods unlike some other courier where it will not be delivered to your address rather you will have to go to their office to pick it up and when you get there you will be told to pay other money before collecting it.

I will be looking forward to hearing from you asap.

Shipping Address
15 The Monic St. Peter Port, GY1 2PX
Channel Islands Guernsey


  1. i think i am now a victim...i just googled the address they told me to send and your blog came up nothing more. and i searched the name they used and they don't exist....pretty funny how bad the email was written which was a big red flag. anyway still on the hunt...pretty funny stuff !

  2. The good news is that if you have not sent them any money, you are NOT a victim, and that is why I do this blog and my facebook page on scams - catching people BEFORE they send the money.

    So glad you knew to google things first and find out the truth.

  3. Kathleen,
    Here is another one. Used the email


    I am emailing to inquire about availability of artwork for sale in your gallery, if you can ship international and also if you are able to process Electronically Visa and Master Card Number/Expiry date/Cvv as payment. Let me know so that i can communicate with you on the artworks that interest me,you can also indicate to me which of the arts are sold and which are available on your website.

    I will be looking forward to reading from you.
