Reply-To: Steven Leavitt [stevleavitt@yahoo.com]

Dear Jennifer,

Thanks for the message, Hope  you are doing  great. I actually observed my wife has been viewing your website (artwork) on my laptop and i guess she likes your artwork, Also I must tell you I am very much interested in the immediate purchase of that artwork to surprise my wife. Unfortunately, at the moment I am on training voyage with new hires, fresh from graduate school, I would have come to purchase the piece personally but won't be back for another couple of weeks, as I am a civil marine engineer and due to the nature of my work, visiting of website, phone calls are restricted during this period, but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding it:-). . Kindly email me the asking price asap.

If you'd like to know, I'm relocating to the Philippines soon and I'm also trying to gather some good stuff to furnish my new abode. I am buying yours (quickly before someone else grabs it) So, I'll arrange to send you payment ASAP.

However, you don't have to worry about shipment, I be appointing a secured shipping agent in Philippines whom are also moving my 1932 Ford ROADSTER and some personal effect to come over for the pickup of the painting at your place,and then deliver it to my new abode (Philippines); Courier service like FedEx, UPS are not worth it in the Philippines especially USPS all of them are not rendering good service there in the Philippines, they will never bring to ones house. I have had several bad experience with FedEx and UPS in the past and am not willing to pay additional fee at the delivery point in Philippines  because the appointed shipper will deliver safely without 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.

Thanks and God bless,
Steve Leavitt.

PS:In the meantime, you could forward me your full name (you want the check payable to) cell phone no. and contact address so I can fedex a check to. as I MIGHT be delayed depending on how things goes.

  7. I just got the same email from "Steve Leavitt" using the exact wording in this post. Glad I'm skeptical and Googled and found this blog. Thanks for this service.

  8. I received this email this week as well. Seemed like a scam, but I couldn't figure out the angle. I figured as long as I didnt do anything until the check cleared, I'd be safe. I guess he's relying on people paying the "shippers" before the check clears? Anyways, glad I found this website.

  9. I just received the same damn email. Ugh. Frustrating! But thank you SO much for posting this- I wanted to research the buyer prior to sending personal information. Now I know...

    THANK YOU!!!!!!

    Thanks!

  11. I got contacted by Steve Leavitt through my web site. His reply to my reply was basically the same message as the one above. Didn't sound right, so I googled him and now I'm here and feeling a little stupid that I didn't do some checking in the beginning.

  18. Thank you SO much! I got the same email from this piece of trash. I'm glad I googled it.

  19. Hey, I got the same thing back on August 7th. I'm a painter and these same types of emails pop up from time to time. I knew right away it was a scam and called the FBI in Phoenix.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just got the same thing. What an idiot. I'm going to keep emailing and play along for a little while (without giving away any personal info of course).

    ReplyDelete
  21. thanks for the site. it helped stop the scam.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for the posting. Almost fell for it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm glad I checked. Damn, I was so excited. I haven't gotten a second one yet, but he gave me the line that his wife loves it. I'm going to email him and give him a piece of my mind. Thanks for warning me. (Bubble burst)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Got this email this morning. I usually Google art inquiries and glad I did this time before getting my hopes up. Thanks for the alert!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I received this last week. So sad that this happens to artists (or anyone). I was happy to finally get another client, but turned out to be a scam! Thanks for the info!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks for this, I just received the email too. Thanks for the heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I got the same email today and it sounded fishy to me too, as if artists aren't ripped off enough. I told him the painting wasn't for sale.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I received a similar email today as well. I posted it below. Thanks for all of your posts.

    Good day, hope you are good.
    I actually observed my wife has been viewing your website (artwork in subject field above) on my laptop and i guess she likes that artwork, I must also say you are doing a great job. I would like to know what inspired that artwork.

  29. Just got this guy and the same email today. Guess they are still trying to scam artists.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hello,
    I guess I let my desire for selling art get the best of me. I took it all the way to giving him my number: He said he was sending a check right away and I just need to pay something to the shipping agent. I said no problem : send the amount you owe plus what I pay to the shipper and when it clears I will be glad to pay the shipper. I gave him info like my cell, and address but anyone can look up my address can and I don't answer unidentified calls. Rats. I wanted it to be true. Alas! I weep for my impoversihed artist's life.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just received this same email also. I was VERY skeptical. Lucky the piece was actually not available, as I gave it to a family member as a gift. He just wrote back today to say he was disappointed but to send him other images/paintings that would be available! SO glad I found this site to confirm that it IS in fact a scam. Unbelievable!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Although I have had people buy my work via e-mail, I recognized this as a scam and fortunately found this blog. What I wouldn't give to get my hands on people like this Mr. Leavitt.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This guy is very active. Heard from him today, recognized the routine as fraud. Glad I found this site to confirm my doubts,

    ReplyDelete
  34. I received the first e-mail today, and decided to google his name before responding. As someone said earlier, something about the wording sounded strange. Anyway, thanks for the blog, or I might have fallen for it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just got this email today but Firefox had recognized it as spam.
    Too good to be true but sounded really phony.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My husband just got the same email, so glad I googled his name and found your post. Is there anything that we can do to get law enforcement involved in dealing with someone like this?

    ReplyDelete
  37. What if you where to fall for it and gave details like name, phone and address??

    ReplyDelete
  38. The scammer will send an overpayment with a counterfeit check and try to rush the victim to forward the overpayment to their "shipper" via wire transfer, before the victim discovers the original check is fake. So the victim is then out the money they have forwarded which can be thousands of dollars.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I encourage all of you to report this scam to a website which will direct it to the proper agency, like the FBI.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, we have several links for you to report these, but unless there is actual financial loss (and even then it is not like they are going to get that back for you), most agencies don't know what to do with the complaints. But it's still good to submit them because I think how else are they going to know the patterns of scammer activity.

    But of course, my hope is that people do NOT get to the point of losing any money, and that is why I started this blog and the related facebook page. so we can all help warn each other before anything bad can happen.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Same crap yup;, so I said, Im not Your Banker,I dont take third party checks,I take cash,& US postal Money orders..Your check will be sent TO the postal inspector for mail fraud, Have a nice life in club Fed.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Just got this myself on Saturday Aug 21 and thanks to an organization I belong to I was alerted to the fraud before I responded. What a jerk!

    ReplyDelete
  43. There are too many grammar errors for this to be from a native English speaker. The language does not 'flow' but has a chopped sound of someone who has learned English yet lacks fluency and then used a translation program to stitch it together. Word choice is off, "...moment I am on training voyage with new hires..." Hopefully no one falls for it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes, I heard from Mr. Leavitt yesterday. My gallery, I am glad to say, knows all about him. Hustling artists is such a sad crime.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I received the same email today - "observed wife looking at the painting in subject line above" - but with the name Steve Young. Mr. Leavitt has changed tactics I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I also received it from steve young recently. Recommending keeping this name also on the radar. It's a mix up of some of the sentences from the first and second email, but the general contents is the same.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yup. It's Steve Young now. I got it today. Scumbag. The version I got had the wife in it and mentioned a particular piece of mine. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I got the same type of email from a Steve Young! Thanks so much for this site. I new something seemed off about his email, but I was thankful to find this site before I wasted any time with him.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi there-

    Just got an friendly email from Steve Young stvyoung01@yahoo.com- the scammer- thanks so much to this post I always come here first when I get a questionable email, and you have saved me so much time and hassle. THANK YOU!!!!!!

  50. Yeah, looks like he's going by Steve Young now. Thanks!!

  51. Yes, Just got same email from Steve Young. Thanks for this blog!

  54. Another scam...I got this same email yesterday, but from Steve Ziegler email is: stv.ziegler01@yahoo.com. I originally Googled his email, and didn't find anything suspicious. Then I Googled the text of the email and found your website. Thanks for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Steve is now using last name Zeigler. Same story, same phrases. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

    1. I just got one today (Nov. 28) from a "Steve Ziegler." Even though it referred to a specific piece on my web site, I was suspicious that someone would be wanting to buy a piece of artwork without asking for higher resolution images. For another, I have a price list on my site as well as plenty of info on the "inspiration" for my work that is prominently displayed. The sign off, "Thanks and God bless" seemed very out of place in a business inquiry. Also, it was sent at 8 a.m. which would have been 6 or 7 a.m. Houston time. On Thanksgiving Day? Really he's up that early? So I did an Internet search of one of the phrases and this site came up. I won't waste my time responding, thanks! I'll report stvziegler01@gmail.com to Google.

  56. He's also now using the name Steve Pettus. stvpettus01@gmail.com Keep em coming!

  62. I got the same email about his wife viewing the piece, etc. about 2 weeks ago, using the Steve Pettus name. Was skeptical but couldn't quite figure out how he could scam me with the info he was asking for since it is all information on my resume, which is on my website he had supposedly been looking at. I told him that I could "make it easier on him" by setting up the link on my website that would let him purchase the piece through Paypal and of course I never heard back. Wah wah! Thank you for this blog, got to look out for each other!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Now he is "Steve Pavlina (cme.logistics001@gmail.com)" He surely likes to stay as "Steve." Thank you for this posting!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm an artist in the Northeast and my assistant suspected a scam by the part about overpayment, although I went along with it - then we both knew it was a fraud when the actual check had a $2000 overpayment for shipping his antique car. We are taking it to the bank together to report the fraudulent check.

  67. I really hate this -- my name is steve borgatti and I have a company called analytic technologies.But I haven't made any inquiries about art and I don't have an address that is analytictechnologies01@gmail.com. Now i'm getting endless emails and calls from artists who somehow have obtained my real email address and even my cellphone number.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hello,
    We received very similar emails using the name Steven Ziegler December 18th and 19th. Does anyone know if there is anything we can do about this type of scam except to avoid them and warn each other on blogs?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Yes, that is the second way scammers make our lives miserable! They steal the names of perfectly legitimate people online and create a disposable email account in order to communicate with potential victims, while sullying the reputation of those innocent people who's names have been stolen - though I guess not really as so many people are aware this is a common occurrence. But it is a pain to have artists writing you because they found your real contact information.

    I guess you can get the gmail account shut down, but the scammer will just open a new one.

    I wish there were more we could do to stop these cockroaches.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I got this email, too from Steven Ziegler. They almost got me. sent to me the check then the idiot text me as Steve Pavilina. I've been skeptical for this anyway, Pavilina convinced me this is fake.
    his new name is Steve Pavilina, Jan. 2014. Thanks for this blog!

    Subject: Hello

    Dear ,
    Thanks for the message, I must tell you I intend to give my wife a surprise with the immediate purchase of the piece. Also If you'd like to know, I'm relocating to the Philippines soon and our wedding anniversary is fast approaching. So I'm trying to gather some good stuff to make this event a surprise one. I am buying yours as part of gifts to her (quickly before someone else grabs it). I'm okay with the price, I think it's worth it anyway, so I'll be sending a check.

    As regarding shipping, you don't have to worry about that in order not to leave any clue to my wife for the surprise. as soon as you receive and cash the check, my shipping agent (who is also moving my personal effect) will contact you to arrange pick-up.

    I would have come to purchase the piece myself but, at the moment, am on training voyage to the North Atlantic Ocean (I'm an ocean engineer) with new hires who are fresh from graduate school and won't be back for another couple of weeks.
    Regards,
    Steve.

    PS: In the meantime, kindly get back to me with your full name (you want the check payable to) cell phone no. and contact address (preferably for fedEx not P.O box) where a check can be mailed to, so I can get the check prepared and have it mailed out to you right away.

    Thanks

  76. Hi again Kathleen...

    Today I got an envelope from the "art scammer" Jayesh Pinrani [jkpinrrani@gmail.com]. I scanned the label attached below. Now there is a SC address for us. I will take this envelope to the USPS today and return unopened and have them record a possible Mail Fraud scam

    Hope I am doing the right thing.
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    All the Best

  77. I got the same thing from Jayesh Pinrani in SC - sounded good until he started talking about my getting a check big enough to pay to ship his '32 Ford to the Philippines. I'm waiting to see if a check arrives by FedEx and then to see if there's anything to do about it. Maybe check in with my bank and see what they advise.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ok - here's the thing - he has to have a person working with him to come by and take the goods and take your money. How many cities does he have assistants in? I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Someone posted above from Toronto, someone from 'the Northeast', and someone from Phoenix. It'd be interesting to know where all he/they have partners to work with.
