Scam Email: Christopher Benson

Hi KatieMoe,

I don’t see this name on your list but it sounds like a scammer.

> Begin forwarded message:
> From: christopher benson []
> Subject: Artwork Purchase
> Hello, my name is Christopher Benson from Atlanta, I was looking for some artwork online and I found your contact while searching. I will like to purchase one of your work for my wife as a surprise gift for our 20th anniversary. I'll need pictures and prices of some of your art work which are ready for immediate sale within price range of $1,500- $2,500. I hope to hear a lot more about any available piece in your inventory ready for immediate sale.
> Thanks,
> Chris.


  1. Hello. Here's another one. It must be art scam week. Similar story.

  2. Unfortunately, every week is art scam week :)

  3. I just received an email that sounds almost exactly like this one. He said his name is James Fisher and he lives in Brooklyn. Fortunately, I started feeling odd and decided to ignore future communications. THanks so much!
