  1. Dear Kathleen,
    Thank you so much for your website about scammers who target artists.  This was a first for me.  I got an email about an art card order.  At first delighted, it seemed a bit odd and was in the "too good to be true" arena.  Also, shipping to Denmark?!??!?!?

    So I googled the name and your site came up.  Bless your heart! 
    The name is Richard Aaron Graham.
