Scam Email: Wendy Davies

We've been seeing this same email over and over again, with different fake names and disposable emails attached to it, but all this same content. It would seem like the scammers are not mixing it up much these days.

  1. Received this same email today concerning buying paintings from my website. Is there a way to answer this initial email that would help to catch this person?

  2. disturbing...I just received this exact same email today. Specific painting titles from my website were listed, rather it looked copy and pasted (my www is hosted via iWeb, so there is no HTML) so it seems someone is taking the time to manually sending this out. ):<

  3. Terrible... I received the same email today!
