Scam Email: Steven Patrick

Hi Kathleen,
Thanks for putting the scam list together.  I got the email below &  his address is already on your list.

From: Steven Patrick []
Subject: [name of art piece here]

Good day,

My name is Steven Patrick, I'm from Quebec and i hope this message finds you well.I was going through your works and my eyes caught this particular work, i will like to have it for my new apartment this month.please let me know if the piece is available, if yes let me have the detailed price and more information about it. I will be waiting to read from you.



  1. Thank you for the 'Stop Art Scams' post & info. I've been contacted by 'Steven Patrick' for the past three days and knew it was suspicious! Thank you for confirming!

  2. Boston, MA
    Another great thanks goes out to the creator of this page!

    Yep same email address and same wording in the email. I am glad I checked before writing back and demanding a phone number!

    Much appreciated.

  3. Dear Kathleen,
    I was scammed by Steven Patrick regarding buying an artwork of mine, but when I saw the envelop with no return address and 3 checks for over $900 each, I knew it was a scam. Hadn't given it too much thought before that except it was odd that he kept saying he'd written a check, but I never got it.

    Anyway, this morning I received a priority mail from Aluminum Company of America with a legitimate address, and inside a check for $2800 from PNC Bank in Pittsburgh, from the Children's Institute of Pittsburgh, again a legitimate address. No note, no e-mail, and an unreadable signature. In the memo section it says "Payment."

    I'm wondering if you've seen any scams related to either Alcoa or Chidren's Institute?

    p.s. thanks for your very informative blog on art scams... wish I'd looked up Steven Patrick in the first place, but at least I didn't get tricked.

  4. If you are selling your car this man will send a text message' pretending a buyer to reply via email only as his phone has no credit to make a phone call.Avoid him as he is hecker.
