Hope this message finds you well. I saw these creative works on your
website and I will like you to get back with more details if they are
still available for purchase.

Never a good sign when they can't remember how to spell their fake name....


  1. We just caught this one going through and sending emails on our local art website. Blocked the address and verified that it originated in Nairobi, Kenya. Definitely scamming.

  2. FYI on 3/18/2016 This email address emailed a number of artists on Artsyo with the message:

    From: Brain (
    Message: I'm interested in buying your piece. Let's talk – email me.

    The sender claims to be a 'Brian Campbell' but note again they can't spell their own name.
