Find Out About the Latest Art Scams

This spam message is a variation of an initial art scam message we've seen a lot of.  In this case, it has been simplified down to a minimal message wanting to buy a painting for the sender's wife.  Many others have a more complex initial message.  The advantage of this message is it is pretty simple and is more likely to get some initial engagement.  Again, we know that this spam because it has come through many of our artists' website contact page.
