I just wanted everyone to know the scammers are still out there and flourishing! I got this boggus scam from Frank Porto, or frankzporto@gmail .com.
He has been very busy sending out this well copied letter to many artists. He is a stupid scammer, but he knows how to take you through the cleaners.
Here’s what he sent me:
Do you still have this your Beautiful work available for purchase? the
work am talking about are on the subject of my email.
Please email me their price if they are still available..
Email me the largest of their size that you have.

Dear Shirley Kleppe,
Thank you for the Information about the Artwork.
Regarding the Payment I will issue you a Cheque, it will be a cashier
or Bank Draft , “advised by my Bank” I will inform you as soon as the
Cheque is been sent out from my office in Scotland.
I will need your information to process the Cheque. We may also speak
on Skype if you wouldn’t mind in other to discuss about the
Name on Check:
Also i want you to know that i will appoint a secured shipping company
that will come for the pickup of the Pieces in your destination. The
shipping fees will be added to your payment.
So I guess a guaranteed secured shipper will be preferably considered
and appoint for the pickup.
Am on Skype as: frank_porto1, or call me on +447024058552.
READ ON IT GETS BETTER. TYPE IN THE PHONE NUMBER INTO GOOGLE, AND YOU WILL SEE THIS ONE! BEWARE AND PASS THIS ON!!
