I am James Fogel from Colorado.. I was looking for some artwork online and I found your contact while surfing and I must tell you, You are doing a great job, I would really love to purchase some of your works for my wife as a surprise present regarding our forthcoming 20th anniversary, I would like to receive further information about your piece of work and what inspires you..Also, kindly email me back with some images and price list of your artworks that is ready for immediate sales within my price range ($2,000- $13,000).. Hope to hear from you soon..
Thanks and best regards..
Thanks for the message, I must tell you I intend to give my wife a surprise with the immediate purchase of the piece. Also If you'd like to know, I'm relocating to the Philippines soon and our wedding anniversary is fast approaching. So I'm trying to gather some good stuff to make this event a surprise one..I'm okay with the paintings (Pink Cashmere $7,500 AND Summer Breeze $3,000 Total $10,500).. I think it's worth it anyway, so I'll be sending a Check.
As regarding shipping, you don't have to worry about that in order not to leave any clue to my wife for the surprise. as soon as you receive and cash the check, my shipping agent (who is also moving my personal effect) will contact you to arrange pick-up.
I would have come to purchase the piece myself but, at the moment, am on training voyage to the North Atlantic Ocean (I'm an ocean engineer) with new hires who are fresh from graduate school and won't be back for another couple of weeks.
PS: In the meantime, kindly get back to me with your full name (you want the check payable to) cell phone no. and contact address (preferably for USPS not P.O box) where a check can be mailed to so I can get the check prepared and have it mailed out to you as soon as possible.
My wife handles the family credit card/bank issues, and in order not to leave any clue to her for the surprise, I've contacted a client of mine to issue out a check which will include my shipping agent fees to you, But courtesy demand i must first appeal to your self interest and ask for your help in remitting the overage (after deducting your fee for the piece) to the shipping agent as soon as the check clears..
I would have handled this much differently if I'd been at home but am a bit pressed for time as our anniversary is fast approaching and do not have access to a lot of cash over here to expedite this transaction.... trying to kill two birds with a stone. kindly deduct any IRS tax incurred on the overage before giving the balance the shipping agent. they are not sending any bill or holding you responsible for the payment of my shipping contract with them..
I am really sorry for the mix up and will appreciate it if you can get back to me to know if I can entrust you with this transaction..
Many thanks and talk to you soon.
Regarding the check, My client would only be able to help me with one check with both funds for the paintings and shipping expenses due to personal reasons which is why I requested for your help in the first instance sorry about that..
Kindly let me know how you want to proceed.. Thanks
Beware of these emails. Had I not been savvy enough to investigate I would have cashed that check and my money would have been completely locked up because I deposited a fraudulent check.
How they get you is that extra money on the check. Come Monday when he sends the check, I'll bet the story will change and he'll want me to Western Union the shipping money instead. And that's how they get you. In the meantime, by the time the check clears, it's a fraud, your account is frozen and you're out a grand or so for that shipping fee you sent out...
Not me! Lol. So, I'm here to pass it on and let you know to BEWARE! If it seems too good to be true, investigate, investigate, investigate!
