Recognize art scams
Have you ever received an inquiry about your artwork that seemed a little bit off? Be wary when it comes to new buyers you’ve never interacted with.
There are a few tell-tale signs of an art scam. Before replying to an email, check for scam red flags.
Are there misspellings or strange grammar? Oftentimes a scam is being thrown together without care, you’ll notice sentences that don’t make sense and other errors.
Does the inquiry immediately try to facilitate a sale?
When a genuine, non-scammer, buyer reaches out about your artwork they will likely have questions about the work, about you as an artist, and may want to see more images of the work before even bringing up the details around purchasing your artwork.
A scam message is always trying to create the quickest possible transfer of money or personal information.
Is there an unnecessarily complicated story within the message? Sometimes scam messages will bombard you with too much information.
This TMI tactic is intended to either confuse you, elicit some type of emotional response, or to rationalize requests about money orders or refunds in the email.
