Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Totally fake attempt to buy artwork. Do not fall prey to these type of scams! Sends an excess amount of money for a painting and the extra is supposed to be for shipping. When you send the money via shipping, the check will bounce and you are out! Luckily, I did not send money and waited for the check to totally clear, which it did not.

"Good day to you, I am Ronald Ovredo from El Paso, Texas. I have been on a search for some artworks lately for my wife’s birthday before I stormed on some of your works which I found impressive, looking at each piece of work I can easily see that you added so much dedication in making each work come out to life.

I would like to purchase some of your works as a surprise gift to my wife on her birthday. I will appreciate it if you could possibly recommend and send some pictures of your chosen piece of works, prices and sizes which are ready for sales to me.

I would also like to know if you accept check as a means of payment because my wife handles the family bank cards and pay pal transactions…

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

This Ronald had contacted me through email wanting to purchase art for his and his wife’s anniversary which was supposedly "right around the corner." He said he was from Texas but would be moving to Canada soon and he was "offshore" so a relative of his would be sending the check for him. The check came from a guy in Florida. He paid almost 3 times as much as was necessary claiming the extra amount was for shipping and other fees for his mover that would be transferring his personal possessions to Canada for him. He also insisted I bring the check in by tomorrow.
