These sort of emails have been doing to rounds for some time but obviously people are still getting caught. The ABC show, Stateline, ran a segment about this in September 2004 and the emails just keep coming through! Here is copy of an email I received today…

The credit cards a fraudelent or stolen and you won’t find out for a couple of months until the real owner questions the transaction. If they don’t just hit you up for art then they’ll ask for other things outside your normal scope of sale like electronic equipment as in the Stateline example. Do this and you run into problems with your bank as well! I’ve heard they also get you to charge them more than required and send them funds in return by Western Union.

Be very careful of who you deal with. Unfortunately the few bad ones just make us that much more wary but don’t worry, there are enough good people out there too that do the right thing!
