  Dear Kristen,

I received the exact email from Mr. Clement--the James Clement. I was leary based on his poor English. At first, I thought maybe he was an international dealer, but it appears he was a fraud. Also, the photo that he wanted to order was strange; it appealed to a very narrow group, and unless he belonged to this group, he wouldn't sell the photo. Not to mention that he said that he wanted to buy 15 of that same photo. I thought this was strange from the beginning. And it was even stranger when I didn't hear from him again after I gave him a bid. The comments of others has helped me. I think everyone in the betterphoto group should be notified.

All the best,

Gregg

  I have reported the email scams, Mr. James Clement and his or her other aliases, to the Internet Crime Complaint Center. If anyone has actually been scammed out of money, please let me know so that we can take further action against preventing future fraud that originated from the betterphoto site.

Sincerely,

Gregg Johnstun

  I received the same email this morning:

"Hello, My name is James Clement and I will like to order for some artwork or photograph from you and I will like to know if you accept cashier cheque or money order as a means of payment and also I will like to inform you that I will be arranging for the pickup myself. So if that is ok by you,just get back to me as soon as possible.thanks. James."
