Nigerian Art Buyer

by Doug E. L. Haynes

I have been informed by a number of readers that another round of emails from Nigerians seeking to purchase art off of artist’s websites has been going around. This should sound familiar to those of you who remember the article “Scam Artist Reaches out to Visual Artist” in the July August issue of Art in Wisconsin.

Hi, My name is Temitope Williams.i like to place an order for the painting listed below....

For those who are not familiar with this scam, do not respond. Any request to purchase art that originates from Nigeria should be treated with extreme suspicion.
