I have recently been contacted by someone named Sergio Robert who is interested in purchasing my work for his wife's 20th anniversary...though he agreed to send me a check before having shipping agent come to make pick up arrangement ...there seems to be something strange about his email (see below ) ..
I have been trying to have a phone call with him but have not heard back. Has anyone been contacted by Robert before ? and does anyone see any potential red flags in his emails ? any advice would be awesome :)
email 1 )
Hello Daisy,Thanks for the message, I must tell you I intend to give my wife a surprise with the immediate purchase of the piece (
) If you'd like to know, I'm relocating to the Philippines soon and our wedding anniversary is fast approaching. So I'm trying to gather some good stuff to make this event a surprise. Kindly email me the asking price asap.
- Tentacles (21"X26" including frame): $2,500
As regarding payment, I would like to inform you, that my wife handles the family credit card/bank and Paypal transaction. So i would authorize a check to you for the payment as soon as i have your full name and contact address (preferably for FedEx delivery no P.O box). Also, as soon as you receive the check and it clears your bank, my shipping agent who is also moving my personal effect will contact you to arrange shipping/pick up of the piece from you (this is to avoid my wife receiving it, if been shipped directly to my address which would ruin the surprise for this event). You both have to sign a proof of pick up at the most.
Have a Positive Day!
