Fraud Alert - Name of Stephen Patrick
Filed under: Fraud Tags: Alert
Several MyArtClub.Com member artists (thank you!) have been advising us they have been emailed by a Stephen Patrick, wanting to buy their art. Do not deal with this person.

We have also posted a warning message on the top of all artists Home Page, that reads:
"Important NOTICE: January, 2012 Fraud artist is mailing to many members. Look for name Stephen Patrick. Do no business with this individual. Refers to being a marketing exec moving to South Africa. He also says to some that he is from Quebec"

Cindy Mawle writes..."this time he is from Quebec. The wording is much like a fraud once that I played along with to see how far it would get. They even mailed me a cheque which I took to the bank and we phoned the company on the address. It was a ranch in Alberta. The woman I spoke to said they had cheques go missing thru fed ex, and they had been showing up here and there for the last couple of years."

If you have scam notes, send to us, we'll try to post them, and categorize under "Fraud". In that way, you can check to see if we have had a report recently of similar nature
