I have been communicating with an art dealer in Bahrain for a week or more, they asked to purchase three original paintings. They gave me a credit card number for a deposit and I got a crate built and everything ready to ship yesterday. Well yesterday was Veterans Day so the crate was not shipped, it was to be shipped today. Meanwhile I get a call from the credit card company that a charge back was placed on my account. The thieves thought the crate was shipped yesterday so they charged back their payment to me. I called my crate builder immediately and asked them to STOP shipment. They did. So now I have a beautiful wooden crate, and my artwork, and the thieves have nothing except their money back. What a scam. Artists, be warned. Do not do business with these people, if you want names send me an email and I’ll name them.
