I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils. I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer.I have been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines.I have sold in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world.I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans,they are always offering to pay with a US POSTAL MONEY ORDER,which is difficult for me to cash here in Netherland.

I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a partime worker and i will be willing to pay %10 for every transaction,which wouldnt affect ur present state of work,someone who would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states.i mean someone that is responsible and reliable,cause the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive,i am working on setting up a branch in the state,so for now i need a representative in the united state who will be handling the payment aspect.

These payments are in money order and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and wire the rest back.

It wouldnt cost u any amount,u are to receive payments which will be sent to u by fedex or usps from my business patners, which would come in form of a U.S. postal money order then u are to cash it,deduct your 10% and send the balance to me via western union money transfer all western union charges will be deducted from my balance.

If you are interested,please get back to me as soon as possible.

I get it…I think. His “representative” deposits the money order, immediately wires him his money, and then finds out the money order is fake, invalid, or reported stolen and voided. This does seem a bit more plausible than your run-of-the-mill advance fee fraud scam, but who is really going to fall for this? Are U.S. postal money orders really that hard to cash in other countries?

    Hi I edited your wikipedia redirect for ‘Posterized’ (to Posterization). Posterized and posterization are also slang terms used in the game of basketball. Can you double check my stuff to make sure I haven’t stepped on your postings? I’m not a wikipedia expert

  2. Bill Koch Says:

    um…OK, that’s fine. For future reference, if you want to contact me about Wikipedia, leave a message on my User talk page, or just e-mail me.

    Hello there,

    My name is J. S. Moore and I am an artist. I live in the United Kingdom,
    with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life. It is
    definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small
    child. That gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in
    high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in
    either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils. I have recently added
    designing and creating artworks on the computer. I have been selling my
    arts for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards,
    prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries and to private
    collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious
    difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans, they are
    always offering to pay with US POSTAL MONEY ORDER, which is difficult for
    me to cash here in the United Kingdom.

    I am looking for a representative in the States who will be working for me
    as a partime worker and i am willing to pay 10% for every transaction,
    which wouldn’t affect your present state of work, someone who would help
    me receive payments from my customers in the States. I mean someone that
    is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to the States to
    get payments is very expensive, i am working on setting up a branch in the
    U.S pretty soon. But for now I need a representative who will be handling
    the payment aspect.

    These payments are in Money Order and they would come to you in your name,
    so all you need do is cash the Money Order, deduct your percentage and
    wire the rest to me. It wouldn’t cost you any amount, you are to receive
    payments which will be sent to you by Fedex or USPS from my business
    partners, which would come in form of a Money Order then you are to cash
    it and send the cash to me via Western Union Money Transfer. All Western
    Union charges will be deducted from the money.
    If you are interested, endeavor to send your reply immediately to my
    e-mail address: hnfart1@gmail.com

    Dear friend,

    I am most grateful for your response to my mail and I seize this opportunity to thank you for coming to my rescue and to also let you know that this transaction is a straight forward and legal transaction. I hope you were not too embarrassed by my first email to you since you do not know me. I had no option so I resorted to putting fate to test and making a random contact. I got your email address from the web email directory and decided to introduce my plight and this transaction. I am communicating with only you at this moment with regards to this transaction and I would not have any cause to do otherwise. I’ve had different dealings with many Americans and I believe they are very honest. I look forward to a very trustworthy relationship.

    Presently I have a client who is offering to pay me in form of a US Postal Money Order. I will like to know if I can count on you to send back the balance of the funds to me after cashing and deducting your 10%.

    Kindly get back to me with your:

    *FULL NAME- to whom the Money Order will be made payable to.
    *HOME ADDRESS- where the Money Order will be mailed to.
    *CELL PHONE #- for easy contact.

    I pray for a long lasting business relationship. May God almighty reward you.

    Best Regards,
    J.S.Moore

    So, has anyone cashed a money order or not?

  24. Pamela Says:

    I have so received the same email and this is a fraud case. If you get any of the money orders immediately turn them into the US Postal Service because they are fake.

  25. Gayle Smith Says:

    I work on Ashford Business Complex, there are 19 Units on this Industrial Estate, none of which have anything to do with the Art world.
    The address that is being used for these fake money orders is a company address that neither Gary Art Gallery nor David Art Gallery exists from.
    We have contacted the police and passed over all the information that we have including fraudulant money orders that have been sent to us by people thinking the Art Galleries actually exist.
    Please don’t be taken in by these scam artists.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    How are you doing. I came across your email address and your brief
    profile
    through an email listing affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce. I
    would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in
    which
    you could earn alot.
    My names are David Cyril and I am 58 years of age. I just resigned my
    job
    as a research scientist for ARINI(Agricultural Research Institute of
    Northern Ireland) and I now work as a freelance consultant for the
    instistute which gives me very much time to do my own work which is
    basically being a freelance researcher who could be employed by
    research
    institutes to do research projects anywhere in the world.
    Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research
    project
    in the tropical regions of Europe regarding rare and vulnerable
    plant
    species and this would be commencing very soon.
    This research program will be funded and sponsored by some of my
    American
    counterparts and Associates. But the only set back is that the American
    counterparts want to make payments for the research in form of US money
    orders/ travellers checks only and its a known fact that money in such
    forms cannot be cashed outside the US. Getting an accountant in the
    states
    or opening an account would have been my best choice but I have a
    deadline
    to meet and taking any of those choices would cost me time and a whole
    lot
    of
    other requirements which I am not ready to deal with. This is where I
    need
    to employ your assistance and service.

    WHAT I NEED YOU FOR?
    At this point, I will be glad if you could work with me as my
    representative in the US. You will be working as my payment assistant
    incharge of collecting and processing the payments from my
    Associates.Since they will be making the payment in Money orders/
    Travellers checks made payable only in the US, you will be collecting
    this payments and
    cashing them on my behalf. On agreement to been my representative in
    the
    US, you will receive a commission of 10% of whatever amount of payment
    you
    receive from my associates.

    JOB DESCRIPTION?
    1. Recieve payments (in form of money orders/travellers checks) from my
    associates via mail(UPS/FEDEX/DHL).
    2. Cash the Payments at your Bank.
    3. Deduct 10% which will be your commission/percentage on Payment
    processed.
    4. You are to remit the balance via Money Gram or Western Union Money
    Transfer according to my instruction.

    HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN?
    10% from each transaction! For instance: On receiving 6000 USD via
    cheques
    or money orders on my behalf. You will cash the payment and keep 10%
    to
    yourself before remitting the balance! At the beginning your commission
    will equal 10%, though later it will increase up to 12%! For the
    research,
    I am expecting about the sum of $45,000 in
    total from the clients(though the money will be sent in installmentally
    due to the progress of my research). You could make over $4,500 for the
    little time we will be working together.

    ADVANTAGES?
    You dont have to go out of your present daily activity inorder to
    engage
    in this Job(i.e. you can do this Work easily without leaving or
    affecting
    your present Job).You will work as an independent contractor right from
    your home /office. Your job is absolutely legal. You do not need any
    capital to start(non of your personal funds is needed).

    REQUIREMENTS?
    18 years or older.
    Legally capable.
    Responsible, Reliable and Trustworthy.
    Ready to work 3-4 hours per week.
    Able to check and respond to emails often.
    Easy telephone access.

    IS THIS LEGAL?
    Yes it is.As a matter of fact,my lawyer checked all legal provisions to
    know if there is any dosmestic or international law against businesses
    or
    deals in this manner.And he said its allowed by all LAWS.So know that
    doing this work is safe and legitimate.

    I hope all is well understood. I would be glad if you accept my
    proposal
    and I intend to commence as soon as you are ready.

    to
    selling my art works to Americans,they are always offering to pay with
    a US
    MONEY ORDER,which is difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom
    because

    as a

    transaction,which wouldn’t affect your present state of work,someone
    who
    would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states.I mean

    a
    branch in the states,so for now i need a representative in the united
    states
    who will be handling the payment aspect.These payments are in money
    order
    and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash the

    problem i
    have is trust but i have my way of getting anyone that gets away with
    our
    money,i mean the FBI branch in Washington gets involved if any of my
    employees want to play funny games so if you have bad intentions in
    mind
    then don’t just try it because you will be caught with ease and dont
    forget
    you will be dropping you i.d num so that make it easier.It wouldn’t
    cost you
    any amount to get this transaction done,you are to receive payments
    which
    will be sent to you by fedex or usps from my business patners but

    Fedex,which would come in form of a money order then you are to cash it
    and

    I didn’t get through the first sentence before wondering what this scam was about.
    “I hope this email meets you in good condition of health,” NOBODY talks like this.

    ( OFFER OPEN TO PEOPLE LIVING IN THE USA AND CANADA ONLY)

    Good Day,

    My name is Eric J. Turner, My Company is looking for a someone in the
    STATES/ CANADA that is trustworthy and honest who would be helping out
    with payment collection and processing.. All you would be doing is
    receiving these payments that would come to you via the mail system in
    your country, have them cashed and remit the rest to me. I would be
    willing to pay you 10% of whatever payment you process. These payments
    would come in different forms.

    I have been designing arts and crafts since I was a small child. That
    gives me about 20 Years of experience. I majored in art in high school
    and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either
    pencil or airbrush mixed with colour pencils. I have recently added
    designing and creating artwork on the internet. I have been selling my
    art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading
    cards, prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries and to private
    collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious
    difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans; they
    are always offering to pay with Different Modes, which are difficult
    for me to cash here in the UK. Because of a hold of almost two weeks
    that would be placed on them before they clears the banks here in the
    UK.

    These payments would be coming in your name, so that it would be
    possible for you to have them cashed. And there is NO FEE or SIGN-UP
    FEE of any kind. The payment would be sent to you directly from my
    clients in the states or by me after verifying the details on them. All
    you would be doing is cashing the payments and deducting your share
    (10%) and having the rest sent down to me via WESTERN UNION MONEY
    TRANSFER. the FEE for the transfer would also be deducted from my SHARE
    of the money

    If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as Possible with
    your full contact details, which should include, your:

  35. Joe Wein Says:

    Any job offer that involves either cashing checks or money orders for your “employer” in your private bank account or receiving wire transfers in your private bank account and then forwarding these funds by wire transfer is a scam. There are NO legitimate job offers like that. If it involves a check or money order, it’s usually by a Nigerian fake check scam ring. If it involves receiving wire transfers it’s normally by a Russian or Romanian phishing gang that is emptying hacked bank accounts via your account. You stand to lose everything you forward as well as facing the risk of fraud charges. If you receive any such offers you can have them checked out only using the Scamomatic website (scamomatic.com).

    I work for a company that really is at the address that these fraudsters keep giving out. We are an Industrial Estate, there are no Art Galleries here. I have reported the matter to the police and handed over all the relevant documents that have been returned to our address by people that have been taken in, these have been given both to the police and American Express who are both investigating the matter.
    The companies known so far are, The Gary Art Gallery, The David Art Gallery and now the Chris Dunn Art Gallery, the VAT number they all use are fake and so is the company registration number.
    I would suggest that in a few months time that the name of the Gallery will change again, the one constant is the address that they use.
    Please do not be taken in.

    Hello, I hope this email meets you in good condition of health, but I feel quite safe dealing with you in this mutual beneficial transaction.
    Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest.

    I am Gerald Matthews and I draw and paint for a living, I am 33 years old and have been drawing for 13 years. I am married with 2 kids. I have
    a vacancy in my company. As I am just setting up in the USA I will be requiring a financial representative to work on a part time basis. I
    sell Arts all over the world, have sold to galleries and to private collectors, I am always facing serious difficulties selling my art works to
    Americans, they are always offering to pay with either Money orders/cashiers check, which is difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom. I just
    need some one that could help me, this position will not take up your time nor will you have to use your own resources for the position.
    The job does not entail anything stressful; you can do this while you still continue with your full time job or school. All you need is to
    devote about 5 hours of your time in a week in a given period of time. The payment will be sent to you via regular mail or FedEx. When you get
    these payments which are for my paintings, you will cash it at your bank, deduct 10% of the money for your effort and have the rest wired to me
    Via western Union or money gram.

    Also you will need to have a BANK ACCOUNT where the check can be cleared and most important you need to be HONEST with me, my painting starts
    from $2500USD and above and this contract will last for about 6 months till am fully established in the USA. Kindly let me know if you will be interested in the Job Offer, all replies should be emailed to:gmatthewsartss@yahoo.es

    I suggest you DO NOT wire the funds from your account to his account. Wait two weeks or so until the bank finds out the money orders are fake.

    >Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with theamount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold.

  56. Taps Says:

    I also received an email from an artist called Daniel Cosmos. Perhaps the money orders aren’t fake but instead belong to people who are involved in money laundering. They could be trying to get drug money or some other illegal funds out of the United States through individuals. So even if you find that everything works out… be very, very careful - You may want to reconsider.

    introduced this to you.I have been doing artwork since I was a small
    child. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art
    courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed
    with color pencils. I have recently added designing and creating
    artwork on the computer. , prints and in magazines. I have sold in
    galleries and to private collectors from all over the world and i get
    paid without hassle. I am always facing serious difficulties when it
    comes to selling my art works to United Kingdom, Asians, Dublin,

    increase the commission from time to time based on your competence and
    efficiency. This does not stop you from doing your normal job,it’s
    just for you to take deliveries of payments and cash them and transfer
    the money to me here in the U.S.A via Money gram Or Western Union
    International Money Transfer. May i not fail to inform you that you
    have to assure me that any payments you receive will be instantly
    cashed and transfered immediately,as i are just starting this set up

    Daniel Cosmos has moved onto PayPal scams. I almost fell for this one. I listed something on Craigslist and he emailed me back asking to pay through PayPal. I sent him an invoice and received an email back indicating the invoice had been paid. This email looked VERY real and had all my personal info…my name, mailing address…everything. The email address it was sent from was not a PayPal address though. I called PayPal and they were impressed with this scam. I forwarded them the scam emails. Don’t fall for this one.

  72. Adrienne C. Says:

    If anybody is interested, this is the address he gave me to mail the item I was selling:

  73. Bob King Says:

    Well, Mr. Cosmos almost got me as through Craig’s list as well. He had me totally convinced that he was legitment and honest. What a piece of crap this guy turned out to be. Had I followed his directions and used PayPal the way he wanted me to do it, I would have been out a beautiful gift worth mucho dollars. I am turning this all over to PayPal for there action. Don’t worry folks, this guy is now way off limits list. I found out him on all of your postings. Thanks a whole bunch and may he never sucker you in.

  74. Cheryl W Says:

    Yep, he came after me too:

    Daniel Cosmos Fine Art

    Am interested in buying your Natural Sapphire Pendant today, Pls whats the final asking price. Have a great day.

    Thank you so much for your interest.”

  75. Cheryl W Says:

    Season 1, Episode 2 of “Crazy Cosmos”!

    Oops, he’s being tenacious. Got this today:

    “Okay thanks so how much is it, Plus shipping over night to Newark,07104,New Jersey.”

    I replied:

    “No shipping charge is required on my part. When you or your buyer’s agent hands me the money, I’ll hand you the item. If you require it to be sent to NJ, we can meet at the local post office and you can take care of it there after your purchase.

    As stated previously, this is a cash-only sale.”

    Stay tuned! LOL

  76. not so gullible... Says:

    Got a similar email from daniel cosmos for a ring I’m selling on craigslist about 10min ago asking for the final price of the item. If in doubt, google! Glad I did.

  77. not so gullible... Says:

    Round 2, just responded with this: “I was just made aware via that lovely thing called ‘the internet’ that you are running a paypal scam in addition to a money order fraud scheme. You’re nothing but a boil on the ass of society. Go crawl back in your hole and die.” These people make me sick.

  78. cosmos fail Says:
