Online scam art sales


My Complaint: Justin Lind approached me online asking for images of my artwork with the intent to purchase. After a few exchanges he settled on two paintings and asked for prices. I presented him with the cost and he agreed to my price. He then asked that I contact a shipper on his behalf. The whole process sounded a little fishy as there is usually a bit more dialogue and less mystery involved in selling a piece of art. Things didn’t feel right and I started to do some research. I used to work in art shipping and his shipper didn’t check out. I caught another scammer this way last year who was trying to defraud my former employer. Thankfully, I didn’t sell anything to Mr.Lind.


My Demand: That this person is stopped.
