Art Scams: Use this FASO feature to find out who you are dealing with!
I wanted to share this free feature hosted by Fineartstudioonline (FASO). If a person randomly contacts you about buying your art you may want to use this FASO feature to find out if the person is a known art scammer. This searchable database of known art scammers is made available to artists as a public service. It is free for anyone to use.
Basically, FASO keeps tabs on known or suspected art scammers in order to protect the thousands of artists who have personal websites hosted by FASO. However, anyone is free to search the database at no cost. Thus, you may want to do a search if you receive a message from a potential art buyer that appears suspicious.
Due to the ever-increasing wave of art scams online it is very important to utilize a free service such as this. It will give you some idea of who exactly you are dealing with. See, http://www.fineartstudioonline.com/art-scam/
Take care, Stay true,
