Jennifer Shirley has alerted me to an email she, and apparently other
turners, have received purporting to come from my site and offering to
buy work.

If anyone has received this email - please note that this has NOTHING
to do with me.

The content (apparently they are all identical) appears below - I don't
understand at the moment how they wouldbenefit as someone replying to
it would have the email forwarded to me - unless I'm missing something
on my settings.  It would appear to be the prelude to an attempted
fraud - the language is not correct and it appear to come from Eric
Ericcson yet is signed by Eric moore (lower case m).

Please contact me if you get an approach like this - and I will
authenticate or otherwise

Hello
I am very happy to visit your website and I found some beautifulwork
you have in
your gallery and I have interest in purchasing some of works.
I will like to know if you ship internationally to  Malta and also if
you accept (MoneyOrder/Cheque and Visa Card) as a method of payment.
I want you to get back to me with  your updated webpage,so that I can
choose the
items needed to purchase from your store/gallery.
Due to high  shipping and custom charges,I can make an arrangement for
the pickup of the order.
I will be looking forward to hearing from you asap.

Thanks
Eric moore



Thanks

This part looks like a scam. But perhaps they screwed up and forged the
wrong information in the e-mail.  

If you want to, you can send/tell me the headers in the e-mail
message, and I can find out what country the person is from.

This is probably some variant of the Overpayment scam.

That is my view entirely - usually a third party shipper is involved as
seems to be indicated here.

I don't have a sample of the email to be able to forward to anyone - I
was alerted to this by somebody else and have not had the full
document, including header, sent to me.

Not that this really matters - I just wanted to alert people here to
the way in which the name is being wrongly used to try and lend
credibility to something.
