Spams, Phish and Art

Spammer graphic - Allure (2006)Following my recent blog on a phishing expedition that targets PayPal users, sculptress Julianna Yau emailed me with the news that she's set up a website that warns of a variety of scams, especially those which target artists. It's called Bogus Art Fair Info (hint). I've been wondering about a suitable graphic for this blog. Today, the Yambo Financials Spam Gang sent me one. Thanks, guys. Just what I needed. Nice graphic, very artistic. I see you still can't spell. (N.B. this is a spam, not a phish nor a scam.)

They obviously think that the Art community is gullible.
Come on Coxsoft, you've got to admit they have a point!
