Artist Email Scams

Since most artists have websites and their email addresses are easily available, it is not surprising when we receive email scams asking to "buy" our work. Here is one that I received below. This person wants to buy my work but does not mention my name, medium and does not even know my website address. The spelling and sentence structure alone makes me cringe.

For some strange reason, I do not think Mr. Matthew Joe and I will be doing any business soon. ;) Maybe I will ask him how many upcoming books on Recycled Glass Sculpture and Design he would like to order?
