Fine Art America has compiled a database of known scammer email addresses and/or names that you can search to see if your message is a scammer. Clint Watson stated, ___This searchable database of known art scammers is made available to artists as a public service of FineArtStudioOnline. The email and IP addresses in this database are added when the FASO system, using various metrics and algorithms applied across the thousands of artist websites that we host, determines that the person is a likely scammer. If the person is a scammer, he/she is added to this art scammer database. If you receive a suspicious message, feel free to check it against this database, free of charge.
