ART FRAUD on EBAY!! MY ART Has Been Stolen!
So, can you even believe that some creep in CHINA is trying to sell MY WORK, as well as other artists such as Philip Gladstone on ebay?? PLEASE be aware at HOW MUCH ART FRAUD is taking place on ebay!This is the very reason SOOOOO many artists have and continue to leave ebay!I had just listed a couple paintings this evening on ebay just to keep my name out there and was SHOCKED to see MY PAINTING above listed by thinking_shop2008 . I have contacted ebay and was told to fill out a form and report this person which I did, but something more needs to be done as these creeps will simply open up shop with a different name. It's a game these cons play...please RESEARCH the ARTIST before you buy...when in DOUBT ask several established ARTISTS what their opinion is of a 'so-called artist'. GOOGLE the artist....and as always if something looks a little too good to be true or fishy, chances are it is ART FRAUD!This seller has 38!! pages of paintings, is that not enough of a clue ebay???
