Beware Spam Emails

The scam before, which was very similarly worded, apparently resulted with one person (not a BAMM member as other arts were targetted) receiving a cheque for 10 times the amount of the commission and the scammer requesting the balance of the money from the artist's account.  I assume it is some kind of money laundering enterprise!
