I just had a visit from a gentleman claiming he was from overseas and was here selling oil paintings from fellow university students. “Art For All” was the name of the scheme If I remember correctly.
He was selling the paintings from about $150. I purchased one (Silly maybe) for $175, mind you it looks great and will definately put it up. He said a framer will give me a call in a few days to arrange a time to frame it for an additional fee (to cover materials).
I decided to look up this so called “Art For All” and couldnt find anything except for a few things about scams of people selling cheap chinese ripoffs and getting commission from the sales.
Keep an eye out for him in the next couple of days.
