Scam Email: Tyler He

This scammer had trouble faking a decent last name (and then inverted it for his temporary disposable email address), but otherwise everything else about this scam is all to the formula.

Original email:

From: tyler He []
Subject: [actual name of painting inserted here]

How are you doing? Was going through your works and love this piece. I would like to make the purchase if it is still available.

Thanks and i await your response.

Hello Catherine,
How are you doing? Thanks for your prompt reply. Well,  I'm quite satisfied with the details but would also like to inquire about a minimum price...

Unfortunately, I'm on my way to France and few other countries on an official trip (I'm a marketing Executive) and wont be back for another  couple of weeks, If you'd like to know, I'm relocating  to the UK this month and I'm trying to gather some good furniture for my new abode. I'm buying yours piece amongst others, quickly! before someone else grabs it.:)
Glad if you could let me have me your phone no. so I give you a call. 
Best Regards,

PS: In the mean time, you could forward me your full name and contact address so I can mail out the certified check to you ASAP.

My studio is cleaned up and ready for the weekend of Winter Open Studios at the ICB Building in Sausalito, CA. I've got those special Open Studio only prices up. I'll be open Dec 3-4, 11-5pm, along with over 80 other artists in the building. Lots of art to see. I'm located in studio 237 on the second floor right across from the Manager's Office.

I'd love to have you stop by and say hello!
