Scam Alert!

I just got this e-mail today. It has the horrid stench of a definate scam to me. I got a similar scam e-mail a few months back, and I think it's the same person. If it is, then it was most likely sent in bulk to other artists.

Hello Artist,
How are you doing today..am a at lover and i wish to get a very good work for my new apartment...I read your Ad and i am interested in buying your (Art work,) you still have for sale.Send me recent works you have and their price list and let me know your last asking price on each and if you will accept CHECK as means of payment.Get back to me with the request information asap if there is any question to ask and have a wonderful day.
Regards,
john


Just a heads up to anyone else that gets this same e-mail. It's most likely a scam.

EDIT: The e-mail I got was from one "David Smith" at davidsmith001@live.com
