Received these emails:

"My name is **** ***** and I am from Canada .Several weeks ago I was emailed by a gentleman (I use that term loosely), who introduced himself as Stephen Powell. He told me he was an accomplished oil painter. To make a long story short, he said he was overseas and asked me if I would cash a money order from a purchaser of a painting. Yes, like a fool, the orders came back as forgeries and the rest is history. I have contacted this particular site and let them know that this criminal is definitely not you, and have asked them to provide me with an URL address to give to the authorities."

" I just felt it was only fair play to make you aware of this. I just thought you'd like to know that some guy is using your name on dating web sites to try to defraud women into cashing fraudulent postal money orders for him. Thought you might want to check that out.....I have no means of finding him, but he had an ad on"

Both cases involved forged money orders. I thank the people who have notified me of the scams. Unfortunately having a web page with a contact em ail address makes me a target for spam and identity theft. Please forward any emails or information to myself and the authorities. I will gladly support any prosecutions that result.

I only accept payments through international money transfer or through PayPal.
No checks, money orders or credit cards.

PayPal will prosecute the seller if any form of fraud takes place. This give some protection against fraud for the customers. I use international money transfer as payments made using this system are not reversible. Fraudulent payments using stolen credit cards are common on the web so I don't accept them.
