Scammers :/

I’ve been working on a custom portrait of two cute doggies for the past few weeks (minus the time that my son’s school was closed for mold!) The dog parent loves the paintings and I posted them on social media – only to attract the attention of a scammer…

I try to stay pragmatic when someone I don’t know suggests a commission but today’s conversation went on way longer than I expected. My first clue should have been the long name with multiple underscores and then a number at the end. Then they didn’t completely answer my questions. I was starting to think it was a scam and then they started to tell me they can only do a digital copy of a check for me to deposit. RED FLAG!

So, I ended the conversation, politely. Remind me to never use the hashtag “commission” again. Though, I am totally open to commissions, just not the scam variety.

Hi there, this is Brandi. I'm a pharmacist who works a very funny schedule, all week long but only every other week. As a result I'm off half the year plus vacation time. What do I do in all that time off? Good question... maybe if I start documenting it I'll know too:) Just kidding! I spend a lot of time on domestics: fixing up my house, cooking, sewing, knitting and of course bonding with my darling dog Darcy. I actually have the time and money to travel a bit, finally, so I will try to do that often on my week off. To my friends, this may be the quickest way to see what's going on in my life while I'm away.
