BEWARE!! "Mail Art" (not) spammer called 'Catherine O'Sullivan'

Beware folks!

I was recently contacted by Catherine O'Sullivan who I had never heard of.

'I have seen your Mail Art, and would like to share some thoughts about Mail Art with you', she said.

'OK', 'I replied, 'What do you want to talk about?'

Then I got a follow-up saying she lived in the US (Denver, CO, I think) had been a nurse, was a religous person, was seriously ill, etc, and as I was a 'sensitive' person she would like to transfer some of her funds to me before she died, if only I would give her my bank details, etc.'

Spam -delete!

vizma told me that's probably an old dead email account. so i guess you should block it? definitely not coming from her.

Thanks Ramailart. I'm not on Medium, so she must have got my email address from somewhere else.

Does anyone receive emails from VIZMA BRUNS these days?

She seems to have disaappeared from IUOMA ages ago, but emails supposedly from her keep on arriving , but I never open them.

Never ever reply to such "new members" here at IUOMA.

Best to send the name to Ruud or to the "SPAMMERS Mail Art" group.

Ruud will double check to see if it is a spam and remove it.

Even BE CAREFUL of any new member who does not write a mailing address

or does not post their mail art sent and received, this is a mail art platform not eBay! ha!

Thanks, Val, for posting this name and thanks Ilya for posting the other spammer, too.

Always be careful on the internet!

Hi Valentine Mark:

I too received the exact same email today from Caitriona O'Sullivan, days earlier the same person had sent me similar emails signed by Inaya Suru and Caragh McCarthy. For some reason, the spammers are sure that they can catch a lot of fish in troubled waters here on the IUOMA portal.
