    James McCallum

    Hi everyone! Here is a scam I got in my mailbox that I thought I should put in here so that if anyone else encounters them & decides to google it, this page will hopefully come up! (It might SOUND legitimate to some people as well, so I thought I better post it to help others out, a payment processing scam)


    Good day to you, my name is James McCallum I’m the owner of James McCallum wildlife Art Company living and working in North Norfolk UK with my family. I was born in Wells-next-the-sea, North Norfolk on 25th April 1970 to a local family. I grew up in the area and soon became interested in wildlife and landscape. On leaving school I went on to study at art college but it was not until my early twenties that both interests were seriously combined and the outdoors chosen as a studio to draw, paint and study wildlife directly from life. In 1996 I graduated from the Royal College of Art with a master’s degree in natural history illustration and subsequently won several awards for my paintings.

    My work has captures the play of light and shadow in the urban environment: the patterns cast on the street by the elevated train trestles, the windows of apartment buildings gilded at sunset, the sharp white heat of a sidewalk in high summer, or the deeply shadowed canyons between tall buildings in late autumn afternoons.

    Some weeks ago,we have begun our business in United States Of America and Canada due to the high demand of our products by our customers.Due to this fast-paced growth,we are expanding our USA market and looking for overachievers to be part of the team!

    Thanks for posting that 'cash the fake check' job type scam. Did you notice the subtle changes in grammar, spelling and syntax from the first 2 paragraphs to the rest?

    I googled James McCallum and discovered he really is a wildlife artist, I bet he has no idea his name and company identity have been stolen. There are ads on job posting boards for the same 'cash the fake check' job. Maybe you could check out his website and forward that email to him, to give him a heads up about what has just happened to him. That way he could possibly post a warning on his website that he is NOT hiring for payment processing clerks.

    Meri, thank you for the fantastic idea!! I will definitely forward this to him, it's a shame someone would try to associate themselves with a legitimate artist and possibly ruin a bit of their reputation.
