Original Post

From Michael Johnson of Metalsmiths Unite

A heads-up- A scam is targeting artfire, etsy, and other online vendors - First off, they will be from Eastern Europe (Slovenia is the most common), they will refuse to use Paypal, and they want you to use a fake shipping company. My red flag went off at the shipping company, because I have used every oddball shipping company in the world and never heard of E. Logistics Limited. A Google search came up with this website.

Be careful, if someone doesn't wan't to use Paypal for overseas transactions, let that be a redflag.
