I finally made it into the Storque again yesterday with a feature about Scams To Be Aware Of. My handcuff earrings were among the items chosen to "illustrate" the pitfalls of internet scamming. Apparently, the "Nigerian scammers" have invaded Etsy as well as our inboxes. I get a few of these a week, and whenever I advertise my joolz on Craigslist, they come in droves.
The upside is that it did result in some sales, for which I am grateful. We all have to be so careful not to click on those suspicious phishing emails, especially from Paypal, which look so much like the real thing!
