It is strange to think that 20 years ago the thought of Photographers and Artists being able to display their creations to a world wide audience was not even a "dream." Now of course, the world-wide web has enabled anybody with talent, (and many without!) to display and sell their images at the click of a button. Here at Pixiport we strive to maintain a site that represents the very best, Quality with a capital Q.
However, as most of you will know, there are still some sharks out there in these waters who will try anything to con you out of your money or your creative works. We have recently been informed of a scam in which a so called "customer" made an offer to purchase images using American Express Gift Cheques as payment. When the Cheques arrived they were for a far greater sum than that agreed for the sale, made up of several $500 USD cheques.
It transpired that the largest denomination American Express issue in gift cheques is $100 All we can do is warn you in the very best tradition of "Hill Street Blues" to "Be careful out there." Ensure that payment is always made in a form which leaves you in no doubt that the purchase is genuine. Never part with your goods until you are satisfied that payment has been made with legitimate funds, and above all trust your instincts.
