Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
What is your specific question in relation to this please, so that I can best advise?
No problem at all. Do you have a website address at all for this company, or any other contact information?
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. It can be quite difficult to check the legitimacy of someone because there are so many clever ways of hiding one’s identity, or taking someone else’s and hiding behind another company or person’s profile.
Whilst the company in question may be legitimate, who is to say that you are actually dealing with them. Many times I have seen scammers pretend to represent a legitimate company and there is no real way of verifying if they are telling the truth or not, unless you actually manage to personally vet them, such as asking for their ID documents and checking them against the person you are corresponding with (i.e. seeing them in person or vide call, or similar) and then cross-checking it against the company details to see if they are officially linked to them.
In terms of sending you a cheque, all they would need is your name and address to send it to.
Finally, if you are not comfortable with aspects of the sale then you obviously do not have to proceed with it. For the sake of potentially losing one sale, you could avoid losing out a lot more if it is a scam and it may simply not be worth the risk. Stick to your policies and the way you sell artwork and if it does not look right, maybe there is something there which you should avoid
