I checked online for possible scams by this company and names, and came across one on this site and several other sites with this persons name, but using business names starting with RPG in the name. I searched the web for RPG Art Gallery Inc. in New York Nas using the address in the letterhead. I also searched several different phone book company's online and the results were No Business Found. It is my belief this company is a fake, and used to scam hard working people out of their hard earned money. I was scammed like this years ago by another company and person. I responds to these emails in order to help law enforcement scratch them. I am awaiting another check that has been sent by FED Ex from another company and person. I will report this as I get more information. I am turning over the checks and envelopes to the local police.
