Yikes.

A Swiss Collector Wanted to Buy a Ryan McGinley Artwork From Team Gallery. Then a Cyber Thief Slithered Into the Deal

The cyberfraud that shocked the art world in 2017 is still in play, and its latest victims appear to be Team Gallery and a young collector.

Guns are SHRN...

Hillsborough County Sheriff:
A Valrico man is facing charges after accidentally shooting a woman. Around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 26, Andrew Shinault, 23, shot a woman, who is also in her 20s, while engaging in an act of foreplay involving his registered hand gun. The incident occurred at Shinault's home on Grand Canyon Drive in Valrico. The woman, who was shot in the upper body, was transported to Brandon
Regional Hospital where she later died.

On Friday, May 31, Shinault was charged for Manslaughter with a Weapon. Shinault was booked into Orient Road Jail on a $50,000 bond.

Spent a couple of days so far in SC, Myrtle Beach area mostly. Pleasantly surprised, to be honest. Didn’t really talk to the local inhabitants more than I needed to though. Nice people (maybe that’s where talking more than needed would play a role, don’t know). Still have a couple of days before heading home, but will probably come back with the family for a vacation (unless the wife puts the brakes to this plan).

Saw a couple of these:

Both were slapped with the “US marine corps” at the back of the trucks. What’s better than having real patriots guarding the nation, am I right?

The most noticeable thing were the roads. Best highways and city/town roads I drove on in the US. Near perfect, really.

Wish I had time to do some fishing.

A man spent $300 on a painting at a thrift sale. It could be worth millions

The roads are good in Myrtle Beach because they have to put lipstick on that pig to keep those tourist dollars coming in. The rest of the state lives up to it being the 6th most federally dependent state in the country.

No surprise there. All those red states have no income yet always vote red.

A member on UAA started a thread reporting a similar experience around the same time this took place. In their case they were going through artsy to purchase a piece. Think the hacker intercepted the email from artsy to the gallery. From what I remember they too are likely to be sol.
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.
