I just received an email through my business and the subject was "Serious Query", he went onto my site and used the info e-mail.

Do you buy photos? I am a profecional photogripher with a large amount of stock im looking for a new way to distribute. You can view some of my photos on fb  His spelling, not mine.

He left his e-mail address, and there's too many men with the same name on facebook to find him by a name search.

I would normally dismiss an e-mail like this but due to the recent rampant theft I wonder if he should be taken a little seriously (as a possible thief that is).

It's spam. All red flags are up.

What's his email address?

Hard to see from this if it's a scam or a very naive person looking to sell some images.
"Good" scams are usually much slicker. But I agree it's spam since you've had no dealing with this person. I'd hoist at least one red flag, though.

I think a couple of other people posted here on this forum a while back about receiving similar inquiries. I think it's spam, also.

Yeah, I don't need any more viagara, I get lots of spam on my blog but not a lot through my business.   

I am still curious to see where the Istock photos pop up though.

As long as he is from Nigeria and you send money by Western Union -- you should be fine ;)
