Dude Almost Falls For Incredibly Believable Scam

We like to see idiot scammers get trolled, but sometimes they're incredibly clever and have access to way more of your information than you thought. Seriously, someone can dig up tons of personal information on you like your family members and past addresses in order to look legit, and frankly that's spooky as hell. This guy had to deal with just that but thankfully had the sense to back out.

In a move as bold as one Banksy would make himself, his former agent (and current enemy), Steve Lazarides, is holding a Banksy exhibition in a car park in Melbourne, Australia from Oct. 7 through Jan. 22, showcasing over 80 works from different private collections.

Lazarides likes to do sh*t for shock value even though that's a juvenile way to do art. He and Banksy haven't spoken in ages, including at a recent Massive Attack concert in March when they kept their distance from each other.

They are mainly hyping the exhibit as rare, in that the works are privately-owned so it's unlikely to know when they will be shown publicly again, but the bottom line is that Banksy isn't going to benefit from this exhibit, as he explicitly states on his own website (pictured below) that he has no connection with Lazarides.



So if you want to support the artist then you should try to fund public art all over the place, so that people like Banksy can make a decent living.
