Ook leuk, het werk 100USD. 90USD, 65USD, oil paintings ordered over the internet. Drie schilderijen van 100 x 100 cm, verschillend geprijsd, verschillend in waarde? Inclusief schitterend taalgebruik in de meegeleverde emailwisseling:

“This painting will be cost $90 and the shipping fee will be cost $25 .
So the total money is $115 .You should pay the total money 30% before we start painting it for you .”

“For this 100cmx100cm painting, the price is USD65, and the shipping cost to USA is USD33. and it is no problemn to finish it in two weeks. i think we can finish it about one week.”
