Dear Scammer: letters by Ann Hirsch ⌧
A series of notes written to a hypothetical future scammer
Dear Scammer is a new series from Ann Hirsch, commissioned by Gemma. In a series of seven unique handwritten notes, the artist imagines the messages one might leave for their hypothetical future scammer.
Each day this week, a new letter will be revealed at 12am EST / 9am PST on Zora. If you’d like to respond to the letters yourself—whether to air your frustrations about a scam you’ve been subjected to, or share a story about a legendary scam you’ve heard of—we encourage you to mint a letter and leave a message in the comments for tokenchat.
”In our society, there are so many different layers to scams, and format for scams. When you start picking things apart, you realize that almost everything is a scam, even though we don't always call it that.”
— Ann Hirsch
