Potential scam targeting pysanka teachers

I have recently been informed by several teachers in the United States that someone "from the UK" is claiming to wish their son to have private tutoring in pysanky. They want to be given the teacher's full name, address, phone number, years of experience teaching, etc. They offer payment through check. We have no evidence that this is a scam, but no evidence that it ISN'T, either. It certainly seems to be odd that so many teachers are being approached by this person. One should proceed with extreme caution if approached by this person. I've put a note about this on several pages on my pysanky site as well, so hopefully everyone who received this email will approach the situation with caution!
