Beggars, Cheats and Forgers

A History of Frauds Through the Ages

David Thomas

Frauds like Bernie Madoff's are never discovered by the regulators. They either collapse under their own weight, or are exposed by a whistleblower.

Some forgers take a lot of care to collect authentic materials. Others, like John Myatt, use a mix of acryllic paint and KY jelly to provide a fast-drying substitute for oil paint.
