Dali Fakes Haul
Spanish fuzz have collared a Frenchman who had arranged to sell works by Salvador Dali in the Spanish town of Estepona. They seized 81 pieces, most thought to be fakes but also a dozen that might be genuine Dali's stolen in Belgium, France and the US, according to Interpol records. The seized works include sculptures, lithographs, bas-reliefs, engravings, cutlery and pieces of textiles. Twenty suspect certificates of authenticity were also seized. What roused police suspicions? The twit hadn't organized special security for the sale, which should have been worth millions of pounds!
