10 years ago accused Artfakes.dk Eric I. Spoutz of selling fake art works on eBay.com by famous international artists. Enquiries to the police in Detroit and eBay.com was rejected.
Now 10 years later has F.B.I. arrested him. Read the latest news on The Daily Beast written by Katie Zavadski. Also read about the case on www.kunstnyt.dk, mostly in Danish, sorry!

Yours sincerely Preben Juul Madsen
Editor of Artfakes.dk
Since artfakes.dk started well over 10 years ago, we're proud to say that the number of forgeries offered for sale mainly on eBay has been reduced with 80% - 90%. We also take the opportunity to thank our many visitors for all the letters and support we have received during this time. Our efforts to bringing an end to this nuisance have not been fruitless.

For the time being artfakes runs at half speed only or even less. Never the less we do encourage our many visitors to tell about our homepage. The more people who come to know about us the more likely we shall reach out to those individuals who have been betrayed buying fake art at eBay but who still do not know about it.
