A letter from picasso-and-friends:

For your information, I have not completed one sale on any picture on eBay.
Check my history- all buys.   So, how am I a known art conman and swindler? Yes, I was one of those people who bought a couple of Wolf pieces from SLA about a year ago. If they are bad, I got screwed. Can you give me any supporting info that the pieces are bad. Anything you have in writing whatsoever?

For your information, I tried a one month trial of an eBay store, as Picasso-and-friends, not one sale. eBay told me to change my name because I closed the store. I didn’t do it to swindle people or be an artconman.

Do you think anyone that buys a Matisse or Chagall for $1500 thinks it is anything but a speculation at best. If there was full paperwork with a full certificate it would be $200,000. Lithographs that are ink on paper sell for $5000 and have no resale value.

So, call me what you want. You have freedom of speech. But…calling me a swindler and conman- give me a break.

SLA is the great fake seller, Mr. Eric I. Spoutz, Detroit and Miami Beach
