The three f's of art crime


The worldwide illicit art market is estimated to be $6 billion annually. Although theft is a problem, more than 75 percent of the loss is through fraud, forgeries and fakes. Robert Wittman has investigated countless cases involving these crimes and will share with audiences how to best protect themselves from becoming victims of these sophisticated fraudsters, all in the context of his most titillating and audacious stories of fraud.

In “The Three F’s of Art Crime: Frauds, Forgeries and Fakes,” audiences will be fascinated by an investigator's perspective on the headlines of the largest and most interesting frauds ever perpetrated in the art and collectible world.
