Beware of Marc Rosenbaum 
By Alberto Chailosky 
Do you have or know where my art isand if so
I am sure you did not know they were stolen at the time of purchase. Mr. Rosenbaum can be quite slick and deceiving. I need to know if you own one of these pieces. I have NO intention of prosecuting you , or asking for my work back. This is the man who sold them

John Drewe, 50, 
Accused of amassing large amounts of money by selling fakes of modern masters on the art market as newly rediscovered works.  It is also alleged that he corrupted valuable art archives - including those at the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum - by forging histories for the works, thereby damaging "British heritage"
and potentially ruining the reputations of the artists involved. 

Fradulent Credit Cards used to Purchase Artwork
So we called the issuing bank and, sure enough they were all stolen numbers from Americans.

Well-Traveled Renoir
