A Crook gets Some Justice

<< < (2/2)

Pretty much everything in Sadigh's gallery appeared to be fake.  Or at least 99%.  Check out the website - or the waybackproject versions if it is now down.

Central Manhattan-based fraudster.

Anyone who bought there is likely a victim and anything they bought could be brought in as evidence.

There should be a line of victims around the block, though as you say - pride and ignorance.


Many years ago when Sadigh began to get involved in ancient coins and a few antiquities, he was a pleasant and then apparently honest young man.  Many dealers and some collectors were anxious to help him--and then he went off the rails.  His positive reputation quickly fell, and he became someone that no one knowledgeable trusted.  I remain amazed he survived so long with so many obvious fakes.
