Forged Jesuit

The impostor Jesuit with one of his forgeries
The man has attempted to pass off cleverly forged works, complete with auction house records, at several museums in a scam that the authorities believe has been operating for 20 years. However, unlike other expert forgers, the man appears to be uninterested in payment for his Picassos, Signacs and Daumiers. Calling himself Father Arthur Scott, among several other aliases, he simply seems to enjoy hoodwinking museums into accepting his fakes and inviting him to special "donor events".

How immoral, underhanded, and despicable.
