Overview

Hoaxers, imposters, fakers, forgerts, conmen - the world has always been fascinated with those who resort to deception in the pursuit of fame, money - or both.

Gathered together in this book are the world's most notorious and memorable figures from the history of faking it - artists, writers, scientists, financial fraudsters, as well as those who simply decided to take on someone else's identity. Some stories, such as the fake Bill Gates assassination hoax, are difficult to believe while others, such as credit card forgery, are only too familiar.

Fakes & Forgeries is a glimpse into a fascinating world of extraordinary individuals, and unusual crimes.
