"I've got auction catalogs from the early 90's with Joe Long stuff in it. When he was"outed" by Frank Caiazzo...people who bought stuff from Joe Long didn't want to believe it....but by the time they did...it was too late. I…"

"I'm hip I purchased these as an investment.  If they were real I was most likely to auction them off with a minimum start at around 16k. So much for the new roof gutters and windows."

"Well with numerous "top shelf" dealers willing to allow the forgeries be out there like they have done.  I guess that nobody in this industry can or should be trusted.  Fraud even after the fact is still fraud.  I did loolk…"

"I dealt with Joe Long when he was releasing catalogs and purchased good and bad from him. I've described him here previously as a classic example of a sociopath. Part of the problem that you will have in pursuing Joe Long is that numerous…"
