COUNTERFEIT THOMAS KINKADE
Counterfeiting has been linked to terrorism, organized crime, and child labor exploitation, and it has been estimated that global losses due to counterfeiting exceed $600 Billion. Counterfeit copies of Thomas Kinkade pieces are replicas or imitations that are aimed at misleading consumers into believing they are purchasing Authentic Thomas Kinkade Artwork.
