The Crime Through Time Collection here at Littledean Jail has recently confiscated a mass of astonishingly pathetic so say Kray and Bronson memorabilia as seen here in the gallery below .
Sadly a middle aged gentleman had been duped out of many thousands of hard earned pounds, now known to be one of a great many in a similar situation .
These were all purchased from and through an alleged former fellow inmate and exceptionally close friend of Reg Kray whilst being his personal golpher in HMP Wayland, .This conman and forger trades under the name “Clive ” …In fact this man has never even met Reg Kray .
He apparently has personally persuaded several so say reputable auction houses up and down the country to sell a great many of these fake items. Many of these auctions have featured in both local and national press (see HERE ) which has aided him to authenticate these paintings and other memorabilia items . The likes of which he has referred all his buyers and collectors to for reference for at least the last 5 years or so . …..
Despite having been informed by reputable collectors and indeed Kray and Bronson family and friends that these items are not genuine and are definitely fake , many auction houses have flagrantly dismissed all advises and proceeded to sell these items which have allegedly totalled many tens of thousands of pounds over the years .
WE BELIEVE IT IS ONLY RIGHT AND PROPER, THAT ALL THESE SEEMINGLY UNSCRUPULOUS AUCTION HOUSES, WHO WE FEEL ARE AS EQUALLY FRAUDULENT AS THIS CONMAN “CLIVE” ….. REIMBURSE ALL DUPED BUYERS OF THIS ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS PILE OF CRAP …..
