Welcome to SCAMTIME, a true crime podcast where your hosts Stephanie and Karen talk about all sorts of cons and frauds, bamboozlers and hoodwinkers, and fun hoaxes.
In this episode, Karen throws the book at archivist Greg Priore, and Stephanie paints a picture of prodigy artist Marla Olmstead. 400 year old bibles and 4 year old artists. Would you commit a crime if you knew no one would be hurt and you'd probably never be caught? And is the scammer in Marla's story actually the media?
A practical joke on a fig leaf!
