When does bait and switch become fraud and lies in customer service? Story about art - Alec Baldwin - and greed.
Reading an article about a New York art broker, a painting, an artist, an actor and a few attorneys left me shaking my head. As a former art gallery owner, I was stunned at the blatant lies told by a few people to their client under the guise of wanting to please him. Alec Baldwin is the actor here. The article is "Paint and Switch?"
An excerpt follows:
“I thought she had made my dream come true,” Mr. Baldwin said. Instead, he said he believed that Ms. Boone, frustrated that the collector would not agree to sell, persuaded Mr. Bleckner to take an unfinished work from the same series, finish painting it and sell it to him without saying a word.
