Forged Banksy – a word from the wise

Received this ealier today…

PRODUCT WARNING

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It has come to our attention that a number of forged Banksy prints are currently in circulation. These include ‘Rude Copper’, ‘Laugh Now…’, ‘Happy Choppers’, ‘Girl With Balloon’ and ‘I Fought The Law’. They are screenprinted, numbered and embossed with a replica POW stamp.

The forged prints have been allocated print numbers registered to specific retailers that POW supplied some years ago and are sold alongside bogus receipts from these retailers. Only a handful of these have so far come to our attention and they are easily identified as fake by anyone familiar with POW products, but please be aware that buying prints on the secondary market at bargain prices should be undertaken with extreme caution.

We have passed this matter onto the relevant authorities and are, as always, happy to check the provenance of your print if you contact the office.

Thanks
