Wait so the brothers knew the painting was a forgery, but did the Sheik know? Cause if the Sheik thought it was real and tried to pay for it with fake money, then the Sheik is also a scammer. Either way shouldn't he be in jail for printing Swiss francs?

Like to be able to pass as real money the Sheik had to have a decent printing plate and ink. That seems like a bigger story than just a few bros selling a fake painting. Who gave the Sheik those tools to print legitimate-looking money? Is Switzerland gonna get angry at this dude printing at-will? Is anyone going to do business with a Sheik in the future? Their reputation is tarnished now in terms of doing honest business.

So many questions
