well.. i tell you what i know although its not very much...
in 2007 Aftenposten (one of the biggest norwegian newspapers) runned a story about a christmas card scam. Apparently a christmas card painted by handicapped people sold for millions (sales,donations etc). But where did the money go?
the same in Denmark
apparently this firm was behind it: http://www.vdmfk.com/
and he is behind it... the owner is his daughter.
the norwegian article is here: http://www.aftenposten.no/amagasinet/article1570415.ece
if you want to translate it on the web or something.
