More of the jim blackmon story is beginning to surface, and RK can now fairly positively report garry muse is intimately involved.
The story, as we have heard it from several people who claim to be in the know, has it that blackmon and muse got conned by someone posing as extremely wealthy and just as interested in buying some textiles from them.
Seems this person convinced blackmon and muse that a huge amount of money was coming, money which would be then spent on textiles.
But, and here's the con, a classic one at that, this person needed some money to tide them over until the big check appeared and was cleared, or some such nonsense.
Both blackmon and muse have proven themselves to be not the brightest bulbs on anyone's porch and they fell hook, line and sinker for the con, advancing some money to supposedly get alot more.
We have heard these two dumbass fools gave the con-artiste anywhere from 250K dollars to a cool mill.
Then, poof...the con artist disappeared leaving blackmon and muse in the lurch.
Hence blackmon exiting stage right, closing his gallery, and hiding out from many people who are owed.
As for muse, who always has been in the background, he too is not answering calls, or returning them.
How stupid can you get? Apparently not much more than blackmon and muse.
Stay tuned for further details...
NOTE: We readily admit this story is rumor, but it is fact blackmon's gallery is closed and muse will not answer or return calls.
The confidence game played on them has been related to us by three people, and we feel strongly enough about its truth to publish and put our name to it.
Perhaps doing so now will flush out more info? We surely hope so...
