Recently I watched a show on the history channel which biographied one of the greatest counterfeiters even known, Mark Hofman. As a pre-med student in Salt Lake City he claimed to find a letter which came to be known as the “White Salamander Letter” which discredited the Mormon Church. He continued to find important Mormon documents which he was paid handsomely for. Later, he moved to Philadelphia and Washington where he discovered letters from our famous forefathers. Although, he was very efficient in his work, experts claim that he worked off the emotions of the people because he knew what people wanted and he would give the what they wanted.

One observer “Mark Hofmann was a forger and shrewd observer of human behavior. Like any good con man, he knew part of his success manufacturing and selling fake historical documents depended on willing victims –– people who wanted to believe his claims.”
