This is a Hostage Auction for the last Burning Bank

Alex Schaefer has brought this upon himself.  A little back story… Alex had a perfectly good "NO STRINGS ATTACHED" relationship with a reputable art dealer.  Sounds perfect right?  Alex gets an email "Got any Burning Banks? there's a guy who wants one!".  Alex looks and finds there's one left.  He lets the art dealer know, "There's one left and there ain't gonna be any more…do they want it?"  The art dealer gets back "They want it!  $3000! we split it two ways!" 

$1500 for the last Burning Bank.  Like life, what a sad ending to an amazing moment in history. 

That is when Alex schaefer thought he'd had enough (and, by the way, when the KGO had to hijack the situation)

Alex emailed back and said, "ahahaha he wants it, eh?  good.  Tell him I've has lost my mind.  It's $5000 or he gets a video of the painting burning to ashes and I know just the guys to do it."  The Art Dealer said "I can't do that" and wouldn't play along.  The Art Dealer said, "Hey, how about you get a $2500 cut of the sale how about that?" But that led Alex in his fevered mind to the delusional conclusion that possibly the original "offer" had not been $3000 at all.  He doesn't know what is real anymore? He doesn't know how or what is this happening...

The KGO had to step in.  The Last Burning Bank is too precious an asset for an IDIOT like Alex Schaefer to handle anymore so we've stolen if from him for his own good. 

But don't get us wrong, he still had a brilliant idea, but of course like an impetuous Fool he forgot one thing: ransom

And since this is the Art World this is a Hostage Auction!
At the end of it all this painting will either be sold or tortured, incinerated, and destroyed all documented on gruesome video.

Starting now and extending for a period no longer than 50 days and 50 nights, if you are willing to buy this painting for $5000 then you join the Inner Circle that will participate in an online auction.  If there is no collector in the World willing to pay at least $5000 (or more?) for this painting at the end of 50 days, then it's an apropos fiery ending for the Last Burning Bank

If you desire this painting, post in the comments or send an email to alexhsch@gmail.com

Art Hostage Crisis, the last Burning Bank has been Kidnapped!

I thought I'd lost this painting but I got this photo in my email today..  It doesn't look good it wasn't lost it's been kidnapped!  I don't know many details about what the fuck is going on at the moment, but some group going by the name KGO is responsible.  the text of the message just said "you had a good idea, ransom demands to follow, we see you"
