How to spot a Crazy Redd fake

Posted by admin on December 18th, 2013

Crazy Redd is a crafty fox. He has fleeced villagers out of their hard-earned bells for over a decade and, given the decidedly lacklustre policing of Animal Crossing, he’ll surely be in business for many years to come. So, how do you stop Redd from getting the best of people? You educate them!

Redd’s counterfeit artworks might look genuine at first glance, but look closer and you’ll see that each has an error that distinguishes it from genuine works of art that Blathers will approve of. Let’s take a look at the legitimate works of art, and what to look out for to ensure you only purchase the real deal!
