Sadigh Gallery is the biggest scam in the ancient artifact business in the world. Google "sadigh gallery fakes" and "sadigh gallery fraud" and read hundreds of negative reviews regarding this fraudulent business. Please, remove him fro your site. I would think you want only legitimate businesses here.

The easiest way to report this is to click on the Ads by Google link on the site, which will take you to a page where your can report the problem directly. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the link, where you can further information. This way, it goes straight into a queue of sites to be investigated.

If they are not displaying Ads by Google then there is little you can do, and certainly not in this forum.

Thanks Brad, but I have also done a great deal of research on this fake site myself, and there is little anyone can do, other than use the tools available to them. This makes Google aware of the issue and they can then take whatever action they deem necessary - but it will probably take a while.

It is not for me to tell Google what they are to do with their business. I am not an employee.

Indeed it is a scandal.

Google really should make more effort to filter out fraudulent operations such as Sadigh Gallery and not support or condon crooks by carrying their ads. It speaks very badly for Google that they should be so ethically sloppy and allow Google users to be fooled by forgers in this way

However, Sadigh Gallery is a legally registered art dealer in the state of New York, operating with a license. How is it possible that this business is a fraud? A small, family-operated company it is, but if they were dealing fake in the heart of the city of commerce like New York City, they would have been dead by now.
It's so rediculous how people posts defamatory information, safely behind the anonymous nature of Internet, and lie about certain people or business out of personal grudge.

The people think I'm with Sadigh?? ???Based on WHAT REASON?
Wow, this conversation just PROVES the point I'm making...people are making these negative statements based on NOTHING.  wow... lol..... I was only half-suspecting it, but all I needed was just poke a little. 

 This is why I find Internet so hilarious.   Google, you guys should do something about this thread! lol.

All morning long, I've read nothing but negative things about the Sadigh Gallery. The most positive thing I've read was that someone found both genuine AND fake coins in a grab-bin of bronzes. Based strictly on this, one HAS to assume that this may not be the best of places to purchase authentic ancient artifacts from. The Sadigh Gallery site specifically says 'All of our antiquities are guaranteed authentic".  
  What it DOESN'T say is that all of the items they sell are 'antiquities'.
   If so many people are concerned about whether this business is committing fraud, someone should do something. Maybe an expert numismatist, or museum curator- even Zahi Hawass himself! - could make a purchase and inspect the merchandise for authenticity. Something.  If a serious collector just spent $500,000 there and walked off with a few forged Egyptian statues from a sarcophagus, it's up to him/her to sue for restitution. Not Google, Inc. JM2C. :)
  Anyway, what do you want them to 'do' about this thread? It's just people discussing something based on their various points-of-view on the subject. I'm fairly certain that Google has important issues to deal with, like operating a multi-billion dollar business, than a thread about one of the ads they run...

I have been collecting coins for over 20 years and have purchased many from Sadigh Gallery. Due to all of these online negative comments, I had my collection appraised by an expert.

All of the items that were purchased from Sadigh were authentic and a few of them were valued at more than I paid for them.

"is a registered art dealer in the state of New York, operating with a license"

He is not an art dealer.
And one  does not  need to be "registered" to sell fakes as he does.
Further, no license is  actually needed to sell genuine antiquities.

You are being somewhat gullible sorry to say.

I recently purchased an eye of horus amulet, however I am not a scrub when dealing with ancient artifacts. It looked legit to me, but after reading sites like this I had it checked out by my best friend who is an archeologist and historian specializing in ancient Egyptian culture. He also agreed this looked legit. I had the artifact carbon date tested. And it came out to be over 2900 years old. I also went back to the website to see if "my" amulet was still for sale, and it was not. I am not sure with this means and I am not at all saying you guys are wrong, but maybe its a toss of a coin whether you get something real or fake. I just wanted to state that just like the coin guy not all artifacts he sells are fake. However, I will most likely purchase any other add-ons to my collection from my local Egyptian Museum.

I read the entire thread of this discussion and wanted to throw in a bit of my experience as a frequent collector. I have also bought over 10+ from Sadigh Gallery (I usually walk in, it's the best way to see artifacts)and I had asked several of antiquity specialists to appraise them. 12 out of 15 or so were ligit, while others were left for question. Some told me some could be modern. So I called Sadigh and returned them to him with this reason, to which he was sincerely apologetic and refunded me in full amount.  

But if you are a collector, this really is not a surprising matter.
I have bought from other dealers (and mostly famous and respected ones) whose items were little bit of a mix of genuine and not-so.  I think even some experienced dealers make mistakes.
