Or they circulate arrant nonsense about this board disguised as some kind of 'newsletter' or info sharing service.
If you receive this type of communication or request that involves this board or members on it, please report it to Admin immediately - firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not publish it on the board or you may very well be yourself in breach of "The Rules".
Firstly - let them sign up themselves if they are so interested in responding factually to anything others have posted here.
Secondly - if what you post here is full of total fiction and lies as one request we saw today was, the member posting it could have been sued for defamation by the members he was asked to name. NOT smart. Do NOT fall for that. If someone you did not know asked you to carry a kilo of fine white powder through customs as a "little favour" - would you also do that?
Thirdly - if you receive any such approaches via any means please forward it immediately to email@example.com and we will take a look at it.
All members are reminded they post here at all times subject to "The Rules" - clearly clickable atop all pages.
Please take a read of them if you are unsure of the actions to take re any approaches made to you -
This board has seen DOZENS of crooks and shonks selling stamps worldwide on ebay exposed and ran out of town.
MANY have been totally closed down by ebay based on the ammo we have assembled right here. Many others have "seen the light" and stopped selling this junk forever.
Either way both results are a victory for the hobby, and yes, some folks often play VERY dirty when it looks like the Carnival Is Over .. and the Bunny Money Drip-feed is coming to an end. Let ME deal with that. I have broad shoulders and am not readily fazed. And I have a superb lawyer. 8)
Some of these folks are desperate and will say and do ANYTHING to try and survive.
On the other hand, sellers offering stamps on ebay with accurate and honest descriptions have nothing to fear from this Forum.
Indeed many of our members are incredibly honest and highly reputable and world respected ebay sellers, and we have a thread for members to add their current auctions for others to see, as you know then you are very likely dealing with someone you can trust:
