Group Description

This list is dedicated to discussing effects of online auctions (and other Internet venues) selling forgeries, fakes, altered and misrepresented items on the avocations of collecting stamps, coins, antiquities and other collectibles.

Topics may include the need for regulation and legislation to protect collectors from Internet fraud, the methods and modus operandi of those who sell fake and misrepresented collectibles, news and events related to fake collectibles, ways in which venues on which fakes are sold could be modified/improved, and anything else that tends to discredit the perceived authenticity of stamps, coins, antiquities and other collectibles. Basically anything to do with the law as it applies to fraud and authenticity issues in online trading of stamps, coins, ancient artifacts and other collectibles is on topic.

The definition of "collectibles" for this group does not include autographs, sports memorabilia, trading cards, Franklin Mint productions and similar items, and in general anything intentionally created to be sold as a collectible.

Lively discussions are encouraged but extended flames, abusive language, rants and repetitious postings are not. Sales notices and other commercial postings are not allowed, please see our FAQ page for details: http://www.classicalcoins.com/efakes.html
