Hello everybody,

I just want to thank you very much for your assistance concerning this case - as we all know, there are many black sheep out there we have to care about. And I also think that it is important to anybody of us to speak out clearly, what may prevent any collector from making major mistakes and losing a lot of money. There is this Swedish guy, this Australian guy and now another Russian guy, who all try to severely damage our hobby to make some quick cash...

during the last time, I opened several cases for non-received items at Ebay; during their investigation they found out that there is something big going on concerning the cheating of collectors of Soviet militaria. There is a mafia - like structure of "sellers" who do open accounts, providing each other positive feedbacks for cheap items only to be able to sell and then they run the big business in offering "big ticket" items for thousands of dollars ... they do not own! Also they try to persuade to pay to non-verified Paypal accounts or foreign bank accounts and refuse to meet personally for their "own safety". They robbed tens of thousands of dollars from the collector`s family during the last months using this method. Here come some names: "antikvar2016ussr", "awards2016ussr", "nagradaussr" - but there are far, far more. Their accounts usually are located in Germany, Russia and Australia. Shipping always is mentioned to be done from "China / Hong Kong / Taiwan" - buyers beware! If something smells fishy, don`t think, just run!

Best regards!
