DISHONEST AND FRAUDULENT STAMP COLLECTORS OR STAMP DEALERS

 

I have been a stamp collector for almost 30 years. My experience with other collectors or stamps dealers is mainly positive. However, especially in recent years I noticed that there are quite a few collectors who would not pay after receiving stamps from me.

Since there is not much one can do about, I have decided to list them here and use this as a means to warn other collectors.

CASE 1: STAN SHIH-JUNG LEE

 

I got in contact with Mr. Lee through Ebay back in 2004.  He is originally from Taiwan and lives now in the US. Surprisingly, he is the only dishonest Taiwanese I have ever met. Maybe, the rough US environment spoilt his character?

 

His Ebay user ID is: bibi9152002

 

Current e-mail address: bibi9152002@yahoo.com

 

Current address:

 

Shih-Jung Lee
P. O. Box 14064
Fremont, CA 94539
USA

 

As of  April 22nd 2006, he has a very positive feedback of 98% (5 negative comments) on Ebay. Surprisingly, he quite often withdraws bids.

 

I have supplied him with stamps a couple of times. He wrote what kind of stamps he wanted, I sent them to him and he eventually paid (e.g. by cheque). In December 2005, he must have somehow realized that I would no longer be useful to him. That is why he would not reply my e-mails (directly or through Ebay) and would not pay for the last shipment of stamps, which fortunately is only $US 10.

 

BE AWARE OF STAN SHIH-JUNG LEE!

CASE 2: ANDREAS FISCHER

 

Again, I got into contact with Mr. Fischer through Ebay. He is from Germany, used to be stamp dealer and deals now with various items (toys, ATM, properties???). His website (in German) is found at:

.

 

His Ebay user ID is: toyplayer1969

 

Current e-mail address: BASF-FISCHER@onlinehome.de

 

Current address:

 
Andreas Fischer
Emster Str. 57
58093 Hagen
GERMANY

 

 

As of of  April 22nd 2006, his feedback on Ebay is not too good (95% positive feedback, 35 negative comments). Obviously, he did not send items paid for a couple of times. And it seems that it is often impossible to contact him through E-mail or telephone.

 

Since I knew him for many years (I used to buy a few items from his company back in 1993), I asked him for an exchange of stamps. He seemed to be interested. So, I twice sent him stamps worth $US 190 and $10 for exchange. After I sent the items by R-mail, he would not reply my e-mails or phone calls anymore. Fortunately, he refused to take the $US 190 registered parcel and it went back to me. After all, I only lost the $US 10 shipment and the postage for two items.

 

BE AWARE OF ANDREAS FISCHER!
