Dear Banknote Collectors,
On Apr. 24, 2005, I paid the above mentioned gentleman US$275 via pay pal and sent to him some notes of mine worth US$550 bringing the total value paid by me to US$825.
He was supposed to send me the following:
1] EGYPT 50 pound 1945
2] EGYPT 100 pound 1945
3] EGYPT 50 PIASTRES 1914 VF
He never sent the items.
I contacted Paypal, they investigated my claim and Paypal decided in my favour but could only help me recover the amount paid through Paypal (US$ 275).
My problem is:
1] He has NO balance with Paypal now.
2] I have also sent him notes worth US$550
I have contacted all banknote dealers I know in Turkey to mediate but with no positive results.
If anyone has any other information about this thief, please send it in to update this post in order to protect other potential victims.
I appreciate your feedback.
Yours in hobby,
This individual (farbod) sells counterfeit items on ebay
As a friendly notice and reminder, be aware that some sellers on ebay attempt to sell counterfeit collector items while misrepresenting them as genuine. Visit my store at eBay to view an item sold to me through ebay by a seller with id: (farbod). Do NOT buy it or any similar items
Read carefully in the description my experience. I appreciate your feedback and support to protect our hobby. He has been selling 1000's of FAKE notes on ebay.. has been taken to court at least once.. has been reported to ebay hundreds of times, ebay does nothing... go to Armen Hovsepian's website www.iranbanknotes.com to see more on this issue. I appreciate your feedback.
Yours in hobby,
