Recently  I wrote blog post about "Stamp collecting facts" in which I mentioned about Malta Gandhi FDC was sold in auction for $1.!! But for $1 you will also get two more 1969 first day cover.!! 

So why you see high price of same item on declampe and eBay.!!?

Following is screenshot from delcampe were seller "phil4u" is selling same cover for $56.!!!

What a great way to rip off.!!! This kind of seller just waiting for someone new collector to buy it by mistake and regret their life.!!

All this high pricing is nothing but glorification of stamps to show the world that indeed stamp collection is great.!!! and they will sell same or similar stamps or philatelic material at little lower price!!

There are more than 10 Malta FDC are available for sale on delcampe.!!!

Following screenshot will show you detail about Malta stamps and FDC including pricing and seller of this  Malta Stamps First Day Cover  who just want to your money by selling some cheap Malta stamps at expensive price.!! .

Do you think some of them are same seller.?

Read following blog and understand how you will get CHEATED.!!

In above blog post you need to see who are the bidders trying to get this. All of them don't want this FDC but trying to increase price.!!!

One of the reason for this high price is that seller don't have to pay to list on delcampe.!! It's like parking lot.!!( Don't have to pay to park when you enter the garage, you only pay when you come out.!!).

So seller list it expensive and wait for buyer to buy (get out).!!!

If some other seller try to sell it cheap increase the price of it by overbidding it and not paying it.!!! They use all ILLEGAL things to make money.!!!

Following is one of the example of PHILATELIC CHEATING.!!

In this auction were stamp collection value was artifically increased and there were following bidders who bidded on it and  I alway try to stay away from them after my experience.!!

Vxvm ---------------> it's me.

Stamps collection in not hobby but it's a big racket or scandal or scam and you need to decode it.!! I already did and I am writing to give some hints to collector community so  they get aware of things going in stamp collection.!!

As you can see from following screenshot that winner of this auction is "Khel10ka". 

He opened new delcampe id just to increase the bid on this item and eventually outbid me and won the auction. But think what he did not paid for this.!!!

Following is the feedback from seller about buyer "Khel10ka"

French to English translation of his feedback 

"no one, attention this person is without interest, refuses the questions, to avoid----------"

Now let's see how dealers/resellers play tricks with you.

Now if you see following screenshot you will get some idea what happen.

Khel10ka started bidding from 153.40 to 190.20 Euros and he won and I lost.!! But "Khel10ka" did not paid.!!! and in this way he increased the price of this FDC and makes it difficult for new Gandhi collectors.

Now if you see "Anusur" started bidding from 125.20 Euros till 153.00.  To me it looks like "Anusur" and "Khel10ka" are same bidders. Also "kad_ss" was trying to sell me Cameroon FDC for 190 Euros.!! 

So now you need you think what happen in this.?

What a great way to cheat in STAMPS COLLECTION. ?

Cheating in stamp collection is nothing new, but when demand is high (by false glorification), cheaters are taking benefits.!!

Now if you see above screen shot you will see all dealers/resellers  trying to bidding on this FDC because some of them are or might be also selling this Cameroun FDC.!!

Here there are actually 3-4 bidders but they are using multiple id in order to increase price.!!! This is common practice in Gandhi Philately by certain dealers and resellers.!! in order to increase stamp collection value.!!

Now you need to decide how to buy , from whom to buy etc when you start collecting Gandhi Philatelic material other wise you will be paying very high price like me.!! So BEWARE !! when you collect stamps.

Eventually seller sold me this FDC for 120 Euros.!!! Yes I bought it at very high price because of this kind of greedy dealers.!!

But currently it will sell under $25.!!! because no one wants this.!! It's a Glorified stamps collection and stamp collection value is artificially inflated by ILLEGAL ways which can be trouble in future.!!

Read following blog post about Cameroun FDC.

Bubble in Cameroun FDC.!!

In today's world there is nothing like stamp collection value or stamp collecting value.!!!

As I mentioned in my previous blog posts about this FDC is not rare and price is dropping and lot of shill bidding to sell this FDC. So avoid it by thinking as a piece of paper.

I can keep my mouth shut about this and I can join with them to increase my value, but I choose other option to publish this and make everyone aware of this so no other Gandhi collectors is cheated.!!!

I hope this kind of blog post about my experience will help you to understand how to protect yourself in Gandhi stamps collection value or any other thematic stamp collection value whether it's Gandhi stamps or First Aerial Mail or King George stamps or King Edward stamps.!!

Same theory or principle is applied by this dealers/collectors.!!

Gandhi stamps club.
