International Day of Non-Violence - Making money on eBay by selling stamps.

United Nations declared 2 October as The International Day of Non-Violence, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.

But greedy collectors/dealers are making their living by selling BOGUS (never exist) Gandhi Philatelic material on this day.

So BEWARE if you are collecting special cancellation  on First Day of Cover or special event cover because it's very easy to make and start selling stamps on eBay.!
  • Make rubber stamp
  • Tell blog authors or weekly/monthly philatelic newsletter to publish that it's  this town is coming up with this cancellation
  • Write about it in stamps forum about this cancellation.
  • Send to some famous award winning stamp collectors/philatelist as gift so they will exhibit in their stamp exhibition or private display during some events.
  • Also send this cover with cancellation who helped  you to make it famous by advertising on their blog/newsletter.
  • Now start selling on eBay.
  • Increase price by SHILL bidding (Cancel bid if you win by complaining eBay that buyer did not pay, so you don't have to pay commission.)
  • Now send it to Handbook authors and Museum as gift so it's more famous.!!

Following is one of the example where some group of collectors from Germany/ India/UK/USA are making money by doing this kind of activity.

So beware what you read or see online or also in various philatelic magazine or even in philatelic museum.

This rubber stamp is currently selling for $60 on eBay seller "ashokmehta1955" from India and member since 2001.!!

Don't you think it's easy to make money on eBay by selling stamps.!!!

It's free to open account so you can open eBay account as many as you want, so BEWARE of it. It's a CARTEL working on this from different countries where they help each other to ship their philatelic gems.!!

Click following link if you want this Philatelic GEM of Gandhi for just $60 (3800 Indian Rupees).!!. It's still available so grab before it run's out of your hand.!!


It's lot of money even if you can sell one of this.!!

So avoid collecting rubber stamps on First Day Cover or Special events cover such as Birthday or Anniversary of Gandhi because it's nothing but forgery unless it's issued by government with proper proof.

Stamp Collectors/dealers will go to any extent to make money and they don't care of anybody's feelings. This BOGUS special cancellation was made on 2nd October, 2009 on occasion of international non-violence day as a protest against the massacre which took place on 11th March 2009 in Winnenden High School in which 16 students and teachers were killed.!!

I contacted local stamp collectors and philatelist, but no one in Winnenden knows about this special cancellation and they were all surprised that it was made to protest against massacre.!!

Just to make money they will find out any cause to justify  and make this Bogus cancellation!!

Now we all know that following is one of the classic BOGUS philatelic material made (not issued) on October 2nd from Winnenden Germany was issued in 2009 with Gandhi image and illegal use of Emblem of India.

Here 2 issues needs to take care of.

1) Illegal use of Emblem of India
2) Illegal use of Gandhi Image for forgery.

If you draw cartoon insulting Emblem of India then you will be arrested, but no one cares about this illegal use of India's Emblem.!!

If you are not aware of this BOGUS cancellation was made (not issued) on 2nd October to celebrate International Day of Non Violence then click following link to read about my investigation along with proof from Germany Postal department.

This Bogus rubber stamp cancellation cover (Extremely Rare) is still available on eBay seller "ashokmehta1955" for $60. Following is the link if you want to buy it.!!

If you sell some other forgery item such as Rolex watches or Burberry/Coach ladies purses then eBay will shutdown your store and also take legal action by blocking paypal account and all kind of legal issue, because this multinational companies want to stop this forgery item so their brand is not affected.

But in stamp collection, no one cares.!! So you can make forgery without any legal issue and still make your living by selling this kinds of extremely rare stamps philatelic material, which don't even cost more than $10 to make rubber stamp and just start applying it not only on envelope, but also to postal receipt or international reply coupon or letterhead or stamp used abroad etc.!!

Don't you think it's easy to make money by selling rare stamps cancellation !? I think so as maker of this cover did not spend more than $1 to make it and now asking for $60.!! (BTW : It came down from $100 selling price.!!)

But while doing detail in-depth research on this special cancellation I was surprised when I saw same hand writing (now I am also hand writing verification expert) on different register cover from Patna, India send to same town in Germany.

So I am not sure whether this BOGUS special cancellation rubber stamp was made in Germany or made in Patna.?

Also you can compare hand writing in following image of register cover send from Patna to 71409, Schwaikheim and other words and alphabets.!!

According to my assumption, I think BOGUS philatelic material of Gandhi was made on October 2nd might be from Patna, because we can consider register cover with label on Taj Mahal stamp from India might be genuine, or same person might have written from both places.

Or might be from Schwaikhein, Germany who might have send hand written cover to Patna for register mail and mailed it from Patna, G.P.O post office.

To me it looks like there are multiple people(gang) are involved in this Bogus philatelic cover in multiple countries were one make this cover, some famous collector will glorify by exhibiting in stamp exhibition, and someone will sell it at very high price!!

Following is one more example and you can find lot more. Let me know if you need to see wide range as now I am also hand writing verified expert and I need to keep all that screenshot I see it on eBay or Delcampe auction site.!!

This are not rare stamps as you can see 4 covers are already mentioned here with different address of Winnenden & Schwaikhein in Germany and there is rubber stamp out there!!

Also not sure whether owner of this address know's that they received this kind of mail or  this was stolen from mailbox in Winnenden & Schwaikhein, or it's just write down any address near by and start selling such as we see all the time post to Prime Minister of Nepal or Prime Minster of India.!!

This BOGUS cancellation with illegal use of Emblem of India and Gandhi image issued from Winnenden to celebrate Non-Violence of Winnenden high school massacre which occurred on March 11th, 2009. Do you think it make sense to issue this kind of cancellation?

So what do you think about origin of this BOGUS rubber stamp?

Patna or Winnenden ?

Don't you think Gandhi Stamps Collection is suspense where world famous detective Sherlock Holmes will also get confused.!!

It's easy to make rubber stamp and claim it as unique material by even winning the medal.!!
