Fight illegal stamps

Collector's Target is waging war against illegal stamps. It cautions, "Be aware of what you buy, and from whom you buy your stamps."

According to their Web site, "In many cases, the illegal 'stamps' more often than not are issued in long sets, may be 8-10 'stamps' or more, and may be also 3 or 4 different miniature sheets. The illegal 'stamps' are very colourful and look 'delicious', more often than not they are bigger in size than the legal stamps issued in that country."

"The illegal stamps are 99% thematic, and the themes of the stamps has usually nothing at all to do with the country, territory, or island itself (what does a stamp featuring a Swedish winter rally champion have to do with a tiny, tropical island?)."
