Memphis Stamp Collectors Society
WARNING! The American Philatelic Society has received a report of a phone scam perpetrated by individuals who claim they are part of the APS staff. The individuals in question represented themselves as part of the American Philatelic Society and requested payment in advance in exchange for selling the collection of the man who received the call. The phone numbers provided by the perpetrators were connected to a fake APS voicemail recording.
The American Philatelic Society has been in contact with local law enforcement to address this report. If you have experienced a similar scam, please contact Ken Martin at the APS.
To remind our members and stamp collectors across the country: the APS does not purchase stamp collections. The APS will never make an unsolicited call or offer to members or non-members, or pressure you to make an immediate decision or payment. All official APS correspondence occurs through the phone number (814) 933-3803 and email domain stamps.org.
