Regular readers know that I have devoted a great deal of effort in fighting fraud in the collectibles hobbies. I am an investigator for the UACC Ethics Board, I've published articles on fraud and forgery, and I've done my best to educate autograph and comic collectors about the various scams and pitfalls that are all too common.
I have recently joined the Network of Disclosure (NOD.)
NOD's pledge is simple: To promote Integrity, Security and Education between the Seller and the Buyer of any comic book.
It's a good organization with honorable goals... you can learn more at the Network of Disclosure website.
I also recommend that you support NOD dealers whenever possible.
