Mate, its a lesson learnt. But do some research if your going to buy stuff like this. Look what a google search has brought up.

If your going to buy autographs, either get them first hand for a reputable seller. :wink:

No one is laughing mate. Autographs are a minefield and are probably the most forged thing collecting wise. A big part of the problem is new collectors coming in and not doing research. Trust me, you don't need to know much about autos to know that Fisher is fake, it s possibly the worst example I've ever seen in my years collecting graphs.its got absolutely nothing right. When the new movies were mentioned more and more fakes flood the market purely because some people want the 'in' autographs right away and get stung. I've seen examples of autographs where there are only a handful in existence ( Maurice Bush -Dengar ) comes to mind. People will not show such pieces online because of the danger of fraud/replicated pieces. I own a Jack Purvis on a non Star Wars photo, rare as rocking horse white in itself but anything SW related you are talking thousands. Even I need help with authentication sometimes, although I know enough about 95% of common graphs some do leave me stumped.

Its a learning curve bud.

He wasn't aware it was fake and did ask that first in all fairness.

Shrek, no one is laughing at your misfortune, mate, and certainly not everyone. They're laughing at the item and the creator of the item. You had some words of smpathy from a number of people but have chosen to take the banter to heart. This is the internet, humour happens even in much darker situations than this. Have you had it long? I take it you didn't pay by Credit Card or PayPal? CCs you can claim back for up to 12 months without any problem at all and PP have now extended cover to 6 months after payment.

Good advice from Grant and Lee, both have plenty of experience in the autographs world, Lee in particular.

Only when prompted, mate. But like you said, he had no idea it was a duffer and there was no dishonesty involved.
