I find it quite astonishing that anyone ( irrespective of their reputation, dealer or not) has purchased/is selling on/or is allowing to be graded, items that have a dubious background, even if not proven a seller with a reputation, hell anyone for that matter, who has an item they have doubts about, go back to the community and ask advice with pictures of items, that way they have a footprint of back up in the community.
It all boils down to being decent, honest and upfront and not looking for a back door/way out.
My point is, if all of the people that had been scammed, had doubts, but quickly offloaded the items in their collections and passed the issue on to others, then the whole sad affair created by Glanville would not have come to light, therefore again, I have to say a massive Thankyou to those that have unselfishly investigated, proven, and brought to light all of these issues for the good of the community.
In my book anyone that defends wrong doing or turns a blind eye to wrong doing need to have a think about their outlook on being a part off the collecting community.
I am a big believer in what goes around comes around, and I and many many other people have something called a conscience.
There are allways ifs, buts and maybes in life, but the decisions you make and how you treat others is down to you and you alone, there are no free passes in life, wrong is wrong simple as that.
