Did You Purchase an Item from Anthony Nurse or Charity Fundraising Packages? Please Let me Know...

I saw items at an auction recently that I believe to be forgeries. I'm in the process of trying to figure out if they are real or not, and would like to hear from others on experiences they've had with Anthony Nurse or his company -- Charity Fundraising Packages.

I remember being at a party 15 years ago, and somebody had a signed "Hotel California" album by the Eagles. It was fake, and I knew it was. I asked the guy how he acquired it. He told me an auction for his sons school. I didn't have the heart to tell him.

So, when I saw another fake Hotel California album at this auction, it made me cringe.

Anyway...please contact me if you purchased a forgery or ANYTHING from this company -- and I'll see if Steve and Roger can help me authenticate these items, and we'll move into the next steps involved (if, in fact, they are forged items).

It's bad enough if forged items are sold to unsuspecting people, but to do it in the name of a charity is just despicable. 

(and a website that shows generic pictures of bands signing for 50 fans doesn't prove anything...neither does a photo of Anthony Nurse standing by Rod Stewart at a book signing).

At book signings, they don't let you bring albums, cds, or guitars. They sign THE BOOK ONLY. And having a photo taking with somebody, doesn't make any autographed item you sell "authentic." Most people don't realize that.

Anyway....contact me at: joshboard87@gmail.com

Thank you!

I just googled "Charity Fundraising Packages." They're still up but the URL is now www.cfr1.org/. Your blog is #3 under that search term.

Here's the Star Wars "cast-signed" poster you couldn't upload. Sorry for the hassle:

The strat above is really bad. Is it supposed to be the stones and Jimmy Page?

I'm posting this for Josh because the site hasn't been playing well with him recently:

Josh was contacted by someone who sent him these images of lots in a fundraiser Anthony Nurse's company supplied:

Ok, is this the New Jersey Autograph store? I won an auction on that site, and sadly didn't ask anyone about it before bidding. And found out the autographs were fake from a friend if mine.

Last night, I was contacted by a charity who had received items from the above companies.  One of the buyer contacted me and ask me for my opinion.  I informed him of this thread.  Can someone please email me asap at George@bwunlimited.com please?

I've been talking to a guy that also got duped by this crooks. He got some Charles Shultz drawings an Abbey Road signed album, and a signed Rolling Stones...as well as a signed McCartney guitar. Seriously, how does this charity have so many Abbey Road albums? Well, by forging them, that's how.

The charity that sold them to him years ago, won't refund his money They say "nobody else complained, you're the only person. And if they're fake, well...we got suckered just like you." 

Yeah, but...the only problem with that is, the charity got their money. The buyer got fake items.
