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!

Here's the latest. I heard from a wonderful man that spent his hard earned money at a charity auction. He figured -- it's a charity, what can go wrong? He spent a few thousand on this. Look at how horribly bad these forgeries are:

Here are a few other items sold from Anthony Nurse that customers sent me, stating that they are fakes:

I like how an "in person collector" got a signature on it in Hollywood, and the rest in New York. Ya know, I don't think people realize that...just writing the date and location of the celebrity cuts it anymore. We can all find out when they were on Letterman, or when the tabloids said they were at a certain restaurant. If this guy has items these stars signed for charity (as he claims on his website...that he has a "relationship" with the celebs....the celebs would have no problems holding up the items, and Anthony Nurse would be standing right next to them. Instead, the pictures of Nurse are all from places like Borders Book Store, when ANYBODY could go stand next to them and have a photo, and the bookstores almost ALWAYS say "one item per person" and "they are only signing the book." So...how is it somebody contacted me and said he had a second Clapton signed guitar at an auction? Clapton hasn't signed guitars in years (because of a charity problem). Yet Nurse seems to have an unlimited supply of them.

The above images are just an example of the awful fakes people buy and then try to sell on. All of these are for sale here in New Zealand and all from Autograph Store.

I've been watching that site a long time. Everything I have ever looked at was, in my opinion, not authentic.

I was just talking about that site with my in-person collector friends. We find it disgusting and reprehensible that he deceives the public especially charities. There ought to be a special place in hell for people like him.

I for one am glad you are moving on this. We were all wondering what could be done about him. His site comes up pretty high in search and none of us have any contacts at the FBI. I am sure just a simple visit by a Field Agent letting them know they are being watched would shut them down real quick.

Its funny really, I bet they gave no thought to the fact that if caught and prosecuted they might end up in prison. Who is dumb enough to want to trade temporary money for their freedom? Oh wait most any idiot criminal.
