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 don't think I deserve them, but thanks for the kind words. Hopefully my life insurance company doesn't see them.

No problem, Steve.  I'll retract what I said :)

Meanwhile...another thing about this "authenticator" Michael Ciravolo.  His stated background on the RM real site can leave the impression that he did the analysis of the notes from the NYC Zodiac killer.  

The analysis of NY Zodiac communications came from profilers and psycholinguists including the late Syracuse university professor Murray Miron.

Hi Josh

What an epic thread - brilliant in every way! I thought I would share this blog from davidbowieautograph.com about our friends Charity Fundraising. Andy the webmaster is not a member here but asked my to pass on his grateful thanks to you and Steve C.


Best wishes
