BEWARE: An individual or group has been reported to APS as using the name of past APS President, John Hotchner in a scam requiring a substantial cash deposit (which is then stolen) as basis for help in selling a collection. Members should be on guard against any such offer. There is no circumstance in which a cash deposit for being bonded should be required to sell your collection.
The APS complaint process helps resolve disputes between members and provides the Society a means of enforcing its Code of Ethics. While this is one member benefit we hope you'll never have to use, the APS is proud to provide this service to organized philately.
