Ninety nine percent of stamp collectors and dealers are really good people. Yet there are a few scoundrels in our hobby's history, and if you want to hear about the incredible life of one of the philatelic bad guys, watch this Stamp Chat for an exciting treat. "The Life of a Philatelic Swindler" is an amusing, fast paced presentation given by author Rick Barrett.
