  • Not fake as in forgery, but fake as in 'made by Russian criminals to make money from unknowing collectors'.
    There are hundreds of different illegal stamps with the name Rwanda.
    And not only Rwanda. Many African coutries have been 'victimized' by those criminals.

  • Basically the issues since 2010 for Rwanda are all considered illegal stamps according to the U.P.U Circular posted in August of 2012 by the Rwanda Postal Administration. The Currency for Rwanda is FRW not F as portrayed in the imaged set here. This is a basic clue as to whether the stamps are legal or not.

    This is taken from one of the Rwanda Circulars.

    The administration has proof that the distributors include companies based in Great Britain and Belgium and at least two Internet sites in the United States. This leads it to believe that the companies in question may be involved in producing the illegal stamps. Its efforts to track down the counterfeiters will continue, so that they can be brought to justice.

    We as collectors, dealers and information sources need to get these entities exposed for what they are. could be a great help in the fight against these entities. Please understand that there are powerful forces behind the production of these illegal issues. Some are leaders in the stamp community and rank high in certain societies. They will not go down without a fight. Are YOU willing to join the battle??
