CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC ILLEGAL STAMPS
2001

Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Congo Democratic Republic

Flag of Congo Democratic Republic

The following images are of illegal stamps produced for Congo Democratic Republic. Please remember that the producers of these illegals are not only greedy, they are crude and sometimes disgusting which is the nature of these people.

At the time of creating the pages for Congo Democratic Republic I have found the WNS system to be completely unreliable as a source because only two stamps are listed on the site for 2002 and then.....nothing.

The Universal Postal Union WNS website

I have found the Colnet online catalog to be helpful although there are "conflicts" between what is listed there and what is on the Stampworld Catalog. I consider Colnet to be the most reliable online source at this time.

The Colnet Online Catalog for Congo Democratic Republic

I have found the Stampworld.com Catalog to be helpful as well although again as stated there are "conflicts". they list stamps that are described as illegal stamps by the 1997 circular simply because Michel catalog (known to be influenced by dealers) is listing them.

The Stampworld Online Catalog for Congo Democratic Republic

Or use a respectable catalog like Scott or Stanley Gibbons. Do not listen to these dealers trying to convince you they are something other than illegal stamps.

You will find the styles and designs of the following illegal stamps completely different.

Here we go!

Many of the following illegal stamps can be found as imperforates and as color proof sets as well. Some exist on fake First Day Covers too.
Most times now (2019) the souvenir sheet sets and sheetlet sets are sold individually. Many times the stamps have been removed from the sheetlets and souvenir sheets. All of these "tactics" are used to avoid detection by UPU circular descriptions.

Sellers that call these "private", "locals", "cinderellas", "unauthorized" are deceiving you. They are illegal stamps produced by a stamp dealer that is bent on ripping you off! Some sellers state "we offer them because they are on the market". Well how about you use a different dealer because that seller is "on the market"? If the stamp societies, auction sites and all other venues kicked these sellers off of their sites then they would have to comply or lose their ability to sell anything.

The following images are free for the use of all to use to alert the public to them. If anyone wants to make a public list of users on eBay, Delcampe and elsewhere who are selling these issues....fine by me since the UPU, PWMO and others appear to have given up or have not been updated in years.

If you have purchased any of these stamps from a dealer or if that dealer offers them, you should avoid that dealer! You will only be supporting illegal stamp makers who are only ripping you off.

2001

In 2001 the production of counterfeit illegal stamps increases significantly again. The majority being produced by our favorite UK based stamp dealers.

In 2001 the Congo Democratic Republic issued quite a few more stamp issues according to the Scott and Stampworld catalogs. None have subject matter relating to the Congo. The Colnet catalog only lists a few of them. This is because a stamp agency like Impressor S.A. got the contracts. Apparently the Congo Democratic Republic did not learn their lesson the first go around with stamp agencies like this. Then again because of the political turmoil within the country, corruption was rampant within and therefore, of course that corruption effected the postal system as well.

The U.P.U. and many others consider these to be "abusive" issues. Basically never sold in the Congo they were only available through the stamp agency and the dealers they were in collaboration with. Noting that Impressor S.A. was both stamp agency and printer which breaks U.P.U. rules for philatelic best practices.
Impressor S.A. is not a security printer by any means.

Following are images of the said to be issued stamps according to Scott Catalog. Try to find them on commercially used covers....
