Information and Reference of illegal stamps for Saint Thomas and Prince Islands dating 2006

Flag of Niger

In 2006 Stamperija returns to creating more abusive stamp issues in the name of Sao Tome e Principe. They are considered abusive stamp issues because as has been stated in numerous locations the stamps are authorized by the Saint Thomas and Prince Islands postal authorities but only distributed by Stamperija through their own website for collecting purposes.

The break between 2004 and 2006 is interesting. It is not known why this occured. On the Stamperija site you see that no stamps are offered for the year 2005. No catalogs list anything for that year as well. When you dig deeper though, you find that at least one of the issues being offered in the 2006 section and listed by the catalogs for 2006 have First Day Covers dating in 2005! Here is an image.

Here is a comparison of two Stamperija Owls and Mushrooms FDC's. One is dated 2005 and the other dated 2006. So what gives with that?

Again numerous Stamperija issues made for 2006 have an uncanny resemblance to styles of illegal stamps used in the name of other countries. Here is an example.

Also what is interesting is the Stamperija gold foil stamps produced in this year. They are exactly the same style as the Impressor S.A. 2004 gold foil stamps made in the name of the Congo Democratic Republic and the Feigenbaum (values in CF) illegal gold foil stamps in the name of the Congo Democratic Republic made in 2003! But nobody seems to have been connecting the dots on any of this yes? The major catalogs cheerfully listing them even though postal usage of any of them by St. Thomas and Prince Islands is virtually null....

Since the catalogs are listing them there is nothing we can do except complain and point out their own breaking of their rules for listing stamps. The advise again as stated by many including the FIP and so forth is to avoid them all for this country. Prices asked for any stamps of this time era are highly overinflated and meant to reap profits strictly from collectors not savvy to the problem.

I have found the Colnet online catalog to be very helpful as far as what is being listed in the catalogs.

Some of the illegal stamps are shown in their Cinderella section and noted as such. Still nothing close to what is out there as you will see. The 1992 Sea turtle issue is listed in some catalogs and when compared to other issues of the year the cancelled versions match so I believe it to be placed in error as an illegal stamp.

I have found the Stampworld.com Catalog to be very helpful as well.

2006

In 2006 Montero continued to produce counterfeit illegal stamps made by Mayfair International in the name of Sao Tome e Principe even though it was long understood that they were not honoring anything he produced. Try to find any of them used on real covers and you will find there are none. To this day he and his associates sell them on the online venues and on their private websites in many instances claiming they are "official" issues. To this day in 2021 none have been proven to be anything other than
counterfeit illegal stamps.

Let us see again who is and has been selling these 2006 illegal stamps in the name of St. Thomas and Prince Islands. As of May 31, 2021. I am only using the two terms "sao 2006" and Thomas 2006" for searches thus we are not even counting the deceptive users that don't use country names or years in their titles. Yes, this is only a partial list of users selling these counterfeits but shows the boldest and main dealers.

On eBay.

euroisfil.sa located in Spain. Really is Decimavilla, a notorious illegal stamp dealer.
vad83-4 located in Bulgaria
bestphila01 located in the Netherlands. Still selling the fake EUROPA 2005 stamps as 2006 stamps.

Yes, a lot smaller list for eBay now!
On Delcampe.

Noting this new_boutique user selling the Stamperija issues in massive listings dating older and newer issues as 2006 issues and so forth. This is called "spamming" using deceptive titles to attract buyers. In this case placing a false year in the title. Avoid dealers that use these tactics. Deceiving buyers by using these kind of spamming methods makes a dealer untrustworthy in every regard aside from making themselves a nuisance for buyers searching for specific items.

Again we see the pattern of who started it and who continues to this day to proliferate counterfeit illegal stamps. Saint Thomas and Prince Islands is just one of over 100 countries victimized by this. The main dealers of illegal stamps are involved in many of them and to this day continue. They must be confronted for their crimes.

Here we go!

The following are probably not all the counterfeit illegal stamps that are out there. There are many varieties of them including deluxe souvenir sheets, imperforates, "errors", fake proofs, fake color proof sets, fake First Day covers and so forth. Sadly, one must be extremely wary in all regards to modern stamps of Saint Thomas and Prince Islands. All caused by the greed of a small group of individuals bent on
ripping you off!

Rather than be satisfied with just producing the 2005 counterfeit EUROPA stamps the producer creates yet another counterfeit set for 2006. This one not even recognized in the "home made" WWF Special Issues catalog referenced on the 2005 page. Avoid!

This next "group" of counterfeit illegal stamps was produced and developed in partnership with the Lollini Company (espacelollini.com). This company has been involved for many years in production of counterfeit illegal stamps mainly related on the topic of Space. On their website are hundreds (if not thousands) of illegal stamps in all forms of varieties being offered. Again, a company that makes "home made" catalogs listing these counterfeit stamps as if real. Because this company is highly involved with illegal stamps, it is advised to avoid them like you would avoid a rattlesnake in the desert! These people proudly have their "logo" placed on illegal stamps simply because they do not fear the countries they are victimizing will do anything legal to end their charade. Hopefully after the next congress that will change. Avoid these like the plague!

Here we have a blatant celebration of the production of catalogs by this company. I am certain that if the postal authorities of this country knew about this, they would be highly enraged. Of course Stamperija isn't letting them know anything as they deny any illegal stamps except one have and are being produced in the countries name. This is the kind of "data" the UPU and this Jean-Francois Logette who is presumed the "expert" within the UPU on illegal stamps have gone by.

The production of illegal stamps appears to have ended in 2006 as far as the British producer is concerned. No more can be found in the name of Sao Tome e Principe until the evil Topnimarka.com Russian based counterfeit producers arrive on the scene. They did not appear until 2015 but being even more evil than the British producers, they have "back dated" some of their counterfeits all the way back to 2009!

To this day in 2021 Stamperija holds the contract to make stamps for Saint Thomas and Prince Islands. That abuse will continue until the UPU decides to enforce their rules on stamp issuing best practices and give this country and others that are members using the same practices of abuse the ultimatum to either comply with the rules or get out of the union!
