A while back we were called to a large autograph appraisal in New Jersey. We met a gentlemen who was a “dealer” and he was looking to liquidate his whole stock. The autographs were supposed to be from the following shows and movies.
The Walking Dead
Sons of Anarchy
also Kesha, Michelle Rodriguez and some others. They each came with COA’s from a company I had never heard of call TRY-CW. They claim to be a TTM autograph company submitting thousands of requests for these graphs. They have singles doubles and cast signed. They sell wholesale hundreds of autographs at a time. Yeah, I am sure they just have thousands of these…. You can buy them by the thousand! This should be red flag numero uno.
The signatures looked wrong so I investigated further it turns out that this company is a scam, they sell to e-bay sellers who think they are getting the real deal when its really only scribble. The worst part is the gentleman who I was dealing with was genuinely ignorant of the scam having been bragging about how many he has sold and how well they do over the course of the month. For more information see the thread I started over at autograph magazine live as the members there have even more information.
The tried and true wisdom if its too good to be true it probably is, still proves true today.
