Part 71, Issue # 165 - April 22, 2004
This merits mention in the ?Ripley?s Believe It Or Not?. Dilip Shah has nominated himself (under what capacity?) as Bureau Member of FIP Commission on Fakes & Forgeries. In our view this a direct insult to all acknowledged philatelic experts in the world.
Shah is well known as a person who is not even capable of holding a discussion even on his main exhibit that got him a Grand Prix du Honneuur! He has used the inherited wealth to buy stamp collections, experts to prepare exhibits, juries and awards. He also bought posts in philatelic organizations. All articles published in his name are ghost written for him by various persons.
