Ed Grabowski, a philatelist normally known for his work in the French Colonies, has been developing a new philatelic collecting area focused on the international mail order fraud schemes developed by American fraudsters during the early part of the 20th century. He has just published the above-noted article in OPUS XVIII the annual volume of the European Academy of Philately for 2018. Given its association with Hungary, Ed has given the Society for Hungarian Philately permission to post the article on its Website. He can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
