It's REALLY important - quite a few creators are giving up because they can't take it any more.

Thanks, Gregory. Definitely worth the read and anyone seriously interested in collecting should be aware that supporting crooks means depriving genuine artists and publishers of their income.

Ciro has said he's giving up on creation, as it's a waste of his time.

Thanks Gregory. If I buy a fake tarot I feel cheated. The advises on the website are very good, unfortunately some of the things to look for can't be seen in advance, only when I get the deck. But still is useful. At least I'll pay more attention in the future when ordering a deck.
(are you familiar with the feeling: you see a deck and get excited about it - well I push the "buy it" so fast that I am literary checking what is that I bought only after I bought it! - well that has to change)
