Notice: False email address claiming to be the address of the Federation Secretary

The only email addresses for the President, Secretary or Treasurer of the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California are above. All other addresses are scams from an imposter who claims illegally that he holds an office in the FPCSC and he does not. Right now he is using the address, but he could change it to something else or another provider. Don't be fooled into sending him a dues payment or any private information. For instance: he is asking for the date and amount of your last dues payment. The Federation has that information and does not need to ask.

There seems to be no way to stop this imposer. On October 5th, he has sent out a new email to member clubs using the name "" and again falsely represented himself as Secretary of the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California. He used his real name, "Wes Robbins." But don't be fooled, Wes Robbins is an imposter and does not hold any office in the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California.

Under the new BYLAWS, passed unanioumously at the the Federation meeting on 14 October 2018, the clubs voted to cancel any affiliation with and to remove the "The Stamp Album Society" for cause i.e. deceitful representation by the President, Wes Robbins, as Secretary of the Federation. Wes Robbins is the President and Founder (and maybe only member) of "The Stamp Album Society" but he is NOT, repeat IS NOT, SECRETARY of the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California and never has been.

If you feel you have been a victim of this scam, please contact the President of the Federation, John Weigle, or any of the other officers listed.
