Mr. Anthony Risi aka Mr. Stargraph is a phony just like his online autograph business ebay store aplusgraphs http://stores.ebay.com/AplusGraph  While it look good on paper whatever he claim he is but when you check the facts it doesn't add up. He claim he done business with Walt Disney. Just a quick call they never heard of him. Mr. Risi is a con man. And good at it. Just the smart ones wont fall for his tricks. Any photo this guy provide as proof is just a cameo photo of the star. Just happening to be where the stars is. When he sold a dead celebrity like CHRISTOPHER REEVE it made me furious. Cmon, leave the dead celebrity alone and let them live in peace than trying to profit from them. You scum! Then you forge MARISKA HARGITAY who play as Det. Benson on Law & Order SVU again and again and sold it over and over. Man, you messing with the wrong lady for sure.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Nameless Complainant

AUTHOR: Mr. Stargraph - (United States of America)

My name is Anthony Risi. I am the owner of the business named in this complaint. Though I am a fan of freedom of speech, I do believe it should be left to those who know what they're talking about. At this time I'd like to just address a few points this nameless complainant made, and not about their creditiblity (for that seems pointless).

I have been collecting autographs since 1983, and soon after turned my hobby into a business. A business that currently has an eBay ID; AplusGraphs. All the autographs I sell on that site were obtained in-person by myself and no one else. I have NEVER sold a forgery, nor have I ever forged an autograph. Some of these facts appear on the "about me" page connected to the eBay store. A page this nameless complainant read incorrectly.

On the page it states several business I have dealt with over the years. The Walt Disney company being one of them. I do not supply this company with product anymore. Retailers come, retailers go. Same with suppliers. Though I am sure the company wouldn't remember me any longer, I don't believe the nameless complainant called the company like he / she said they did. However, at this time I'd like to challenge them to prove me wrong when I say the Attraction Merchandising buyers for Walt Disney World (in Florida) from the early mid 1990s to the early 2000s were;  Peter Boutin (mid 90s to 1999), Lori Pello (2000 to 2002), and Stacy Shepherd (2002- atleast 2003). I believe their personnel department can help you. Then after you do that I will gladly supply you with some invoices and pay stubs I have on file from back then.

The nameless complainant also mentions that I use candid (though they incorrectly use the word cameo) photographs as proof the autograph is authentic. Another non-factual point made. I never use the word "proof" to describe these candid photos. In fact I never make mention of them in the descriptions. I simply use them as an added decorative design to the item listed. I use them only to let the looker / buyer get an idea of what it was like when the item was signed. Most of these candid photographs aren't even taken by me, but by friends of mine who then e-mail me them.

The nameless complainant mentions a Christopher Reeve signed photo I sold. It's sort of funny to me that this nameless complainant would be so offended by my sale considering that they were not the buyer of the item. Nor do they ever mention in their complaint that he / she ever purchased an item from me. I know for a fact the nameless complainant didn't purchase the Reeve photograph, because that person is an informed, intelligent, repeat buyer of mine. One I've dealt with for years. One who does his homework when buying autographs and knows he needn't question or doubt the authenticity of any of my items.

Lastly, I would just like to say to the person who wrote the first rebuttal on this complaint - thank you. It is nice to know that their are some people who are informative and share the facts and their knowledge.

Sincerely;

Mr. Anthony Risi

"Mr. Stargraph"

Unfortunantly another ficticous report by Ex-authenticator: She who fights fiction with fiction

AUTHOR: Steven - (U.S.A.)

So I just figured out on this report that ex-authenticater is actually a woman so I have to change the name to Ex-authenticater: She who fights fiction with fiction.

The reason why I'm commenting on these reports as I have similar reports given by the auther of several reports is to bring facts to the table that are left out by the auther. As I have stated very clearly in previous reports if sellers are selling fakes on ebay or anywhere else they are subjected by the full penaltys of law. As a former collector I highly recommend seeking out authentication services to protect you. If a signature comes back as a fake you can file a claim with paypal or ebay and you will get your back. The documentation that you receive from the authentication company stating that its a fake will hold up in court.Unfortunantly the author of this report fails to mention anything related to this issue. Also for some reason sellers on ebay are targeted at random.

This report in particular is about an ebay member who goes by the user name aplusgraphs. Unfortunantly this report seems to be based on accusations that are meant to smear a reputation. This report does not claim that anyone was ripped off as this site is specificly meant to be reserved for. And intresting enough the sellers feedback indicates no such suspicion by their buyers and the same goes for another ebay member (who also has a report dedicated in their name) who also sells autographs who goes by the name skylinesignatures who mysteriously has buyers with no idication of selling fakes either. So obviously there's an agenda and motive for these reports.

What is sad about these reports is that ripoffreport.com is meant for those who actually lost money who provide facts that can be verified by consumers. You do not have a hair of proof to back up any of your claims and making false stories is the worst case of hipocracy that's here to date and also undermines the reliablility of the site.

Its one thing to give yourself a some what presigious name like ex-authenticater but its another thing to actually know what you're talking about. Based on what I've listed and your intresting personality leads me to feel that you were never an authenticater to begin people.  So once again I award you the ripoffreport.com medal of shame and the title Ex-authenticater: She who fights fiction with fiction
