Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Anyone who have at least half of a brain know that PSA/DNA is a front for a legitimate company that authenticate anything and everything come across their way. No different from autograph authenticator Donald Frangipani who do the same s**t.
Let me remind you, All PSA/DNA  did was took Wayne Bray's idea and  made it legit. Wayne done it first before there were any authentication companies.

Why EBay isn't stopping this you ask? I'll be blunt. Counterfeit autograph memorabilia make EBay rich all the way to the bank$$$ And if there's a doubt left in anyone's mind, Just google search "psa dna scam" and see what pop up. I guess my work is done here. I'll see everybody at the 33rd Annual National Sports Collectors Convention in August. Hasta la vista, baby.

PSA saved me $

AUTHOR: Goyd Robinson - (USA)

This RIP-OFF Special Report has been posted here to warn you about a con Man.

Phil Sears has made a name for himself by purporting to be a "Walt Disney Signature Authority" . He is indeed an authority on "WALT DISNEY SIGNATURES". Mr. Sears has studied Walt's signature extensively and is able to execute the greatest forgeries that the world has ever known..

These forgeries are no match for the well trained eye. I was almost fooled myself until I got a quick opinion from a third party authenticator. The results almost knocked me over. Each item that I submitted were returned promptly as "LIKELY NOT AUTHENTIC".  What this means is that they would most likely not pass their process of authentication.

I have been involved in the collectable industry for more than 20 years..PSA/DNA is one of the largest cons to affect the industry ever..PSA/DNA has caused more damage than any single group to the autograph collectable world..Remember this, the market is now flooded with more fakes/forgeries than ever before and PSA/DNA is responsible for much of it..The baffoons who started PSA/DNA are nothing more than a group of con artists..If you purchase anything that has ONLY the PSA/DNA stamp of approval, the odds that the item is authentic are slim..There are certain people like Frank Caiazzo, Perry Cox, Rich Consola, Phil Sears who can authenticate items and can be trusted, however PSA/DNA, Bob Eaton and his cronies, Chris Morales, Donald Frangipani and anyone associated with these guys should be avoided..Do not purchase ANYTHING from ANY company that relies only on the opinion of PSA/DNA..

PSA DNA is a scam

AUTHOR: Jaeckel - (United States of America)

PSA DNA is responsible for the MASTO AUCTION indiscretion in which the FBI is investigating.  You may note that at some , you will need to remove the PSA stickers and destroy the PSA Certificates , once that PSA is proven unreliable and loses the reputation it enjoys. Did you know that JOHN EATON forgeries are among the exemplars used ? You didn't !!  Well they do !!!!

PSA/DNA vs PSA/DNA ITP...Which is Better?

AUTHOR: Fritz Summons - (United States of America)

The difference between PSA/DNA vs PSA/DNA ITP is that PSA/DNA ITP (In-The-Presence) is actually signed in the presence of the authenticator making it 100% real while PSA/DNA is just an opinion by the authenticator meaning they think it's real but still a little chance it can still be a fake. Making this service of choice for forgers to cover their tails not to be exposed as a fraud. Currently on eBay for sale is about 112,500 PSA/DNA items compare to 800 PSA/DNA ITP items. You do the math. Big discrepancy.

It's far better to pick PSA over any other generic COD (certificate of authenticity) issued by ebayers because of their name recognition but then again unless you don't care if it's real or not so that you can resell it to make more money.
