Fight against illegal stamps SOSSI has joined with the Philatelic Webmasters Organization (PWO) and the World Association for the Development of Philately (WADP) in the Web League Against Illegal Stamps (WLAIS).  Our purpose is to provide Scout topical collectors the means to make an informed decision on stamp purchases.  Visit our special SOSSI Fakes & Forgeries section for more information.
