I am sure most of us know that trading with Trogonoptera and Troides needs
CITES permit.

For all of you who don't speak Spanish, but speak English, I translated 
Jose's letter for you. Hopefully I didn't make any mistakes....

Jose Garcia's letter:

I want to warn everyone who is interested in the purchase of tropical 
Lepidoptera (especially Ornithoptera and Troides), that an individual named 
DAVID MARCO STEM of Barcelona has sent by mail to all the members of SHILAP 
an attractive list of species for sale. This person is, in fact, A THIEF,
demands payment prior to shipment, and soon disappears, sending empty 
packages without reimbursement.

If anyone has received his list, and is negotiating with this scoundrel, 
don't send money unless you wish to be swindled. 

I hope this message prevents some swindling, although in Spain I am certain 
that several people have already been affected.

Jose Garcia
