That's the guy! He's been so quiet lately - must be off his medication.
He just sent me an email with about fifty(!) attached jpegs of his asphalt.
No sales pitch, no name.

I don't know if I would call him slick... obnoxious frauder is what comes to
mind when I think of him.
Yes, that is a total fraud. The only meteorites found in Sweden is ordinary
chondrites (H5 I think) and iron meteorites. The material Göran is trying to
sell is old slag from the iron production in Sweden, you could find rocks
like that over a large area in central Sweden.
If you are as lucky as I am then he will finally send you a message telling
you that he will never answer any of your mail any more... don't know what I
did that got him that furious.. :-)
Maybe it was because I actively work against frauds whenever I see them on
Right now he is trying to sell some of his rocks on a Swedish auction site,
tradera. But so far noone have fallen for it.
I have contacted tradera but so far they haven't done anything about his
I got a rabid letter from the Boggy Creek Collection a couple of months ago
but nothing happened after that, don't know what all these lunar meteowrong
sellers have against me...
Anyhow, it was really fun to read and it was cc:d to the cleaning staff too
but I don't know if they understood the fun part of it. ;-)
/Göran, the one with real lunar meteorites.
