FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,
Due to a continuing DDoS attack, and a hardware malfunction, FPN is moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with both issues, but unfortunately both take time. Until these both resolve, FPN will continue to be slow. ETA is not available yet. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

Another way scammers are scamming products out of your hands.

Lax attitudes with counterfeits is never a good thing...even if it's not that expensive and is good quality, the counterfeiting industry is usually where these organized criminal rings or terrorists get their funding.

Buying a counterfeit not only costs you money, but may cost you your life.

Piston-filling fountain pens are less likely to be fake.

... there are fake Montblanc piston fillers to be had. You don't have to look very hard.
Buyer beware.

I'm selling a Parker Sonnet vision fonce Chinese Laque fountain pen on ebay (starting bid £49 ~ it was an unwanted gift). How can I make sure I haven't got a fake to pass on ~ what should I look out for. It all looks pretty genuine to me, but would like to be sure I'm selling the genuine article! Cheers, Kim

Have a look at this listing, the seller is actually the item as "Mont Style... blah blah":

And he has a couple of other products listed in the similar fashion, "Tag Style"...
