I am sorry for crossposting, but the easiest way to inform you about man who doublecrossed our coleagues.
So, take care of youreself and if you have some answer please send it directly to my address not to the whole list.
My name and address:
Boze Kokan , primust at st.tel.hr
So, I am in contact with few people who had very bad experience with certain person named as:
Dr. Mohammad F. Haq
1066 Civil Lines
This person asked for help all over the world. In his messages was sad story (burnt museum and all collections, needed to establish new collections, asked for help) and he doublecrossed people who sent him their specimens. It was about reptiles, fishes, amphibians, but tomorrow it could be insects... Many times he promissed to send back some common Indian animals in exchange, but he never answered or in best case told that he hadn't get any shipment. In other cases, he asked for urgently needed animals for section (student excercises), but he never paid service. So, please send me any information about him if you know. Many people try to locate his museum, but it is not easy. It don't exist on Internet, but Internet is limited tool. Maybe it is just a private collection, not some college bounded institution as he presented. In my opion experts from India could help the most. So, dear Indian friends, please help us! This good people wanted to help to small and poor Indian museum and it was only a trick. It is in Indian interest to get him, too I think. Best regards to all of you!
