E-mail ME
 

Because of the tremendous increase in computer viruses, worms and spam, I no longer open any e-mails with empty subject lines, subject lines with question marks only, or those with the headings of  Hey”, “Hi”, “Need help”, “Info”, etc.  Most prove to be spam, & are NOT related to ghost towns, genealogy or license plate collecting.

 

If you do send me an E-mail wanting to trade license plates,

PLEASE indicate the appropriate topic “LICENSE (or NUMBER ) PLATE TRADE” on the “subject” line.

 

 

Thank you very much.

Gary

(for Gary B. Speck Publications & Ghost Town USA)

 

 

PLEASE NOTE – VERY IMPORTANT

With all the hoopla about more recent plates being a problem on places like eBay and other plate selling/trading forums,

I WILL NOT knowingly request/sell/trade/post any plates that are dated/expired 2011 through current on either this or my TRADE LIST.
