Background and History

No New Posts Who was John Fairchild?

It is believed that John Fairchild, an Englishman, was the individual responsible for creating the Tiffany Buckle Scam. Share any information you about this person with others as it appears as if very little is known about him (other than the fact that he's now gone). It would be interesting to find out more regarding the creator of this scam.
