Alas, Pawel Nowak is indeed a liar, thief and all around scam artist. I didn't know about his sword scams, but he is very well known on militaria sites for trying to sell medals he doesn't own. I should know, I fell for it! He ripped me off $235US, but there could be light at the end of the tunnel! I have my own site, and we have dedicated a forum for Pawel, and my 2IC has been having some fun with him. See here:
I'm not an aikido man at all, but I joined so you could see what he's been up to. We do have an edged weapons forum, so if any of you would like to display photos of your swords etc, please feel free to do so. If we can arrange for some 'friends' to go and pay Pawel a visit, now we have his home address, I'll keep you all posted!
