Naive Post & Go Faststamp Overprint Forgery Appears

Take a look at the scan on the Norvic Blog and see if you think someone's been creative with their inkjet printer? They also created the location identifier as "000000" which is also an "error".

As the actual label is not a forgery and all the security features are present it isn't really that surprising that the stamp apparently travelled all the way to Australia. So it's an interesting forgery provided it is clearly described as such and, perhaps more significantly, it also serves as a reminder for us all to be extra careful when considering overprint errors (or the very rare overprints) when they are offered by online auction.
