    Has anyone heard of this?

    You can become an official Lord or Lady for around 40 even add it to your drivers licence. Could be useful for impressing foreign chicks - my favourite kind!

    Has anyone on the forum done this?

    They have a funny ad also -

    The whole 'buying land makes you a lord' thing is a ridiculous and untrue myth. The vendors selling plots of land with lairdships attached are basically con-artists that are selling literally nothing but a scrap of paper with no actual basis in reality.

    Just thought I'd nip that in the bud quickly.

    This is just a spammer, though, isn't it?

    Probably. Either way, it's a big ol' con. Pretty similar to the whole 'BUY PLOTS OF LAND ON THE MOON' thing.

    However didn't they guy that claimed the moon stand up in court?

    Also you can become a lord of sealand for not much money. The guy that owns it is proper desperate for cashish.

    I think the moon thing gets around it by basically going 'we don't own the moon, and by buying this scrap of paper you actually have to go up there and claim it yourself, but we'll handle the paperwork for you afterward'. And Sealand thing is probably even more of a con - being a fake Lord of Scotland is one thing, being a Lord of a nation utterly unrecognised by the rest of the world is something else entirely.

    Just had a little lookup and yeah all attempts to amend the treaty to exclude corporations and individuals have failed.

    You can't say that they are invalid claims because back in frontier times they were too but got ratified because they were on it and improved it.

    Yeah sealand guy is getting to the point where if he doesn't make some serious money he's doomed. His parents were class.

    To be fair, you can pay that, and entirely legally call yourself a Laird if you really want as long as it's not for the intention of committing fraud. But you can do that for free, and it wouldn't really be the real title, it'd be more like changing your first name to Laird. If you do that, you're mental.

    i.m guessing you can buy a lord title somehow. I work on phones alot and a few years back i was speaking to someone who introduced himself as a lord and kept repeating it, all the while saying he doesn't like being called one. He seemed a bit loopy so while i was on the phone i googled him. He come straight up on a news article from a local newspaper talking about how he's the local crackpot and he bought the title of lord years back. Was pretty funny listening to him.

    A friend of mine got a credit card where he had the title of Lord done many, many years ago. It was great for booking meals.
