Abstract: Recently, J. H. Shapiro showed that, contrary to the case of separable $ F$-spaces with separating duals, the Orlicz-Pettis theorem fails for $ {h_p},0 < p < 1$, and some other nonseparable $ F$-spaces of harmonic functions. In this paper we give new, much simpler examples of $ F$-spaces for which the Orlicz-Pettis theorem fails; namely weak-$ {L_p}$ sequence spaces $ l\left( {p,\infty } \right)$ for $ 0 < p \leq 1$. We observe that if $ 0 < p < 1$ then the space $ l\left( {p,\infty } \right)$ is nonseparable but separable with respect to its weak topology. Moreover, we show that the Orlicz-Pettis theorem holds for every Orlicz sequence space (even nonseparable).
