Abstract: It is shown that every class of contracting similitudes $\{f_{1},\ldots , f_{N}\}$ on $R^{s}$ satisfying the OSC and such that $\dim _{H} \mathcal{K}_{0}<s$, where $\mathcal{K}_{0}$ denotes the corresponding fractal, can be extended to an infinite family of contracting similitudes which still satisfies the OSC but the SOSC does not hold.
