That's true because force group does NOT mean that a user is 
going to belong to a group in that share but it means that when 
creating a directory or a file. The group of the file/dir is forces of 
what you define.
You HAVE to create a valid user of group in the write list.
Put a @ infront of the to name to tell samba that this is a group
