Ebay's Worst Offerings

Recommended Posts

The seller is not putting on the description they are 2019 (which may be seen as misleading ) although that is on the picture and cant be classed as fakes.

The fraud squad........Sounds a bit heavy ¬†ūüėģ¬†:D

Are there fake 2019 is that what you mean ?

Most of his buyers are probably not aware of the 2019 reissue of Kew Garden 50p. To be fair to him, he has given the date as 2019 in the description  (under item specifics). Not mentioning the date in the title or that this is  a  " 50 years of the 50p " reissue is not ultra scrupulous. 

Can't understand how he can claim 100% feedback on over 4000 transactions whe his feedback rating is only 37.

I'm sure that if someone buys or sells multiple items to the same person, then it only counts as one feedback score, so 4000 feedbacks with 3964 from the same person counts as 1, doesn't it? A bit tedious, but within the capabilities of a dedicated shill bidder, or someone anxious to build up their reputation. e.g. You sell 4000 identical items to the same person (yourself) and leave 4000 feedbacks. Sorry I'm a cynic. :)

think there is a timeframe(week?) where your feedback is not counted more than once if for the same seller

Here's a guy selling multiple listings for fake kew gardens 50 pences. He has already sold a few at decent prices, granted he is not getting the full amount. I actually telephoned ebay yesterday who said they would pass it on to their fraud squad, yet nothing has been done. So obviously ebay condones the selling of fakes ūüė†

You do realise that they re-released the Kew garden with a 2019 date don’t you?

Although saying that, he is showing pictures of a 2009, but year of manufacture is 2019, so he is being a little economical in the description. I guess he is hoping no one checks the full listing

The year is on the OBV Dave and shows as 2019 as they all have 2009 on the REV.

This one looks like a fake probably better than most being offered? No mention of copy restrike etc

A worryingly good fake.  I wonder if the weight is anywhere near accurate.

Bidding at £2,160...

The seller is previously of "I want a house for my £1 coin" fame. My feeling is that the edge photo is insufficiently clear (could be ex-mount ?). What do you all think ? 

She is at it again.

Are there some raised dots by the V of Victoria?

"ITS SOLD AS SEEN BOUGHT AT YOUR OWN  JUDGEMENT"

"AS IM NOT AN EXPERT" 

Oh look, her last feedback as a buyer was for a particularly interesting item: :D :D :D

That's very strange - instead of a genuine feedback it just describes what was bought! Almost as it the seller had their own suspicions about her and decided to make sure that any subsequent buyer looking up the seller/item would spot the word "restrike".

The original seller probably noticed her first attempt to pass the item as the real thing. This is Marlybob1's second attempt.

Can you change feedback? Didn't realise you could.

Marlybob1 didn't leave a feedback when she brought the item initially. The original seller didn't leave one either as a result. He gave a feedback later on for a very good reason.

I think it would be more interesting to ask the original seller mycopau if it is the same item.

Found the listing from the original seller. 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1847-VICTORIA-GOTHIC-CROWN-CONTEMPORARY-SILVER-FORGERY-See-Description-/264080811375?nma=true&si=hX46vC%2BxoiDdDtNubzED6M7TcHs%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

It's the same coin I think. Looks like she has done some artificial toning. 

Before:

After: the black spots below r and t of gratia and the spot on the right field are present.

Actually, mycopau was quite clever to leave a positive feedback that made it clear the coin was a copy. As a regular seller, she can contact Ebay over negative or neutral feedbacks and get them removed if she can make a case for why they should be. But positive feedback - why should Ebay even discuss getting that taken down!

Well done mycopau!¬†ūüėĄ
