Fake Weapons

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

Fake Weapons

Postby Snaketibe » Fri Jan 26, 2018 11:24 pm

Please see this bullshit listing:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Star ... 3120555348?

The seller claims they are all genuine originals, but the Rancor Keeper's vibroblade, the 'Small Rifle (blue)' and the Luke Jedi Blaster - Grey Version they have listed are all clearly repros (http://www.imperialgunnery.com/otherweapons.htm - Rancor Keeper Vibroblade REPRO Variant 1 , http://www.imperialgunnery.com/imperialblasters.htm - V1 - Imperial Blaster REPRO is cast in Blue & http://www.imperialgunnery.com/palaceblasters.htm 'Palace Blaster REPRO - V1').

And where three weapons are claimed to be originals, but are actually obvious fakes, I'm not sure I trust many of their other listings...

Please join me in messaging the seller to inform him / her of their error and to 'encourage' them to remove them immediately.

Thanks everyone for your efforts. I too received a reply, but mine was a little different. Look what the little tosspiece sent me:

Since when does NOT reporting someone to eBay for selling fake goods as genuine, and instead first giving them a chance to do the right thing and remove the listings constitute a threat? :lol:

It wasn't a threat. It was a statement of fact. If he doesn't like it, perhaps he should report me to eBay for telling him to stop selling fake goods and see how far he gets! :lol: :lol: :lol:

His claim that he placed the listings in 'good faith' I might have given him the benefit of the doubt about if just one of the weapons was fake, but 3 photos clearly showing fakes starts to look more than just accidental!

At least he caved under the pressure, so at least some good has come of our efforts, hopefully he's not another 'tomli6' and just carries on trying to sell them as genuine like a little spaz.
