Another seller passing off repro weapons as genuine

Postby subzero » Tue Dec 05, 2017 2:38 pm

I don't know for sure if this seller knows what he has, but I suspect he does know they're fake, he's trying to say he found them in a box of other kids toys, he has this one and some other fake weapons listed up as genuine, so he's apparently 'found' quite a few of them...

What an utter prick. If you can be arsed report as many of his listings as you can and then point out that his last piece of feedback is from the biggest source of repro weapons on ebay, thanking him for his custom.

Utter, lowlife piece of shit. That's just fraud, plain and simple.

In fairness the moron probably hasn't got the IQ of the shit he's peddling so he probably needs the money for an intelligence transplant.

What a douche!!

Well done in messaging him, I messaged him too yesterday and got the same response saying he didn't state if they were repro or genuine, so I replied and told him he's basically trying to trick people then into buying it by saying it floats and putting the word vintage in the listing. All he said was he got the weapons with the figures and that the figures are from the 70's, but I let him know they are new 2017 repro's so they've been acquired very recently.

Unfortunately ebay won't do anything but if people like us bombard him with messages and let him know everyone is on his case and know what he's doing, then he'd think twice about trying to scam people. I also didn't think to check his feedback for the weapons source, well done on that!

And then that paugildin-6 likes to think he's not damaging the hobby by selling all this shit, well here is the direct proof. It seems as if this moron is actually a collector too, he has feedback from a good few vintage figure sellers who I recognise.

This guy is having a right cheeky giggle, I think he's bending lightsaber tips now to try and make them look used and genuine. :?

Oh and like he says "sold as seen" ( ie no refunds if you find out they're fake )...

And these blasters he's trying to say he bought them at a toy fair in the 90's, they're 2017 repro's, this is just desperate and truly pathetic...

I am impressed how you guys can see the difference between a reproduction blaster and a vintage one.
Eeeep.
