remember if its fake its garbage
During Operation Bullpen, it was discovered that forgers were using eBay and online auction sites to sell items. A class action lawsuit for fraud was filed against eBay by buyers as a result of information discovered in the investigation. eBay maintains that they are not responsible for the authenticity of the merchandise. Let the buyer beware and ebay does what they can but they dont have the power to safe guard there entire site!ebay and other compaines like us need your help to report listings you.think are questionable Just my own little suggestion on this front - don't rely soley on the feedback rating to determine if this dealer is on the up and up. The feedback rating records the satisfaction of previous customers, it is not a rating by experts.operation bullpen was started serval years ago and during a 2 year under cover investagtion the fbi with the help of experts&the irs arrested over 30 people,mostly dealers with store fronts.they seized over 15 million dollars of fake autographs with the most startling item being mother terresa signed baseballs.allmost all of the people arrested where ebay power sellers with great feedback!
