Default help with fake on ebay

Posted By: Evan

I know that some of you have contacts with ebay. I'm hoping someone can assist in getting some fake autographs removed. I have reason to believe they are from Coaches Corner and/or Carl Meyer who uses multiple names on ebay. The following is one of the item numbers 320349717747, I contacted the seller and received a ridiculous reply stating there was an error about it being signed in person. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't know of any experts recognized by ebay in the autograph field, cards yes but not autographs.

Ebay definitely does have autograph "watchdogs" looking out for forgeries. Don't want to put words in his mouth, but I believe Jodi B. may know one or two of these people.

In the mean time, you can file a fraudulent item report. Look for the link towards the bottom of the ebay listing. Click on it, and it will take you through the steps to report why you believe it's a fake. I have done this many times with bad autographs (STAT, Morales items), and each time, ebay has eventually terminated the auction.

The sooner you report these as frauds, the better. Often, these sellers of bad items will make "Buy It Now" deals (outside of ebay) as they realize their items may not make it through to the closing date. So the quicker you report it, the better chance of shutting down any potential transaction (on or off of ebay).

The items were removed with the assistance of an unnamed board member. I have reported no less than 50 obvious bogus signatures with only about a 20% success rate. In one case the seller was using a scan of an item that I owned. I still had to argue with the ebay rep, to get it removed.

"Ebay definitely does have autograph "watchdogs" looking out for forgeries."


They also have selected interviewed watchdogs for fake and altered cards as well as other types of collectibles. It's my understanding that many times these reported items will not always be removed.
