Rs.1000 fake coin on ebay ?
« on: December 07, 2016, 11:01:01 AM »
Hello all,

Just came across this posting in ebay.in

http://www.ebay.in/itm/2010-COMMEMORATIVE-COIN-1000-RUPEE-1000-YEARS-OF-BRIHADEESWARAR-TEMPLE-/162301428000?hash=item25c9eb4120:g:x~UAAOSw4GVYIhp0

The price is Rs.2,499/-

Now for the best part, one of his customer complained that a coin he purchased was a fake. The seller commented as follows -

"Reply by ancientcollectibles007 (31-Dec-2015 21:50):
Try to learn from mistakes do not blame sellers for your negligence"

(http://feedback.ebay.in/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=ancientcollectibles007&myworld=true&items=25&iid=-1&de=off&which=negative&interval=365)

This seller has a sense of humor apart from covering up his mistakes!!!

There are tons of fakes these days on eBay. Almost 30% of overall listings and around 80% of Sliver or NCLT's are fakes.
