PostSubject: Action against ebay counterfeitters    Fri Feb 08 2013, 03:00

Alright so per my normal daily ritual I checked ebay this evening to scour the ads for some eagles jerseys. Of course I came upon a jersey that looked ok from afar but definitely proved to be fake (221187122618) even has the tag showing the $269 price tag. The seller claims it as a true reebok authentic as well, as opposed to those that avoid using the brand name reebok and just say "everything is sewn on!" Well tonight I had my breaking point. I found this link where you can report up to 10 counterfeit items at one time and ive probably reported at least 20 this evening.

I love my hobby, and these guys are ruining it. If you feel the desire to do your team a service here is the link:

http://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactUs&wftype=2023&rcode=BN%25P10158&subject=Replica%20and%20Counterfeit%20Items&bcrumb=%20Home%20%3E%20Help%20%3E%C2%A0Membership%20%26%20account%C2%A0%3E%C2%A0Rules%20%26%20policies%C2%A0%3E%C2%A0Replica%2C%20c


There are many out there, and sure our work may seem insignificant, but you gotta start somewhere.

Good for you. I do this periodically, I have to say that eBay doesn't seem to take too much notice, but the more we do it I suppose they will start to take notice.

They dont seem to care. I mean at the end of the day it makes them money to keep the stuff on there but at least ill be able to say I tried.

Its really unfortunate how its nearly impossible to buy a jersey with confidence anywhere other than the team shop or NFL shop.

Thanks for taking care of this, Riptide. Sometimes action is the only way for things to get done. People just gawk at things, but actually taking a stand makes a difference.

I agree that it's terrible jerseys are counterfeited, and that people are totally ignorant about that. It's a shame, really.

Yup so far using that link every jersey i report has been taken off, so ebay has been fairly attentive when its brought to their attention.

Nice, keep it up! It's a great benefit to ebay. You can also increase your ability to spot a fake, which is always helpful. Wish I had that kind of a great eye!

Just keep at it. My eye isnt even the best as I get fooled by fakes at times, however once you learn the main points to look at for jersey authenticity it becomes easier and easier to spot a fake. Stick around here and you'll learn soon enough.
