Default ebay policy on fakes and forgeries ... and imitations

Recently Ebay has been the subject of CRIMINAL investigations by Interpol.

Ebay was allowing some of its power sellers to sell counterfeits and forgeries
of the stamps of Germany, among others.

The German government did what any prudent entity should, namely charge the
accomplice, in this case Ebay.

Victims who bought this unmarked garbage were rightfully enraged.

Articles relating to one such seller have evn appeared in ngs.

Stamps which are counterfeits, forgeries and fakes, need to be visibly stamped
as such, as used to happen with the great forgeries by Sperati and Fournier as
I recall.

just my 2 pesos worth.

the new policy, has stalled bids ... with lots being withdrawn . a
new requirement - a "Fake handstamp" must be applied to objects prior
to listing ... to me, this does make sense. devalues items ... and
is a form of decrimination. neither the FIP or AIEP experts use
handstamps ... they issue an opinion only ... genuine or not .
handstamps have been retired .

why is ebay and aps following this policy ? better to relist these
items, in their own category :

fakes, forgeries, fanatsies and imiatations.

comments welcomed ...
