Michael Davies in Oxfordshire, UK.

Most photos on eBay VERY dark.  Maybe deliberate so you cant see well.

Sells many many fakes.
Many are  same as from Saxby's-coins and ancient-artefacts-uk

Hocus pocus - another multiple sold fake - was hexed miraculously from silvery metal in silver. From replica to genuine Roman

it's amazing how long one can sell unmolested almost entirely fakes on ebay. Seems no buyer noticed

Mike is still going strong.
A few times he sells as "style" or "replica" but not very often!
He either knows nothing about ancient things or he  is a fraudster.

Look at the last pic!!

Jerry.


one makes oneself unpopular with the crooks, if you show them their fakes :-)

He sells a lot of replicas as genuine artefacts

Most of the "genuine items" listed can be found in our replica section http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/topic.773.0.html

Update on contact with Mr Davies.
See from emails below.

He says: "I will make an extra effort to avoid any items that i am dubious about, and if i am in doubt about anything, i will not sell it, and in return, you can put your attention on someone who is a real problem, how does that sound?"

You could answer that you know the dealers he bought from (and then list the replica seller)

As I say above look who Mr Davies buys from

https://www.ebay.com/sch/art*collection/m.html?_trksid=p3692

If link not work, try this one: https://tinyurl.com/yd4cydpj


…………who sells ONLY reproductions!
Then they appear on Mr Davies listings as genuine!


And from  ancientground

Unfortunately not getting anywhere with Mr Davies.

Have been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt – that he is not deliberately selling fakes, just doesn’t know anything about antiquities.

I wrote to him: (and then later explained briefly why these are not genuine)




But as you do not seem willing to look on the forum at what is there about you, (and I can understand your reluctance as it might be unsettling for you to read it all) we would like you to remove from sale at least the following items , which are all definitely not as you describe them: they are not ancient.

We would like to give you the benefit of the doubt and if you can behave sensibly we will make sure that that is reflected on the artifakes forum. It is even possible that your details there would be entirely removed. All depends on you. If you cannot respond as we feel is appropriate we will not contact you anymore but take other action we feel appropriate. This is not meant to be a threat but just simply a statement of how things are.

Hi Jerry
 
As i've said my items are genuine and it is impossible for you to tell me they are not, especially from a picture, i have looked on your forum and i don't see any evidence of anything..There is about five of you throwing accusations at me - Why do you want to push me away from ebay? Sending threatening messages is certainly not a way to get me to do anything if you continue to carry on like that i will block your email and we will have no further contact.


I don’t think I have been “threatening” (look at my emails in previous posting)

Is it possible that he just doesn’t know anything about antiquities?
The screenshots below show that he just has no idea!!
He is now a member here (he says so) so he should be able to see our evidence, but he is still in denial.

What to do?

Jerry

Hi,

I am new to here. It’s an eye opener!!!!

I did myself buy something from this man which was told to me as Mycenaean pottery. It turns out  genuine but  not Mycenaean , but  Cypriote Bronze Age. Well known antiquities dealer told me that Mycenaean pottery found in Cyprus and also sent me this link http://www.persee.fr/doc/mom_1955-4982_2004_act_41_1_2346

When I spent a few minutes “researching” this seller now  I find this and place the photos below.

This is bad bad bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The colour can be changed easily. Can he explain that please!!!???

Cheerio,

The evidence mounts up.
It is not too late for him to remove all the fakes. He can do a nice business with the coins and other genuine things he sells.

Mr Davies can't go on claiming that he sincerely believes such as these are genuine!

Probably bought from a seller such as:

This cheater knows exactly that he sells mostly fakes. He has been pointed out so many times that he can not ignore it anymore.
His only reaction was, he immediately blocked the ebay ID, which pointed him to the fakes.

Title: Re: antiquiti aca mikes-artefacts
Post by: Archaic on May 25, 2018, 09:42:13 PM
This man also sells on catawiki

https://auction.catawiki.com/lotsfrom/Oldwonders

But he is more careful there and shows few fakes. This gives me reason to b believe he knows for sure that he sells fakes on eBay.
(I notice he has more or less stopped buying repro “Roman “ statues on eBay and then selling as genuine. But still offering many quite expensive fakes on eBay)

and



Seller said has COA from Egyptologist!
But has lost the paper! hah hah

Reported to eBay. Listing ended by seller claiming surprise.
But he still sells fakes/tourist souvenirs in large numbers.

Look  he is actually selling some genuine scarabs!
I wonder if he knows that they are genuine.

Today he has 30 pages of listings.
Below are  just the first three pages!
And I have been very generous: unless I’m 100% certain I have not marked “FAKE”.
That puts it in context.
Title: Re: antiquiti aca mikes-artefacts

Incredible. This fake, probably not even silver, has bids for GBP 300.00

The bidders could have bought this ring from the Replica seller komar_34 for $ 19.00.
It is worth to see his listing. Saves a lot of money because other untrustworthy sellers like ancientground etc. also offer these replicas as guaranteed genuine.

Michael Robert Davies = antiquiti
Also sell on catawiki = oldwonders
But is careful to sell mostly genuine things there.
(Because he can tell the difference!)

Look at some feedback on catawiki.
Buyer mentions thing came from Cyprus!

Look who antiquiti  buys so much from.
ancientground who is in Cyprus. (Was before called coinauction12)

So a business deal here? These criminals are partners??

You do not need much knowledge to recognize these "artifacts" as fakes

I embarrassingly bought over £7,000 worth of "Tell Brak" idols from Antiquiti (Mike Davis). These were recently listed on eBay and I was promised provenance for them before I purchased.

The provenance was just made up, unverifiable rubbish and on closer inspection, the idols had flat backs as if they had been made from marble tiles (the backs should have been of a similar finish to the fronts).

Mike Davis did accept my returns and refunded all of my money (as eBay would have made him do anyway), although I am still out of pocket (return shipping) and very stressed out at being so stupid.

As soon as the idols were returned, he relisted them on eBay as genuine.

I am happy to send you copies of emails and any communication that I had with him.

My feedback has disappeared (15 negatives), I have called eBay directly and complained regarding its removal, which they say they will look into.

I have also given them this website and Bron's website details.

Its glaringly apparent that the powers that be at ebay are complicit (read: ACTIVELY INVOLVED) in the ongoing scam to make money by ripping people off. As long as the deception puts money in their greedy coffers, they could care less about any annoying ethical or legal considerations. How could they allow a reported FIFTEEN reports of "this merchant is a crook" to disappear, and for the swindler to remain in business?
Amassing profits through chicanery, illicit imports/exports and grave robbing are inherent components of their business model. Ebay is as much a criminal enterprise as any on the international market. Best get used to it folks. What you gonna do to make them change?

Although he has never crooked me, I take much offense at his behaviour because he coud have crooked me if I had not been warned.

But eBay's bad behavior makes it realy difficult to do anything. No point buying some cheap trinket and to leave negative feedback as they will remove it!

It is very disgraceful!!!

He does this often. Buys reproductions on eBay and resells as ancient.
Sellers are so trusting! And why don't they simply search and see if they can find others sold as modern???
