Special campaign to get rid of these crooks


That seller of the very large number of fake legionary rings (and lots of other fakes , all made in Bulgaria) is now, with several different seller IDs , the biggest seller of fakes antiquities on eBay.

Today there are 57 (pic attached) from only his main selling ID!

We reported countless times the fakes of uniques77777 and its branches (five_stars_five, augusta_fine_arts) on ebay. After filing all claims for fake selling this crook began to increase the number of fakes and opened a fourth branch, ebay ID alexander_art_classic. This leaves a lot of room for guesswork and these assumptions leave ebay in a very bad light.

Our last try......... to organise a mass reporting of these fakes to the ebay head quarter. The yahoo group has been contacted accordingly and we also hope for their help
(note... We are still looking for the yahoo group, but apparently they have been lost in the jungle of discussions, lack of interest and competence)

My suggestion would be an email as below:


We fight back
 
- against the massive sales of fakes on eBay
 
- against the ignorance of ebay customer supports

Mafia-like structures and global links make it easy for scammers. The ebay's failure to remove the negative feedbacks in compliance with ebay guidelines makes the feedbacks worthless.
 
There are a good two dozen seller in the antiquities sector cheating on a large scale. And every day there will be more.
 
The honest seller remain on the track.
 
We expect that something will finally be done. At the latest from this mail you can not pretend ignorance anymore.

I am open to any criticism or suggestions. Mailing addresses of interested newspapers or Internet portals are also helpful. Just use the reply button and write down what I forgot maybe, could do better or other useful tips.

I need as many participants as possible for this action. As we fight with open visir, these mail addresses must be up to date.

If you want to remain anonymous, use the mail button on the left (envelope) and tell me your mail address or useful things on this private way.

Thanks for your attention and help

fighting spirit sought

Who still thinks it was none of his business and would rather watch passively, as this fraud continues ................, is wrong on this page!

But who wants to change something, even been cheated for hundreds of dollars, is asked to shake off his inertia and support our campaign.
We will not change anything if we all just watch. Ebay will continue to earn a 10% sales charge from the scammers and respond to fake report like this:

File a report
Thank you for taking the time to submit this report.This information is very important to us, so please be assured that we will thoroughly review it and take action if necessary.

If there's a violation, the action we take depends on how it impacts our community. In some cases, we explain the situation to the seller and the listing will remain on our website. *** If the item or listing doesn't follow our rules, we may cancel the listing. We may also restrict the seller's buying and selling activities on eBay.***

To protect our users' privacy, we're unable to share the action we take. Thanks for understanding.

Note: You don't need to contact us again. Doing so would create a new report and prolong the process.

*** Remark ... our experience is that ebay only uses this possibility. More does not happen. Never, but never has a fake seller been banned.
*** Now we understand better why ebay ignores the fake reports. Fake-selling follows their rules :-)

Countless times we and other deceived members have reported ebay the scam. The only reaction from ebay was the above confirmation. Not more. The scam continues and increases from month to month.

There are sellers whose activities are funding organised crime.
They use special software that can create multiple eBay accounts, and the consequent interlinked positive feedbacks, faster than you could possibly imagine, so don't rely on sellers' feedback history.

We are really in a global market that ebay uses for its business. It's a shame, that this big platform at least acts morally as a fence. Wiping with seller and customer protection have meant that scammers can enrich themselves on ebay almost unhindered.

Ebay has become a public nuisance as it offers fraudsters support for criminal activity and is only interested in maximizing its profits.
Ebay gives the responsibility for the frauds to its customers - who buys fakes and then notices, can reclaim the money. Only most buyers do not realize that the alleged antique "bargain" is a fake. Good for ebay - bad for the buyer. And the fraudulent seller basks in 100% positive feedbacks for selling 100% fakes like uniques77777.

The way out of this gigantic scam can only be a concerted action that ebay shows that this scam has not gone unnoticed and we - the buyers and honest sellers - are no longer willing to watch.
We are called upon to sue EBay for its great and guilty irresponsibility to end the outrageous and rampant sale of fake artifacts on eBay.

Since this crook is in our forum, the counterfeits increase daily. That means..he is putting his thumb on his nose to all of those who object to his fraud

Keep doing it like the three monkeys  ?
hear nothing - see nothing - say nothing ... but then never will change anything!

If anyone still believes our campaign is not his concern or it would not matter ..................

Then look away!


But if you are outraged and do not want to allow a criminal gang to take over the market on ebay with its fakes and cheat hundreds of bona fide buyers, then contact and join us.

The reason for our campaign............................................

For the time of this campaign, our guests can also see the full extent of this seller’s scams.
http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/board,468.0.html

This seller has recovered from the shock of negative feedbacks. After his "I-have-all-inherited" lie, he raises the fake offers again ..

May 16, 2018 ..       = 32   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   10 newly listed today
May 21, 2018..        = 32   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   21 newly listed today
May 24, 2018..        = 49   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   27 newly listed today
May 26, 2018..        = 46   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   18 newly listed today
May 27, 2018..        = 56   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   10 newly listed today
May 31, 2018..        = 43   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   15 newly listed today

June 4,  2018..        = 31   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   16 newly listed today
June 6,  2018..        = 28   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   12 newly listed today
June 19, 2018..       = 38   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   14 newly listed today

July  o2, 2018..       = 47   fakes listed by uniques77777, of which...   14 newly listed today


We learned from the last two negative feedbacks for uniques77777 that the fakes offered are obviously not made of silver.
The scam is thus much larger than we thought.

From 8. 3. 2018 to 3. 6. 2018 number of fakes sold = 369
From 6. 6. 2018 to 2. 9. 2018 number of fakes sold = 326

Hello and thank you for allowing me to add a concerned voice to this Special Campaign. As you've indicated time and time again, it is apparent the profit motive continues to dissuade ebay from taking effective action against these scammers and con artists. The gaudy collection of fakes they're posting in ever-increasing numbers are not even GOOD KNOCK-OFFS! Ebay makes money when these swindlers make money. Only a concerted campaign to express outrage will have any chance at breaking the symbiotic bond between ebay and it's cadre of con men.
I will log complaints on the most egregious of their ebay listings to help move the ball forward

Can we hope carefully? Did ebay finally listen to us? At least 300-400 times the busy "ancientartifakes bees" have reported the fakes of uniques77777.

Complete listing of this crook has been finished. But unfortunately, apparently only a "ghost" victory.

All 55 fakes are a few days later again for sale.
We must not lose sight of our actual goal of mailing to the Ebay leadership and interested press, and continue despite this disappointment.

So gradually we should include these scammers.
luxeon55, the Serbian group around master-numismatics (ancient-lord, antique_store1, roman-hunter, bay_antique, etc.) and the remaining Top Ten fake sellers.

Let's continue !

Chris

What looked like a defeat in the beginning has turned out to be a partial victory.

Ebay has its own way of dealing with cheaters. After estimated 350-400 fake reports uniques77777 closed from one day to the next his complete listing. After a few days all fakes were listed again.

That was irritating. It turns out, however, that uniques77777 can only (or may) sell "nationally". No international listing is possible anymore.

Why is USA "National" for a European seller?

He comes from Bulgaria, but ebay offers the possibility for sellers from countries where ebay is not represented to sell from the USA. This is exploited by the fraudsters. The Serbian and Bulgarian mafia-like gangs now have an easy game, spread all over the world and serve their customers with fakes.

And ebay kills two birds with one stone. It has hypocritically reacted to the many fake reports while saving its high profit margins (10% sales charge).

That's what I call "double morality". In one sense, the index finger is raised (customer protection), in the other respects ebay works under the public eye as a fence

Chris

PS. ebay has decided only to limit the restriction to national sales . This cheater is allowed to sell his fakes again internationally. The selling prices rise again and ebay can continue to participate in this scam

57 (fifty-seven) fakes sold within 10 days.

With every fake, the profit of ebay increases. With each fake, the cheaters are more and more protected.

A classic win-win situation. It indicates an economic starting position in which two participating partners can only achieve benefits; In this case ... ebay receives 10% final value fees from each fake sale and protects its fraudsters extensively. The scammers are constantly selling increasing amounts of counterfeits and feeding the greedy colossus ebay.

It seems that the deceived buyers are tired of waiting for a response from ebay's customer support. Not bad, 5 negative feedbacks are a small reward for our action.

The negative feedbacks are likely to disturb uniques77777 meanwhile violently. At the moment he licks his wounds and tries to sell his fakes with the other branches dboriko and five_stars_five. Open link for our guests too  
http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/board,501.0.html
http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/board,488.0.html

Similar offertext, identical headlines and the same lie, where the artifacts come from..........................

ATTENTION: This ring is part of a personal collection consisting of 100% authentic artifacts that I inherited. The ring was checking by expert on determining the composition of the metal and it is solid silver. Please read the description carefully and review closely all detailed photos and if you are not sure you want purchase the item, please not bid and not make offers in my auctions! Also if you have any doubts about the authenticity of the item PLEASE DON'T BUY because I will not accept a return!

more and more buyers fight back and try to warn other customers.

Despite the numerous negative and neutral feedbacks that urgently warn against the fakes, ebay buyers still offer. What else has to happen until even the most ignorant ebayer wake up?

Attention!  Uniques7777 uses now his other ID five_stars_five.
Visible for our guests too.......http://ancientartifakes.net/smf/index.php/board,488.0.html
He points with his goldfake, which he always likes to present, very brazen even on it. He fears no reprisals from ebay and knows how ignorant and blind the bargain hunters are.
