Re: Very questionable 7VWH & seller


I tried to email the item number to Ibanez, but finding an email address on that site is a bitch and a half.

They mention to be cautious of an Ibanez selling for a fraction of the usual price, but these pieces of garbage are going for as much as real Jems sometimes.

Re: Very questionable 7VWH & seller


Found Ibanez email address and sent it in, looks like the auction is closed.
Hopefully the seller is banned too, that's the third or fourth time she tried selling that thing

Re: Very questionable 7VWH & seller


I have a direct line to Paul Specht who has very graciously taken on the job of sending e-bay the VERO forms on these.

Ibanez is also working from another angle [he won't reveal yet], and Yamaha just won a copyright suit in China, hopefully Ibanez will follow.

I suggested a web portal you could enter an e-bay item # with software that would compare to all numbers entered [so they wouldn't get the same auction 20 times], and then make that available to a select few of us zealot types that are very good at recognizing fakes and also very actively shopping. It may happen, but their IT team is so overworked it sure won't be anytime soon. Until Paul gets sick of it, he's our answer for now.

Re: Very questionable 7VWH & seller


Very nice. Hopefully these buttholes will be put out of business for good. That particular seller threatened to report me to the bay again. I told her I didnt think she'd want to call any extra attention to her auctions. Hopefully the police will be involved in this case.

For not explicitly stating that something was fake? You'd want the police to get involved...?

Re: Very questionable 7VWH & seller


They were intentionally trying to sell it as real. Fraud is a crime still last I checked.

Yep, selling counterfit items is a crime. This scumbag tried 3 times to sell that guitar, knowing it was a fake, changing the story each time she listed it.

Holy Moley... for the cost of doing the repeat auctions, she should just burn the guitar and sell the case for 150.
