What do you do when you see a fake on Evil bay?

When I see a suspicious item on the bay or simply a Chibanez that the seller says its th eultimate metal weapon or whatever and it cost like 2000 new but he is willing to sell it with no reserve what do you do?


Me? I bid a ridiculous ammount of money like 7.50 or 8.70 usd$ if the uction is like 100 I put 102.50....a watch it for my amusement...
Sometimes I send a question to the seller telling him that if its made in Kora China or Japan..... you should see the answers I get Hilarious!

So what do you do....?

I send a polite question informing him what it is and that I'll report it if he doesnt relist it as a chianese 333 because he cant relist it as a 'fake jem'.

Usually politely contact the seller then file a report with **** if the seller doesnt respond or responds negatively

I laugh when I see some fools placing multiple bids on a fake guitar.

i just did one a while ago. I informed the buyer that it was fake and then told the seller. He did nothing and reported him.

Anyway somebody called "fakeJembuster" bid it up to a couple grand and then the seller e-mailed me back screaming telling me that I ruined his sale.
lol

Did you see **** the day those were released? I watched one go for over $5k. Another went for $14000, but there were obviously shills and bogus bidders on that one (although it was fun to watch it leap by thousands within 5 seconds)

They were going for 3-5k easy.
