It is not hard to have 85 positives... they would just have to buy 85 cheap items. If they spend a dollar each transaction, then sell one fake Para2 for $150, they are still profiting about $45 on just the first knife they sell. The rest they will profit about $130 each so it is very lucrative.bgrisso wrote:really? never thought about that as a potential problem. I've been buying tons of stuff off ebay forever, never run into that with anything. How can I tell if they are fake, any pointers? The person I bought from had 100% feedback with over 85 transactions, all different stuff. Would someone really construct all that just to sell a fake $150 knife?
The tough part is that sometimes people will use pics of a real knife, then send you a fake one. You never know until it arrives.mainaman wrote:Too many fakes floating to risk it. Some vendors are online knife shops so they are probably OK, but still you have to be able to recognize fakes (and good auction pics) to be able to tell.
