I'm tempted to give them the benefit of the doubt if they are just what I'd call general bric-a-brac dealers ... people who sell all kinds of random stuff they obviously pick up from junk-sales. If he was selling a knife collection or he had quite a few knives then I'd be far more suspicious. But it does beg the question - how do the fakes/knock-offs get into the system in the first place - who is importing them and selling them on? That's the most difficult question to answer. But of course my opinion on a trader can change if they don't take down a fake item when they have been informedThe General wrote:I wonder if its just a poorly edgeucated seller or if the seller is intentionally ripping people off?
Or he's just a more savvy crook, and figures a low price would be a tip-off that it's a rip-off.ChrisR wrote:EDIT: Hmm, just seen the price he is trying to sell it for ... either he has been really badly misinformed about its value and maybe paid over the odds for it - or there may be more to this story That's way more expensive than any Native and if he did any research at all he could have seen that this is not one of Spyderco's legit models ... my sympathy is ebbing away.
Still shows up, but it shows as ended yesterday with 0 bids. Which generally means the seller ended the auction rather than eBay pulling it. If eBay pulls it, it disappears.TBob wrote:Still there tonight. Reported and sent the seller an email.
Ahhh. Didn't notice the date - good catch. I wonder why the seller didn't just pull/delete the auction.The Deacon wrote:Still shows up, but it shows as ended yesterday with 0 bids. Which generally means the seller ended the auction rather than eBay pulling it. If eBay pulls it, it disappears.
