Hmm, indeed. Makes a bit of a mockery of the feedback system really. Surely you deserve negative feedback for selling FAKES. Even worse trying to sell it again as a genuine item!

Agreed.


Looks like the only other item they sold was a genuine G-shock > http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230710702084#ht_500wt_1361 . Ironically.

how do these foreign countries replicate these watches so fast... it amazes me... the only way i would know that was a fake is the fact that i know the models that were released and none of them looked like that......i cant stand fakes

I have just been trawling eBay for bargains (huh!) and came across this new seller - or an old seller with yet another new i.d. - (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?campid=5336811139&customid=forum&toolid=10001&pub=5574641556&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2FCasio-Bape-G-Shock-Black-Genuine-%2F250980135724%3Fpt%3DUK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches _MensWatches_GL%26hash%3Ditem3a6f94f32c%23ht_696wt _1272)http://rover.ebay.com/roverimp/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?pub=5574641556&toolid=10001&campid=5336811139&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]


This is an Original G-shock watch made by bape it is brand new and never been worn to give you or who ever its for the feel or a
brand new g-shock watch, take a look at the other two colour which we also sell
red and white these casio g-shocks are going for sale for as low as 45 per piece and 5 for P&P how cheap can it get, if thats not enough check out the special offer we have on price crush and also postage and package.


I mailed back politely:


How did you manage to get so many Bapes to sell on when that model has been out of production for several years and they only produced a maximum of 2000 in any one colour?

Either you have been extremely lucky in finding a source or they might not be quite what they seem. Or, to put it another way, if those puppies are genuine Bape x Casio DW-6900 collaborations I will eat my left testicle.

I would drop these quickly, the other fakers on here will probably resent a newcomer trying to muscle in and the more vindictive among them will report you to eBay - career over.

I am just annoyed that you are fuelling a counterfeit trade and you are trying to make far too much of a profit - these watches wholesale for less than 5 US dollars shipped from a decent Chinese supplier.

Feel free to mail back if I am wrong

Regards, Rob

I am hoping for a reply ...

UPDATE: Here it is!


Dear *******, (my eBay i.d. obscured)

Better still bombard eBay so they pull the auction. Can understand someone picking up a fake and selling it if you know no better, if you have several it's a more deliberate act..

I can't really understand why some people try to sell 'nice' models at the first sight (yes, I admit it 'blue' GW-9300 looks nice),
but including some easy to notice wrong details : battery level indicators are not at the right place and date is only displayed with two digits (the real one has three). Other things seem to be doubtful too, but it could depend on photo quality.
In red, wrong things :
1649

Anyway, don't waste your time with such false watches. As GW-9300 fan, real ones will satisfy you :encouragement:

The worrying thing is apart from the issues obvious to a true G-Shock fan that doesn't look so bad. LCD looks less bad than many fakes and quality doesn't look so terrible. I can see how this would fool a lot of people.

@Pendragon - RESULT!

@rutteger - how about a "fake watch watch" thread where we name and shame the eBay fakers so that we can each send a message to eBay denouncing the fakers?

I can do a quick guide to navigating eBay's reporting procedure if the idea is a good 'un

Good work :D

A reporting fakes sticky /wiki article might be useful. Thread for fake sellers also good idea.
