Curious auction, good luck selling a used watch for almost twice retail.

The guy is selling what I assume is a fairly standard 6900, no way of telling from the photos. He has a second for sale - an "Eminem" watch. He is almost randomly picking names from the hat and ascribing them to his watches. I have a G-2500-3V which I bought via eBay from an ex- Israeli Defence Force member. So maybe I can sell that "as issued to Mossad and Israeli elite special forces."

I am getting quite concerned at the number of rip-off merchants on eBay at the moment. Nasty fake Bapes (there are hardly any other kind) are being sold with a lot of bidders going for them and highish prices being paid. Frogmen with analog movements or totally unconvincing digital displays are selling well too. Ebay don't seem to care any more that counterfeits are taking over the Casio section and the sellers I have contacted directly either don't reply, don't give a s*** or are downright abusive.
So what is the answer ...?
