Yet another item this spiv does have have.
Remember this guy would have get employed by Maccas to flip burgers at $10 an hour, so he needs to stoop to this stuff. Report it all to ebay along with those below and another of his Fake IDs will be wiped.
APTA are not interested these days, as they have no leadership vision, but COLLECTORS of perfins
might be FAR more motived to report this spiv right now, to protect the value of their perfin collections.
These 2 fakes below he has whipped in recent days to roughly mimic the genuine pieces that are discussed on stampboards. Typical fuzzy scans to disguise his crude perfin work. He has posted totally false backgrounds to them both of course, also breaching ebay rules. And the former is Fraud Squad stuff really.
ebay scammer cosmos121 was banned once by ebay and somehow talked his way back on - lets get him banned AGAIN - recent fakes are outlined here -
Ebay have revamped the rules re forged and faked and replica and counterfeit stamps.
Sellers now MUST
mark fakes indelibly on reverse, and load a photo of that marking into the lot description.
Alterations (that includes forged perfins, overprints and cancels) and repairs MUST be noted now if known to seller, and sellers offering conga lines of the same fakes clearly DO know!
Also on EVERY ebay lot there is a “Report Item”
icon – whether the sale is ended or not.
Reporting that via the simple drop-down options as shown below is a 5 second operation -
If ebay gets 5 or 10 reports on any given items they WILL generally take notice. They usually warn the user and remove the lot. Sellers getting several such removed lots are in trouble.
Let’s use ‘people power’ to stop this material getting offered.
Everyone “hoping” others act, will get nothing done - like most things in life! It takes teamwork and a Community Spirit
, and the dodgy and misleading lots will be FAR less.
ebay now have set up a fast new portal JUST to report suspected sellers of forged stamps at - https://tinyurl.com/ebayfakes
- also found at - https://www.ebay.com/scw
- there is space for 10,000 characters in your reply, so all the relevant info can be added. Unlike most ebay complaint forms that allow just 100 characters etc.
Please take a moment to do BOTH
….. do the “Report Item” drop-down, and give a summary on the link above.
Most likely they will go to 2 different ebay staffers, and that is double trouble for the fakers.
Some staffers ignore such stuff, others are more pro-active – it is a lottery.
However several reports on any single item can be seen by all staffers looking at it, and that generally gets some action.
Even if 4 staffers have ignored it, the 5th staffer might see 5 reports and decide to act etc.
- never under-estimate the value of it! 8)
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1913-Penny-Red-TRIAL-with-Double ... 3294604884
1913 Penny Red TRIAL with Double OS perforation Large & Small Mint.
This stamp originates from the H.F. McNess sales from the 1970's.
This were done as only trials NOT for postal use so therefore it is impossible for them to be genuinely used.
This stamp has been checked by leading perfin experts and they have unanimously agreed that the punctured 'OS' fits exactly with the parameters of certified genuine examples from the Australia Post archival sales therefore any USED copies are and can only be forgeries.

another of the Sydney Faker IDs -
1913 1/2d green First wmk with VARIETY, DOUBLE perf large OS used & SCARCE!!!
This stamp was found in an old estate collection which hasn't been touched for decades,
and is genuine in all aspects.
Report this crude junk when in there too please. Totally fake CTO cancels of course and High School grade OS overprints.
