UK EBAY FRAUD! Please be careful.
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:40:14 PM »
Hello Everypony

Just wanted to point out to everyone that there are fraudulent listings on Ebay UK

These 2 listings are actually copies of 2 other listings. By regular Pony Sellers
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-G1-80s-My-Little-Pony-Euro-VHTF-SPANISH-SWEET-TOOTH-AMAZING-/201925254653?hash=item2f03aeddfd:g:QTUAAOSw7GRZGl1y
(The pictures are actually Ponytales pictures, but this is not there listing it is a fraudulent one)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/My-Little-Pony-G1-Rare-Alternate-Birthflower-Pony-October-Cosmos-Pretty-/222512776664?hash=item33cecb85d8:g:AwQAAOSw8HBZGkOP
(The pictures are actually Babydoll, but again this is NOT there listing it is a fraudulent one)

I buy from these 2 lovely sellers all the time so I knew straight away whos pictures those actually are  ^.^

I have already reported them both to Etsy.

Just wanted to warn everyone to NOT buy these as they are obviously fraudulent listings.

Now I must get back to work  :biggrin:

Yeah i have actually seen quite a few more of these listings now of other G1 ponies. Hope no one is being fooled by them.

Basically atm if you see a bargain G1 pony check that its not coming from China with an account with 0 feed back.... If it is... Then it is a FAKE listing, you will not receive the pony pictured (doubt you will receive a pony at all)

Hope everyone is being careful. I have seen at least another 6-10 of these types of listings go on ebay over the last wk or so (i am reporting them as i see them)

Baby Lemondrop + Stroller - looks like a dodgy listing too:

well someone got taken,  but not for the pony.  Same seller also had a peter rabbit set with a BIN that someone bought

Have eBay still not done anything about this? It seems to have been going on for a long time now.

Can we use this thread to report seriously dodgy looking listings? A new one has gone up on eBay today by a seller in China, with 0 ratings, for the new Kitty Love for a price of $10-25. Which includes international shipping. Too Good To Be True, right? I haven't linked it here as I am not sure if that is allowed?

Oooh I'm sure that Clipper and the other members who were involved in producing Kitty Love would like to know about this!  :(
Better PM the mods rather than post here first :)

The guys from the G1 pony project have said that on facebook a few weeks ago. The pictures were "stolen" and there was no a tual pony on sale. They told ebay and the seller got away. But it may have returned so if you see some Kitty Love or Puppy Love from them, report the user cause it is a fraud.

Ergh, I have seen these listings before. So dodgy. Hope no one here got burnt by them other than picture pinching.

The listing has vanished, so I imagine eBay must have pulled it as I did watchlist it for future reference. It is so sad what some people will do.  :(

I wanted to warn others, but didn't know where...
