Feedback might be private Peter.

I would love to know what the seller of the Viking Labelled Madonna thinks of this should she ever find out. ;)

We ought to set up a public FB page that has provable trickery like we have shown here. There is nothing illegal with "interfering with business" if the business can be shown to be operating in bad faith. In the US, if the business were to sue, it would be up to them to show the statements made about them were false. Since they would be true, the business wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

I think of how much money the Tiffany Fakes site may have saved people over the years. And they even have the guts to name names. I haven't checked them in a while, so guess they are still up and running.

I have set up a group along those lines as I think it is a great idea.

The response I had from Ebay when I reported items to them was 'We can only act if you are the copyright holder of the items you are suggesting as fakes'.

Perhaps if we use one of theses emails <ukfraud@ebay.com>; <safeharbor@ebay.com>; <uksupport@ebay.com> & bombard them with info on what is going on then maybe something will get done
