eBay: A forger and scammer paradise

Derek Jeter souvenir ball with replica signature sells for $241.35.

eBay is as bad or worse than it has ever been. It is flooded with scammers selling obvious and mass-produced fakes. Many of these fakes are accompanied by worthless COAs from supposed "forensic experts." It would be a full-time job for a staff of ten people just to highlight some of the fakes that are sold on eBay every day.

Amid Derek Jeter madness, this souvenir ball with an obvious replica signature sold for $241.35. Even from the eBay picture, you can easily tell it is pre-printed and not real pen lines that would be overlapping each other.

I can't believe people drop this kind of money on something they obviously know nothing about. On top of it all, it was being sold by a zero feedback seller.

eBay truly has become a scammers' paradise.
