More Chinese rouble fakes

The Chinese forgers have been busy again. Perhaps sales of the earlier fakes

have met met some resistance so fresh dates are now available, all from Moscow

and using the same mold with the date changed.

The inherent danger in eBay allowing this fraud to continue is illustrated by the following

two lots, both from a Greek seller who has sold these Chinese fakes in the past.


The following sale ended on January 23 and an uninformed buyer paid $365 for this 1749 fake:




The same seller is offering another 1749 at present:




This seller also offers genuine coins with grossly inflated rarities attached.

One would think ebay would care more about being a ready outlet for fakes. The inernet is overflowing with fake Rolex watches from China, and even "high quality" replicas (sold as such) from Europe selling in the hundreds..... yet you will never see one on ebay. I assume the Luxury Watch Industry has a viscous legal team. We are simple buyers just crying foul.
