    Anyone else noticed odd ebay sales lately?

    An odd question, but I've noticed,(on Ebay UK), over the last few weeks a few G Shock's for sale that;

    A: Look like fakes, and all appear to be some sort of "custom" job
    B: Are all up for sale with sellers with either 0 or very low feedback

    I've just spotted the third different seller with a distinctly similar description text to the other two I've seen lately, here are a couple of exerpts of their text:

    "fashion watch is a good gift for your family, friends. it never used"

    "Features:
    1.Functionality such as world time and stopwatch is also enriched. Buy it you can find more good points.
    2.Ease of use and visibility are also ensured by large liquid crystal display.
    3.The timeless style of an analog watch, combined with the functionality of a digital watch.
    4.The battery is very durable. It's professional tested. So you can trust us .
    5.A quality watch is a representative of identity and temperament. And it is a good gift for your family and your friends.
    6.Casio G-Shock semi-round transparent waterproof electronic watches. Waterproof effect is very good, don't worry about the problem of water inflow. So let's get it."

    This particular watch is Titled as this:
    G-SHOCK Red GD-X6900FB Transparent Strap gold-plated Fashion Noble Watch

    Sorry about the font, it's a direct Copy and Paste.

    Obviously fakes and the ebay accounts set up to sell such, but I bet Ebay do nothing even if I tell them!!

    Nothing new I'm afraid. Always fakes on eBay.

    Yeah, that's a given. I was just more pointing out that the same few watches are all for sale by 3 or 4 "different" sellers, or more likely the same seller with more than one account set up.

    I haven't really noticed that sort of thing before that's all.

    Can’t say that I’ve noticed Soda as I rarely mix with EBay after a nice gentleman from Nigeria tried to scam me some time back. General rule is if it costs more than about £15 I look somewhere else.

    There are plenty of fake china made and India sold g-shocks. Some are US based sellers. Generally speaking if it's not clear, bad pictures etc. i scratch my head and even don't bother reporting them since e-bay takes 0 action on these.

    Someone sent me a fake PayPal receipt and insisted I send a £400 watch to Nigeria LOL!

    Just today I've had emails from British Gas, iTunes & PayPal with a link to sign in to resolve issues.
    I feel sorry for people who trust their emails..

    Yeah, I noticed the Frankensteins from Inida started showing up earlier this year. It's too bad that you can't filter out your search base on the country.

    For the last 2 weeks there has been a few out standing ones some DW-6900's or GA6900 as the add says! This seller has 5 or 6 for sale, then the other seller his mate or his other account has none other then the brand new Marvel edition Iron man and Captain America GA-110. Both sellers or accounts have multiple listings for bidding and buy it now. But both are not listing the same watch.

    Seen many fake Oris and Seiko, think they mostly come from India.
