    Angry Can someone end the FAKE BAPE madness

    I see posts on here all the time about WUS members getting auctions taken down. So if someone with the know how can take action please do. How is it that this guy can have the nerve to use the word "authentic" in this auction. As someone who has spent quite a bit of money for real Bape watches this irritates the heck out of me.

    I saw a listing this morning for a white bape for $100. Four photos... three of a real white bape and the last of a fake white bape. Buyer beware!

    It's pretty hard to stop the tsunami of fake Bapes on eBay. You close one down, three or four pop-up. Casio is constantly hunting down the main suppliers and manufacturers of these fakes. Biggest problem is that they now make the fake 6900 pretty good, so it's sometimes hard to tell if one is fake. Other problem is that innocent G-Shock auctions were taken off line too. Frankly I don't think I will ever buy a Bape on eBay, because they even advertise with genuine photo's for fake products, like Kung wrote...

    Cheers,

    I've bought one of my Bape G-Shocks from eBay. My red one. It was a smooth transaction luckily, although it is a minefield. Best advice is to ask for additional photos with some sort of proof that they have been taken recently and if there's any doubt, just don't buy it.

    yeah, I haven't bought a bape on ebay, but if i were to, I would def ask for multiple closeups of the watch, with a piece of paper with their ebay username written on it, so I knew whatever they were sending me pictures of was on hand, then I would determine the authenticity myself. plus, as kind of protection for the seller, ebay has a whole help page dedicated to helping potential buyers figure out fake bapes. So ebay def. knows they're out there.
