    Melody (or Suzie), were any of the Grab Bag Orientals shipped to China?

    This Ebay Listing looks legit on first glance (clear picture of a single GB dragon) but the very low starting price and the Chinese address are a little fishy…

    Interested in buying or trading for: GB Pebble Sitting Red Fox in grey, Lap Dragon Test Paints (Pearl Steel Blue, Mystic Umber, Pastel Rainbow, others), & production Lap Dragons with minor to moderate damage!

    Also seeking Breyer SM Swaps bodies in poor to fair condition for customizing.

    I think that one just sold like yesterday or the day before, there’s no way it could’ve gotten that far already…I forget who was the seller though…

    Sitting Cat found! SOON! OMG YEY!

    zeldathedragon is me on eBay, and I can confirm this listing from China is 100% fraudulent. I’ve reported it and I hope eBay boots both the listing and the seller. The real dragon was sold and is already on its way to its new home within the US.

    For what it’s worth, I’ve seen this happening with other collectibles on eBay too. A listing sells for a high price, and almost immediately after the listing ends, an exact duplicate listing offered by a seller with a new account and zero feedback goes up.

    Hopefully this doesn’t fool anybody – thanks to the sharp eyes looking out for everyone!

    Forever seeking: Blackwatch the raffle Old Warrior, Jennifer Miller's pieces, and GB Baby unis!

    It is still showing up in the list when you run a search for Windstones, but clicking the picture leads to an eBay error page. Looks like it’s taken care of now.

    I talked to eBay a few minutes ago, and they pulled the listing. I wasn’t sure they would do it since it wasn’t my listing, but they did.

    Awesome Syn. More and more sellers are using other sellers listings exact words, title and exact pictures. I have let ebay know and even though its against their policies they just ask the seller to remove the listing. However most do not and they just leave them run. An if you think putting your name or water mark on the pictures stops them it does not–they use them anyway. The bad thing is that the potential buyer will think both listing are fraudulent and buy neither of them. There are a few bad eggs on ebay I have tried to scramble them by coping there listing back and calling them out but it did not work some of these sellers are huge sellers and they just do not care if you call them a picture thief/auction copier thief. Lazy or any of that they will still run the copied listing. Its a shame that ebay does not follow their own rules because their standards have dropped. HA.

    I saw it too and reported it. I fell for one of those listings a little while ago. Got my money back but felt pretty silly. Now if I see a BIN that looks too good to be true, I always check the seller first.

    I just called it in to eBay, but I think I was too late; it looks like someone bought it while we were talking. They will get their money back from eBay though.

    Hahaha I “bought” that Jade Mother China Ripoff Test paint.

    Now they will do a full on investigation because the listing has been “solidified” with my purchase.

    One way or another the $69 will make it back to me because I know they don’t have it. (eBay protection policy).

    Now maybe eBay will take it seriously.

    Another Chinese Seller is at it again! They just posted a BIN auction for the Citrine Mini Keeper!

    I reported it to eBay, but Buyer Beware! I also emailed the auction link to Ms. Susie and John so they would know.

    This is sad; back about… oh gosh, maybe 12 years ago now? When some of the Windstone official auctions were going really bonkers in terms of number of bids and ending prices, this was happening then too. I used to report so many of them back then via the Windstone ebay account!! Many each day! Sad to see that some things never change. I hope no one is caught in these scams. 🙁 You guys are so great at reporting these, thank you all so much for your vigilance!!
