A well know snake for quite a few years . Am I wrong or wasn't he a member at one time, I do know D. B really loved to run him down and tell him what he thought. That took a while.

He just keeps cranking out more signs , Very deceiving especially for someone just getting started in this hobby and forking out a lot of hard earned money . Probably drive down prices on the real stuff . He's even stated to mix in a few real signs with his other ***** !It's Just going to discourage new collectors from buying, once they find out they have been burned .

It takes all the mist-eke out of collecting porcelain signs . Nothing is sacred anymore .

He is driving down prices because the rare signs seem to be watered down by all the fakes. Once was a hard sign to find, now you have several options multiple times a week to purchase one of his fake India pieces.

EXACTLY! The WOW factor is gone on the chance of seeing a rare sign once in a lifetime.

Just emailed this person asking for his address to try and go see his signs, and he came back with I don't have a store to show them. Always seems to say the right things so he can't be called on selling reproductions. All that can be done is pass the word!

I bought something and got it only to realize is was a fantasy piece. I had my reservations but I took a shot knowing I would be protected by ebay. Once I received the item, I immediately knew it was bogus. I started the return process. He did refund my money right away worth no questions asked. I did leave negative feedback explaining it was a fantasy sign and was not as described, it stayed on his feedback for maybe 3 hours and ebay removed it. I called to complain and explained to them that he was selling fake stuff and extorting people. Their response was that the way he cleverly worded his listing, there was nothing they could do.

If eBay is deleting deserved negative feedback on these scammers' seller pages..that's EXTREMELY messed up. Colluding with counterfeiters? I think eBay is at just as much fault as the seller. Lock em all up! Too bad we don't have any legal representatives around Oldgas....I'm sure a good lawyer or two could scare the living $#%@ out of a fair amount of these sellers with some basic paperwork and wordage. There's no doubt they are breaking the law.
