eBay better watch out:

Quote:
PARIS — eBay said it would appeal a French court`s order that it pay 38.6 million euros ($60.8 million) in damages to the French luxury goods company LVMH, the latest round in a long-running legal battle over the sale of counterfeit goods on the Internet.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, a maker of high-end goods and fashion and luxury products, successfully challenged eBay for a second time in the French court, arguing that 90 percent of the Louis Vuitton bags and Dior perfumes sold on eBay are fakes.

The court ruled Monday that eBay, which earns a commission on the sales, was not doing enough to stamp out counterfeit sales. The decision, while costly, is unlikely to have a drastic effect on the way eBay conducts business because it has already made changes to police its site for counterfeit goods. As eBay moves to more fixed-price marketplaces, it wants access to brand-name products for the cachet and the revenue those brands can bring.

My replacement G57 for the one struck by lightning a few weeks ago, looks as if it has been stolen while in transit by UPS from Sevenoaks Sound and Vision in Peterborough UK to my house in the South of France. I am waiting to be advised of the serial number and once I receive it, I will post it here. It went astray either in East Midlands Airport or Cologne Airport. Beware if you are buying a nearly new G57 from Germany, the UK or France - it may well be stolen. I am keeping an eye on both eBay and Loot.com.

That is why it is best to pay with credit cards, you can stop payment on a credit card.

But that harms the seller who seems blameless in this case. I suggest insurance for eBay buyers for LGB train stuff, but many don't see the need. I bought in 5200s from Audiogon last year and insured the lot through one of the 3rd parties listed in the Wiki. I assume they would insure a shipment from a dealer too...and you could get it through the dealer too.

I would like to provide a heads up regarding a possible scam from eBay seller dealsman3646. He is using my photo of a DSP5000C on the US eBay site without permission. I have reported to eBay, but they don't make the process simple. No wonder so many people complain about scams as it seems they do nothing to prevent them.

Now that we have a photo upload service, should we be using this to post scam pictures? Probably need to watermark it "Scam". As eBay deletes its photos after a while there is no lasting record of photos used by scammers.

I have seen the photo pointed to by MacGuy before.

What do we think of this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Meridian-DSP7200-Black-/220741651519 Genuine or not?

- 3 day auction
- 30 postage
- copy-out of specs from brochure
- no reason given for selling...

Hi Guys,

If you spot a SCAM listing on eBay please report it immediately to eBay, as well as on here.
I've just done it 'again' for the above and it only took 30 secs.

Carl

If I were sure, I would. But I'm still finding my feet with all this stuff, so wanted the forums opinion first.
