Italy have gone far in the world cup and in true ebay fake style there are loads of signed shirts available! Of course there are as sellers of fake signatures always deal in the hottest team or players to make extra money.Please look carefully at the Italy signed shirts currently on sale,only a few are genuine and they are expensive.
Some clown in the last week has listed over 20 and still has loads for sale right now.All the signatures are in the exact same place! No way how lucky did he get,he managed to get hold of around 30 signed Italy shirts that are like gold dust and the signatures are in identical positions! What are the chances of that.....getting signatures after a training sessions with crowds pushing all around you and players in a hurry and someone manages to get over 30 identical shirts.Do you really think this could happen or do you think its a mass produced fake shirt to cash in on people who dont study what they buy?
There are so may fake signatures and signed football shirts on ebay that you really need to be careful.There are several simple steps to follow.Avoid Private sellers that have private bids and private feedback.If they are genuine people selling genuine signatures they would have nothing to hide or nothing to make private.Several become private sellers as they start churning out the same signatures over and over again that are forged or because as they sell more and more fakes their feedback gets really bad.
These fake sellers also recycle their forged items.They claim the signatures are done when players are leaving training leaning out of their cars yet they sell shirts with signatures in the exact same place to the exact cm! I have seen just recentley where 15 names were in the exact same place on different shirts sold by the same seller a few weeks earlier.What were the chances of that happening! A million to one i would say! But by making their auctions private you can't see what they have sold before and that they are duplicating their shirts unless you watch and track their activities.
Sellers of fake items usually show you one terrible blurred photo of the shirt they are selling with signatures that look like they are signed by a 4 year old problem child.The other trick is sellers of fakes usually have one day or three day auctions so there fakes have less time to be spotted by the powers that be.If you have a genuine article for sale you would have it up for auction as long as possible.A 7 day,10 day or even longer auction.
With the world cup being played right now the amount of fake football signatures has gone thru the roof.Again beware of sellers with private bids,one told me it was to protect his bidders from being spammed and getting emails offering to supply the autographs at a cheaper rate and they wanted to protect their bidders! Anyone who does this gets suspended or removed from ebay so it hardly ever happens.
The other thing sellers of fake 'signed' items some times do is try to provide photographic proof.This is almost always nonsense.You can
