I'm guessing a lot of us are on eBay a lot. We know there are a ton of bougus auctions. Which ones do you see the most? Is it a certain bike, component, etc. Me, I keep seeing auctions for a 2000 USPS jersey. Each auction has the same 2 photos, from 5 or 6 different sellers. Bogus, maybe not, but, questionable none the less. What do you see?

I've seen this bike a few times I think. Maybe I'm wrong, or someone bought it and now wants to sell it. But it seems the same color scheme, some components attached but stated never ridden, and the description "a dent in the top tube". If not this bike, then one just like it. And always starting at $500.00. Cool bike though.
Kinda like a forgery of a $1 bill?filtersweep

I doubt there is much fraud for such small ticket items... but trust your gut!

I have scarfed a few pics of items I've had to sell from other auctions. If it's the identical item, like a 2000 USPS jersey, then it's easier to save the picture from another auction and reuse it than to go take essentially the same picture, upload it, etc.

I've also reused the same pictures when a couple of items I've purchased have not fit and I've relisted it. But these items have been small ticket items. I'd be more leary of fraud the higher the price was.
