    Default Perhaps the worst Grey Vetiver eBay fake of all time

    ...and the seller has sold at least 3 on Buy It Now, and has an auction with 18 bids standing at £46. Don't get scammed this Christmas, folks! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181271983207

    That does look bad. Was this account a top seller? Also, stay away from Israeli E-Bayers they have a good price for a very good reason.

    There is a button on that eBay page to report the item. When I see obvious fakes like this one I always use this option, and eBay pulls these from their system quickly - and likely kills or suspends the seller's account.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well that was quick - the item is no longer available to bid on.

    Notice in the feedback history for this seller (coyotentiggy) he doesn't dabble in fragrances - more like auto parts, bikes, trailers, etc.

    It's completely real guys, he made it with his own two hands!!!

    Anyway, I got scammed a while back on a fake Gucci Pour Homme 1.

    The seller had 100% feedback but a further investigation would have revealed that he never sold any cologne before. It was all electronics.

    So you guys are saying i could go through all the fake bottles of By Man on ebay and get the listings flagged and removed? There'd only be 3 bottles left.

    I've use a couple Israeli eBayers, and nothing but positive things to say. I'll bet there are more scammers in the US.

    This is one of those cases where (like baseball cards and money) the discarded and misprinted bottles are worth more $$$$.

    I'll take one for $200 and stash it away!

    While we're on the subject, how's eBay for the Private Blends line? Are there a lot of fakes?

    I was thinking about buying Tuscan Leather on eBay.

    My affection for GV comes and goes, so that's not bad.

    I'll have to say that after being disappointed in supposedly such a classic in its Guerlain counterpart, I prefer GV over it.

    As much interest as there is for GV, it is, after all a Sephora commodity, and I'm just surprised that someone would go to any trouble to attempt even a poor counterfeit of a rather economical frag.

    Nobody else wondered that?

    Obviously there's a buyer for everything. It just struck me as strange.
