I just heard from eBay's fraud department that "court-approved forensic document examiners" Christopher Morales and Nick Burzyk have been banned by eBay!
Nothing offered with their authentication opinions is allowed, and will be removed—either automatically or upon notification.
Their names will be published on eBay's list of banned authenticators within the next two weeks—their Web department has a backlog of work, so it takes some time.
If you aren't familiar with Morales, read my article, Christopher Morales: The Forger's Best Friend
Thank you eBay!!!
UPDATE: EBAY'S LIST OF BANNED AUTHENTICATORS
eBay has updated their banned authenticator list to include COAs from Nicholas Burczyk, Christopher Morales and TTA Authentic (formerly STAT Authentic).
Here is the full list of banned authenticators:
Autographed items with COAs and LOAs, or references to COAs and LOAs from the following people or organizations.
I have a Christopher Morales authenticated SRV album that I bought from Autograph Central.
Isn't Christopher Morales an authenticator used by American Royal Arts and Rock Star Gallery?
We should note that Morales was the guy who supposedly tested JSA in the Feb. 14 article on Autograph Alert. Can you blame them for looking at anything authenticated by Christopher Morales suspiciously?
I think it says a lot about the people behind Autograph Alert that they're promoting Christopher Morales as legitimate now. The "Dynamic Duo" Fighting to make the autograph hobby profitable for forgers.
Steve, yes I can as it's the article that's important not the source even when the source is Morales and the deception involved. Although has anyone heard from JSA on this as I have heard in other circles that they have gotten sloppy which is not good.
In no way does that all of a sudden make him "righteous" and I concur with the thought of the A/Alert people behind this trying to position it that way. It does however show poorly on JSA if it is as reported and we both know how "unlikely" that has proven to be in the past.
Ok, I have heard of this for awhile now. My question is:
Is the Christopher Morales you are talking about the same one from this website or is the one you are talking about using this guys Identity or trying to pass himself off as this guy ?
I ask this because this website makes alot of incredible claims on resume and documents
