BEWARE !! Three U.K EBAY sellers dominating market selling FAKES

I'd like to bring to your attention these 3 sellers in the hope that something can be done in the autograph community to stop them from selling fakes on EBay.They are:

maconstance2012

mayflowersteps

bound4u0

I believe they are all linked and were also selling items through Simon Parrs auctions. Just look at the list of items they are selling between them,is there anyone famous they've missed ? I believe they are using some kind of Robotic machine to create these autographs. To anyone who knows anything about autographs many of these are blatant forgeries,the problem is they all have 100% feedback !! A Princess Diana signed pic which sold for over £500 last week through maconstance2012 had previously not sold on Simon Parr's auction.

These people should be locked up,but what can we all do about it ?

Yep these are all works he's also bought.  Schulz, Disney, on and on... from art to autographs he does it all.

Here is an item he bought under his Parr eBay  $39.95

The photo no longer shows but it was this item that he later sold on his Live auctioneer (we tracked him as he bought and sold this exact item - and many more)

I have one that came from Simon Parr auctions although now called Kristen Leigh Auctions, and the item came with a laminated COA from Andrew Salmon who issued it as Signatories.co.uk I think this was one of his previous ebay names. so I assume he is supplying the items or the coa’s for Parr. The item I have not authentic as I have shown it to others and they all tell me the same thing, that its is either an autopen signature or a fake of some kind.

That looks a lot like Pig Pen. LOL

That's an awful "Pig Pen" and the sig sucks too!

I wonder if the COA says Charlie Brown or Pig Pen, he should at least research beforehand lol

I've found him again ! For all of those who have been following this thread there is another update. He's also trading as:

barnebarton

He's selling more low key items but most look machine printed. Clearly he's also been trading in this name for some time as there is considerable feedback. Once again same location (plymouth u.k) . Buyers beware!

Sorry, can't find any offer and when I click on sold items it reads "This listing (**********) has been removed, or this item isn't available." ;-))))

Hi yes they've been removed again. But just when we think we're winning they're starting to relist again ! Complete forgeries.
