I just heard from eBay's fraud department that "court-approved forensic document examiners" Christopher Morales and Nicholas 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.
Below is a mixture of crap "authenticated" by Burczyk and Morales.
We have never observed an authentic autograph with COA from Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
As we all are aware of, "Nicholas Burczyk" NEVER authenticated any sports autographs. His name has been dragged through the mud by Mr. Florida and that's how his name has been attached to thousands of "Florida" forgeries.
Look at this crap.
The majority of the "autographed" photos in this blog are Florida forgeries; they aren't even hand-penned by a forger. They are basically copies produced on inkjet paper.
And as we all know Nicholas Burczyk never authenticated any sports autographs. His name was used and dragged through the mud by Mr. Florida.
Crap with a worthless COA from Christopher Morales.
Crap with a worthless COA from Nicholas Burczyk.
Look at this "Florida" mass-produced crap with a worthless COA from Nicholas Burczyk, who, by the way, as we well know, never authenticated any sports autographs. Mr. Florida has been dragging his name thru the mud for 20 years.
Look at this garbage with a worthless COA from Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
Look at this crap (mass-produced "Florida" forgery) with a worthless COA from Nicholas Burczyk. Nicholas Burczyk never authenticated any sports autographs as we all know. Mr. Florida dragged his name through the mud by using his name to "authenticate" thousands of forgeries.
Look at this crap with a worthless COA from Chris Morales. Notice the "pig on a lipstick" framing. This most likely originated from the now-bankrupt AtAuction.com where they sold thousands upon thousands of forgeries to consumers and military personnel.
Forensic BS COA.
Look at this crap. Mass-produced forged Mickey Mantle with a COA from Burczyk.
The thing about Burczyk, is that Nicholas Burczyk never authenticated one sports autograph.
His name has been dragged through the mud by Mr. Florida.
Look at this crap with a worthless COA from Christopher Morales.
Morales, who is deservedly on Ebay's Banned COA List, has literally authenticated thousands upon thousands of forgeries.
Look at this crap with a worthless COA from Coach's Corner (Lee Trythall and Scott Malack).
Check out this laughable and forged Mickey Mantle baseball with a worthless COA from Christopher "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
Look at this crap.
Laughable Mantle forgery with worthless COA from Nicholas Burczyk.
Of course, there is no proof that Nicholas Burczyk ever "authenticated" any sports autographs.
Some dirtbag simply dragged his name through the mud by using his name with fraudulent COAs.
Look at this crap.
Typical "Florida" forgery that was mass-produced in the thousands.
Typical garbage certed by Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
Morales has "authenticated" thousands of forgeries. Just "Forensic" BS!!!
Look at this crap!!!
The Chris Morales hologram.
Typical set of Mickey Mantle, DiMaggio and Billy Martin forgeries that are produced out of Florida.
Poor Nicholas Burczyk, who never examined one sports autograph, has had his name dragged through the mud for years and associated with the "Florida" forgeries.
More crap from Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
Here's another laughable and forged Mickey Mantle photo. This has a double-whammy. Worthless COA from Nicholas Burczyk and hologram from Chris "I Never Saw An Autograph I Didn't Like" Morales.
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
