I know much has been said about the problems with TPAs and with eBay turning a blind eye to fake autographs. But is there even a way to let eBay know that certain items presently for sale on eBay are forgeries? I would like to report to eBay when items clearly are not legit, but the reporting options available on eBay do not seem appropriate for this scenario. There is nothing close to “this item is a forgery” or “not authentic.” Am I missing something?
no, you are not missing something because ebay wil do nothing about this problem and i can guess why ''the autograph section would be almost empty when they should solve this problem''.
Rob is correct eBay will not accept anyone but perhaps Beckett, JSA or PSA if they were to write. I have written directly to sellers using the "other" for contact and sometimes they will voluntarily remove something. Forgers or those dealing knowingly with forgeries know they are all but immune. Think of eBay as the trunk of the car that the guy selling phony watches sells out of.
One might guess it is not...profitable?
