Hope I'm asking this in the right section...
I've recently bumped into this person's little collection of MJ sigs...
My concern is that all those sigs look too similar... I'm thinking they're signed by the same person, but I'm stumped as to if they're really Michael.
Thank you for any opinions/help in advance.
MODERATOR NOTE: All of Erick McKay Burgos' art folders on Deviant Art have been removed by him after being outted here. They were screen captured before his removal and are listed below. Please use them to reference as you read through this thread.
It doesn't surprise me at all that this crap (just like sports autograph forgeries) continues.
Ebay turns a blind eye to this crap as long as they continue to profit from the sales of forgeries.
And sellers of forgeries are well aware that there are no repercussions or penalties for knowingly listing and selling forgeries on EBay (an enabler).
His fake Jimi Hendrix chicken scratching is up for sale again too - he previously sold it to a private bidder........ TWICE. I guess he is taking cues from Joe Hendrix (another forger) who shills his crap up just a hair too far and gets stuck with it. Losers.
Starting price $99.99. No picture of the intended 'present' to Boutros Ghali, sadly :) Question: If this was supposed to be genuine ( which we know it isn't), how would an original signed MJ letter received by the UN Secretary General be suddenly up for sale? Very remiss of the United Nations to be letting their Sec General's private letters go missing like this :) :) :)
(Also 'on this day', MJ was in NY to announce the MTV video award nominations, and also announced his forthcoming HBO concert (later cancelled).

I have emailed their eBay account and given them information on Erick McKay (Presspass). Will see what happens. They pulled one for me previously. If pulled I will update this. Thanks Ballroom!
Good job. I've tried with a few items and never received a response.
The item has been pulled. They thanked me for reaching out to them in a professional manner. I always like to report it here too - to show they are pulling items. I did tell them about the discussion here as well, and I know some of the guys from there are on our forum. Good job guys. :)
