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.

Erick McKay - Michael Jackson forgery from his always-for-fun account. This is the account where he pretends to be a 70 yr old man who bought items from an auction years ago and he's too old now and wants to pass on the good deals to others. He uses broken English and pretends he is naive. He has previously sold forged Beatles items from this account, as well as MJ's etc.

so i brought i fake michael jackson drawing of the seller marc_at2014 in January this year via paypal how can i get my money back from this scammer?
If you paid PayPal funded by a credit card, it may have buyer protection for as much as a year or more—typically at least 6 months. If they do a chargeback with PayPal, PayPal may be able to get your funds back from the seller.
Call PayPal and eBay in any case, but if you funded your PayPal by a credit card, find out what their terms are first.
thank you, if they ask for proof that it is not authentic, should i refer them to this thread? i have since brought mj items signed and worn with photo proof etc from reliable sources, since this was the first one i brought i had no idea what inwas doing regarding mj items tbh
They'll probably want authentication opinions from PSA/DNA, Beckett or JSA. The autograph will have to be seen by the company and that's probably about $100, which you won't get back most likely.
But first find out if you have a shot at getting a refund. Maybe eBay will ask the seller to refund your money. You've tried to get a refund from the seller, I take it? What did they say if you did?
Steve, I think it is also worth asking the amount of money Adam paid for it.
Is it worth it?
Just consider it a "lesson learned?"
thanks for the help, i paid $225, it wanst via ebay it was paypal direct, i will send a message now saying i want my money back and see how that goes down
If you ask the seller he is just going to scoff at you, he is the actual forger. He will claim this forum is wrong, and that nobody can tell you unless you are actually there when its signed that its a forgery. He will go on about how the folks that do authenticate are no good or have court cases against them, and on and on. This is his routine.
How did you manage to buy items from him without going through eBay?
Since I track his moves I'd like to know how he's operating outside of that (we have seen him use fake hispanic profiles on FB - to do that, if there is a new one can you post it?)
Can you also post the item you bought? That way it is tracked as well. Thanks tons Adam for coming onto the forum and posting here.
no problem im glad i joined, i didnt want to sell it on to someone else knowing it wasnt authentic, i brought a thriller one i will add pics tonight when i get home.
