    Generally if it's a G1 item and it's coming from China, be very suspicious.

    I tend to filter out items that aren't from an Australia location when using Ebay AU.

    Good stuff MV75!!! I was trying to find out how to report this seller but you've already done it. Hopefully, they'll can all his auctions as some noobs have already put on bids despite the outrageous postage costs.

    We need a "how to report" guide for ebay since it's not obvious on what to do.

    Look at the very bottom of the auction page under other options. "Report this item" is there as a text link.



    Next choose:

    Conterfeits and copyright
    Potential Trademark Infringement
    Other replica or counterfeit items

    Click continue. Next it will give the option to include more item numbers and for you to put in a description if you choose to, then click send report.

    Thanks for the how-to-guide MV75. I'll know what to do next time I see a fake on ebay. Perhaps we could use the info in your post as a sticky? Just a suggestion.

    What amazing bargains! If only shipping to Australia didn't cost FIVE OR SIX times the starting price. Not only is he trying to sell knockoffs as genuine encores, he's also luring people in with "low" prices that will have you ripped off on shipping.

    maybe there needs to be a way to educate buyers as well. Encores can't possibly have English writing and look 99% like G1 US boxes. I hope people who buy these stuff should be discerning enough at least...
