This one takes the cake. It is a copy of one of Jeff Garrity's auctions, complete with the Rare-Plane Detective logo and Jeff's smiling face!

Why not report it to ebay. Not much we can do here.

September 12 2017, 4:09 PM 

Not a fraud if the merchandise is as it is said to be. So he copied and pasted.

Interesting, seller has a "0" rating. First item ever auctioned?

To be fair

Chinese sellers on eBay aren't all fraudulent by any means. I routinely buy from Chinese sellers with no trouble at all. Generally great prices, fast shipping and good packaging have been my experiences. 100% fraud-free here.
