Do you ever purposely go looking for fakes on ebay to report them?

  1. I spent like an hour doing this last night :lol: I think I reported about five obvious fakes in that time.

    I'm a trademark lawyer though, so I won't be surprised if I'm the only one who finds this an amusing hobby. ;)
     
  2. Nope, cant say I do...... that amount of time reporting them would take up the rest of my life!
     
  3. i did a few times when i was looking for a particular bag. but nope i never really look for fakes on purpose just to report them.
     
  4. Nope, can't say that I do, I will report ones I hapen to see, especially if people are bidding on it
     
  5. I would if I knew eBay cared, but if you tried to keep track of all the ones you reported, you'd be sad to see very few of them ever get pulled.
    I don't have that kind of time to waste.
     
  6. I also report fakes if I'm searching for a particular bag and I come across them.
     
  7. No
     
  8. I did when I came across some in searches. I bookmarked them and most had proceeded until the end so it was very discouraging.
     
  9. I have reported the ones that 'made me look' today. Last year I was reporting the fakes of the brand I know and few were pulled. Now they are pulled, makes me feel good. I even told a seller her bag was fake and she could get in trouble and she pulled her auction. Now the hijacks, ebay should be knocking those out before they get listed. I wonder, an account that has been unused for years and all of a sudden has 30-100 new items with the same title, high shipping, one day BIN? Humm, could they be for real?
     
  10. i don't search for fake bags for the sake of reporting them... but when i do search for a specific bag, but come across a fake, i will report it
     
  11. LOL um.. maaybee..... :sweatdrop: usually when I'm pissed off though. I like to think of it as crusading against evil :ninja:
     
  12. It seems though, that the ones that get reported to tPF in the "Authenticate this..." threads are pulled more quickly than the ones that are reported to eBay.
     
  13. I was, but then I stopped. I just dont have time lately. I report as many as I can though.
     
  14. I do when i'm bored at work...
     
  15. No ~~ Spend my time doing other things
