It's incredible the amount of fake brand name watches on Ebay. For example if you type in 'Men's Tissot Watch' You will get loads come up, with a high percentage fake. The trouble is that the fakers fake the presentation box, the guarantee, the instructions and they even do a receipt. It's only the trained eye that knows what to look for can tell whether it's a fake. The 2 biggest giveaways is the price, normally they want about £150-£300 for a £650 new Tissot watch, and obviously the inside guts of the watch, which is cheap rubbish from China. There are sellers on there that are selling loads each month, making a fortune. If they get too many bad feedbacks about the watch turning out to be a fake, they change their username. But the ad is the same and from the same town or city.
Surely Ebay has an obligation to tackle this problem of people being ripped off. After all, they are making money out of all these fake sales. Or is that the point? As they are making money, they are turning a blind eye.
And yes, I know there are fake everything on there, but I high lighted the Tissot Watch because my friend brought an excellent fake one back from holiday, with all fake bits that go with it. It cost him about £25 in our money. He jokingly said if he gets desperate, he can put it on Ebay for about 3 hundred, like others seem to be doing. I just wondered what you thought.
