I dont know yet.....

Their have been some questionable deals on e-bay
a lot over the past that I suspect were stolen but could not prove it
and just wonder how they got their hands on it....

A while one fellow sold 20 1 lb rolls of STERLING lead free for 10 bucks a roll and I stumbled onto it too late....

you can find these deals every so often if you watch. probably when they get desperate for drug money for the weekend.... ---

I got all I need right now but the stuff never spoils .
I dont have any employees to walk off with it so . I know eventually it will get used up ---- it just sits there on the shelf collecting dust....

I don't remember if it was Ebay or Amazon, but I purchased some men's after-shave. The brand was Aqua Velva Ice Sport. I can't find it at the stores so I went on line to buy it.

When it arrived it was counterfeit. I have some authentic still at home and compared the stuff at home with the item that was shipped to me and they definitely did not match.

I contacted the seller who practically begged me not to give her a bad review. So I didn't. She happily refunded the purchase price.

Lesson: I'm very leery about what I purchase on line.

I doubt Wolverine Brass solder is counterfeit. But some items may be knock-off imitations. Like plumbing tools, fittings and such.

My 2 cents.

I guess that E-bay is basically no different than a glorified pawn shop in many ways..... you really dont know who or what is going down on what you buy......

Tango has mentioned how the UPS guys steal stuff and sell it on E-bay days later.....and has put up u-tube videos about it....

its the wild west...

Or just the other day I read in the news that a man who worked un-loading cargo at an airport, stole a diamond ring off of a plane {may have been a UPS plane, I don't recall}. The ring was in a small box and he tucked it under his shirt. The ring was worth $160,000!. The idiot pawned it for like $50 or so. He got caught.
