    This guy is banking off of these, which probably only cost him less than .50 ea to make or buy. About 1/4 of his pics are original/period....and thats how he scams people. They see some good ones, and so they think they all must be real.


    Here are more......notice that the SS photos are all on the same or similar paper, and also all have that "dark/black contrast" and lack detail.

    They are being sold for around $50 each so far. Complete Crook

    Sure is! I just cant believe people are paying this much for them, without doing a little research. There are more KZ fakes being sold in the $100's as we speak!

    Oh, and hes a "Private Auction" photo seller on Ebay.......RED FLAG!

    Couldn't you contact any buyers of these fakes and give them a link to this thread? At least they will know they have been conned and maybe if enough people complained to ebay, they might do something. At least the buyers could ask for their money back.

    Trust me ebay won't do anything. As long as items are moving and they are recieving their fees, they don't care if the items there are good or bad. This is obvious from their silly policy. You complain about a fake item that you bought for 20 euros and they reply: go to a police station, file a complain and when they give you a paper send it to us.
    P.s you need to pay more for the paper than what you have already paid for the fake item.
