Repeated fake seller, cant seem to stop him!

Its so frustrating, I report, his listing goes down, then he relist and sell it anyway. The 1909 S cents are also atrocious and the 1932 S quarters. God it makes me sick to see how much he is hurting our community.
Look at this 1921 $P dollar. Clearly fake.
1932 S quarter with a magical disappearing rim and little wear lol

Can we get these down and prevent further damage to our community.

    What appears to be an obvious fake to you and me, may fool others. I don't know if you can get a person kicked off of ebay for good. And , even if you could he would just restart with a new ID. The coins he is selling are enough to fool the newbie and even some not-so-newbies. All we can do is keep on reporting. Even report the ones that are already sold and ebay may retract the bids and refund the purchasers. Ebay needs to put a coin expert spy on these treads and a penalty on repeat offenders.

    There really is no way to prevent these shysters from listing their garbage. They get taken down, then relisted...sometimes even change their ID - I assume many of these have idiots have several identities. I know sometimes the seller is not aware of the fake coin - but they are few compared to the volume of hoaxes and repeat listings. We just have to keep fighting them.... Cheers, RickO

    come on now no matter what one does scammers, con artists, and others will always be around in the real world and on the internet, nothing one can really do to get rid of these types

    they see people who have no idea about coins or whatever they are selling and that way they find people who will fall for these items

    Thieves, plain and simple. Given how ebay works, its wide reach, and the profit motive for the venue with each sale, it's clear that this will continue to happen. We realize that we're lucky enough to have become sufficiently knowledgeable and discerning to recognize the threat and avoid the trap. Beyond that, it's just a never ending game of whack-a-mole and it wears you down.

    Yes, this seller and other sellers of fakes are damaging the hobby.

    Seller has 100% feedback - including positives for fake coins.
