How Long Does It Usually Take Ebay To Pull Reported Items?

UpGrayeddUpGrayedd Posts: 497 ✭✭✭✭✭

I don't usually report coins to eBay because I am not an expert on counterfeits, but this one is painfully obvious. The "Trade Dollar" has a no motto Seated reverse.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/185667171393?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=7PwBsjq8QrW&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=Vonqx8b0RHW&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media


I messaged the seller and he was nice about it, but he either doesn't believe me or doesn't care, so I also reported it to eBay. However, I don't know if eBay will even listen to me since I'm a nobody.

I am also 99% sure all of his other coins are fake too. His 3 Legged Buffalo looks like the leg was cut off with a knife, and there is no die crack under the sheath. The details on the Morgan and the WL Half also don't look right to me, but I haven't reported these, because once again I'm not an expert on counterfeits.

    well do our best to report it, but often times there may be 20-30 forum members who report an item before it gets pulled lol

    Thanks Dan, I appreciate it. The seller's description said he doesn't know anything about coins and is selling them for his father-in-law. I know that can be a common misdirection for someone selling fakes, but I took him at his word, and said I was just trying to be helpful. As I said he was nice about it and thanked me. However, the fact that he hasn't pulled the listing and all his other coins are also most likely fake leads me to believe he knows exactly what he has.

    Sometimes eBay acts very quickly, but other times, slowly or not at all. I have reported the listing and messaged the seller, as well.

    Keep reporting it.... I know sometimes it disappears quickly, and other times it seems to take many complaints. Cheers, RickO

    Reported... but as others have stated, it just depends on whose eyes see the reports as to how soon the item gets pulled.

    Thanks Mark and everyone else. If you, @burfle23, or any other more experienced numismatists who know about counterfeits have time to look at his other listings (there are three other coins) and can confirm they are also counterfeits, as I believe, I would greatly appreciate it. If confirmed I will report them also. I am 99% confident they are fake, but because I'm not 100% I don't feel comfortable just yet.

    It looks like the seller ended the original listing, but relisted it as a new $0.99 auction. I'm not sure if he thinks that makes it okay or what.

    The Morgan Dollar, Buffalo nickel and Walking Liberty half also look to be counterfeits. Messages and reports sent. ;)

    It usually takes quite a few reports to get eBay to remove an auction. The seller has withdrawn the listing. When eBay closes the listing it disappears. If the seller shuts it down, you can still find it.
    The seller states that these coins are from her/his father in laws collection.

    She just listed more:

    What's interesting is that it shows the item was "ended by the seller due to an error in the listing".

    It’s not at all uncommon to see that when, for whatever reason, the seller chooses to end the listing.

    This happens a lot thanks to those of us that message sellers.
    I also find that the more time an auction has to run the better the chance of getting it removed by ebay. Short notice, weekends, etc do not always work.
    Ebay seems to act on those auctions ending the soonest but you can't be too late in reporting.

    Yes, I know this... but it shows that ebay didn't pull it; he did. Otherwise, this listing would just be poofed and not still visible. So perhaps either a) the seller's sob story might be true or b) he knows the scam's been exposed and decided to voluntarily pull the items to keep his account from getting canceled.

    I don't know that it matters, but the seller has several new coin listings. They are all low value mint and proof sets. For what it's worth there is no mention in the description of knowing nothing about coins or selling them for his father-in-law.
