I have recently purchased a number of items from a seller on Ebay!Led to believe I purchased a Beswick BLACK ABERDEEN ANGUS CALF -1st version-Charlton Catologue price £1000,on receipt of item I could quite easily see this iitem had been airbrushed to look BLACK but was actually a poor fraudulent,disguised & tampered model.i.e Hereford calf( same model but had been sprayed black)Catologue value £135.00.Also bought a Beswick Comical Satin Black Foal but also had been tampered with i.e sprayed black,actually a brown model worth approx. £45.00.When purchased I believed from two different independent sellers but whilst PO BOX numbers used and different addresses,the contact telephone numbers were the same!!PLEASE BE AWARE THESE ITEMS WERE NOT AS DESCRIBED,TAMPERED WITH & WHY DOES ANY LEGITIMATE SELLER HAVE TO USE PO BOXES,DIFFERENT EBAY ID'S ETC!!!!I HAVE ALSO RETAINED 1 ITEM royal doulton figure which i have since taken to auction and been advised this was restored!SELLER STATED NO VISIBLE RESTORATION,DOES NOT MEAN,NONE UNDERTAKEN OR AWARE OF!!THIS SELLER DID REFUND ITEMS ,HOWEVER I DO BELIEVE THIS WAS NOT A GENUINE MISTAKE!!!!
If it seems to good to be true,it usually is!!!!!
