Watch Out For Con Artists !!
There are a great deal of fake Playboy items for sale on eBay. Unfortunately most people assume things are genuine and have no way of knowing until the goods arrive. Well here are a few tips which may help you in your search for genuine Playboy gifts.
- FEEDBACK - Check out the feedback of the seller - Filter it by items sold and see if there are any comments which give the game away. Negative comments complaining about fakes are obvious enough but you will be surprised at the amount of people who leave positive feedback as long as the fake is reasonable - they do however say things like "Fast delivery - good copy for the price" or "Item fake, but what do you expect for this price"
- PHOTOGRAPHS - Look for similar photographs on other peoples listings - When people are listing brand new official products, they tend to use a professional product shot rather than an original photograph of their own - I always use professional shots for my brand new items to demonstrate that the item you receive will be the same as the photo.
- PRICE - If it's too good to be true, it probably is - If you want a proper product be prepared to pay proper prices
- ASK SELLER A QUESTION - Drop the seller a quick question to ask if the product is genuine, if you get a response along the lines of "I think so" or "I'm not sure", then I guess you know the answer - A seller selling will always answer in the affirmative promptly
