during the Great Viral Panic, I have been spending far more time on the ‘bay than usual. Yaaarrrr!
And I have seen that one can nowadays even buy fakes/‘replicas’/knock-offs of the Vector
If you haven’t seen them, here is a link to a UK vendor who is selling the knock-offs in bulk, under several listings.
I hate the fakers, and I hate the vendors of fakes.
I mean, this guy for instance could just import genuine (made under licence by Luxor) Vectors in bulk from India, put on a 100% mark-up, and sell those in the UK - and in the process make himself a lot of money that I wouldn’t begrudge him at all. Other UK sellers are doing just that.
But no. He’s selling the knock-offs.
If you are feeling Very Bored whilst at home during lockdown, and are in need of a way to try to kill time (when it just won’t die), you could, like me, waste away the long empty hours by playing the futile game of whack-a-mole that is reporting fake items to eBay.
I suspect that the auction site will do nothing at all about the fakes that we report, but it is at least something to do during lockdown.
I hope that y’all stay well, stay safe, and don’t get fooled in to buying knock-off pens, converters, cartridges, inks, etc.
