One of eBay’s most daunting tasks is keeping up with those trying to turn a quick buck by selling counterfeit merchandise as original.
It’s a problem that goes beyond the realm of sports memorabilia.
eBay, wildly successful as it’s been since launching less than 15 years ago, is also a doorway to sales for those who deal in fake merchandise.
While there are thousands of good deals to be had on a daily basis and the vast majority of sellers are honest, there are some who ply their trade in big ticket goods.
Who’s responsible for policing the site? eBay says it’s doing all it can and continues to crack down, but there is one well-publicized lawsuit that claims they’re not doing enough.
