Same, looking at the listing you couldn't mistake it lol.
though $399 for a replica lol. What an idiot.


WTB 4 to 6 grams of pure gold. Don't care if it is coin, bar or granules. Near spot, suits anyone who has been tempted to open a certicard or just have some granules to make a ring

Buyer omitted to reading the fine print neutral

Tho the sale titles are very misleading from the seller. Buying gold from ebay is a fools game

Re: FAKE soon to appear as authentic 1 oz Perth gold bar

the title is confusing.....enough to make you want to read the fine print.
however only a fool buys based on a title without reading the body of an advert.
as it is said, a fool and his money are easily parted

Re: FAKE soon to appear as authentic 1 oz Perth gold bar

If you have a look at the negative feedback, its all from the same buyer - obviously someone who stupidly thought they were getting a bargain and went buy buy buy.

I hate all the fake gold on ebay (have bought a ring which was fake, but thankfully got refunded), but on the plus side at least the advert looked pretty suss to begin with ... but yes, the problem is these are highly likely going to be on-sold for bullion prices at some point, and not everyone has access to analysis equipment.

That seller has some ugly stuff in his listing.
Is the pic above the fake item? It doesn't state as such and hence surely the PM would be concerned?

Shouldn't be allowed to sell it at all, regardless of how it's advertised.
Perth mint needs to protect their products and monitor ebay far better than they do currently.

The seller deserves the negative feedback if the auction title is that.

When I see such posts, I just report the hell out of it. It usually gets taken down.
