Ok maybe fake was not the right wording to use - especially around here *ducks for cover* :D

A deceptive listing of a deception. I certainly learned my lesson and if the damage was $10, then I see it as money well spent.

I've been reading some of your posts Rob, you have a good eye for picking up where others left off ;-) Some nice pickups I noticed!

In that listing at least you can see the bib logo (it seems there are a few uninformed bidders!). In the case that the listing doesn't include a close up, request a photo of the bib and if you don't receive the photo or clarification . . . don't bid

Thats my advice and this method sorts it out every time thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie

My stock standard question to most Deceptions for sale these days is ..... 'Does it have a map of Australia and the words Deception' moulded onto the bib ???
Cheers Rob
