    Hey Ya'll I found this listing a little while ago assuming it was VIP (pics are theirs and so is description). But it's some account from China and the guy has a rating of "0". I contacted VIP to give them a heads up on their property being infringed upon. Additionally, I contacted the seller and told him the Jig is up and i was contacting VIP, Ebay, and informing members of the prop collecting community. Dont know if it's worth the risk, something def seems fishy.

    I had also emailed VIP as soon as this showed up, but received no reply. - but it looks like nobody has been suckered by it as it hasn't had any bids.

    As a buyer, seller, trader of props my biggest goal in life is to aggressively pursue scams. i hate the bad name it creates across the board for people trying to initiate legitimate tranasctions

    Some one took a picture of my swords i made, then made an account that mirrored my own and sold it as me, after not receiving it, they came to me demanding I sell them the sword they paid for.. Super crappy...

    Well fortunately EBAY removed the scammer. VIP reached out and thanked me for bringing it to their attention :)
