Last week I contacted an Ebay seller who was selling the pink heart vase, l=
isted as new.  We emailed back and forth several times for several days. I =
tried to answer her questions to the best of my knowledge and with the help=
 of my McCoy books.  She turned out to be a very nice woman who had bought =
fakes unknowingly from a wholesaler.  By the end of our conversations she h=
ad confirmed that she would no longer purchase from this particular person,=
 and regretted any confusion she had caused to buyers.  My point is, there =
are a lot of sellers who just don't know (not including those "Power Seller=
s") and are taken in with the same sort of persuasion that is then passed o=
n to the Ebay buyers.  Occasionally contacting one of these people, with ki=
ndness, may be another way to cut back on the profits of Jenson and others.=

I confronted a dealer in a mall recently  over a piece of Mcjunk.
up until that point I had considered that person trustworthy.
After the fact I realized that he had mistakenly bought a fake ( kitty stri=
ng holder) and was trying to sell it to be rid of it. He was asking 65.00 f=
or the piece.
At that point I broke all ties with her.
