    Hey Folks,

    If this is discussed somewhere please let me know. Is the authentication process that Ebay uses any good?

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Yes and moral of the story there is

    Never buy luxury goods from nasty platforms like Ebay and Amazon, who both look the other way and allow for criminals to work in peace on their sites. We have seen examples of AD's and TAG Heuer service centers confirming fakes as real so I wouldn't trust an "authentication process" provided by the crooks who run Ebay

    I read a lot of that thread prior to posting the question. I don't see where it answers my specific question.

    Anyone actually see a test of the Ebay authentication? As is sometimes done with car repairs, one takes in a known product and see what they say. In this case one would take in a very good fake and see if they pronounce it real.

    Thanks,
    Robert
