Forgeries Liberated Area (LA)

Online auctions have proven ineffective when it comes to removing reported forgeries so help others to avoid these pitfalls by giving details of any fakes and fakers you see.

A new born eBay cheater is "linshop2017" who started today with a massive pile of shit:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/China-ROC-liber ... 3181098795
http://www.ebay.com/itm/China-roc-STAMP ... 3181070466
etc. etc.

Some small hint: if a eBay seller use the words "error" in item head line, you can assume for 90% is a fake. The cheater use "we only accept paypal." in his item description, seems there are a group of cheater not only one guy.

Interesting forgery from an eBay seller located (as so often) in USA:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-China-Pro ... 3060438231

The forgery is "better" as usual as they tried this time to copy a real design (Pos 7 of the left part of the large sheet 2 x 9 stamps)

In real the stamp looks dramatically different (I add as second scan).
