That was what I thought. Thanks

Since money talks, I reckon the best way out is the following -
1. Get paid to find counterfeits
2. Sellers get charged for attempting to sell fakes and forfeit items. If seller wants to avoid this, they can pay a small fee for advice.
3. Buyers can ask for advice for a small fee.
Not a bad set of ideas in theory, but I’m certain there would be myriad issues with trying to implement something like that in reality.
You’re right that online sales venues should police their sites better, though. Steps like this would help. Will it happen? I doubt it. Maybe if some feel it is affecting their brand reputation.
I snort when I hear the names “Etsy” or “Craigslist” in conjunction with coins, for example. Which isn’t to say there’s not a little bit of good material and/or honest sellers on those sites sometimes.
It’s just that the monumental heaps of garbage and proliferation of stupid and/or shady sellers crowding out the worthwhile stuff gives me pause. I don’t browse them for coins for that reason. It’s just not worth my time to sift through all the nonsense.
