    I'm a bit confused. Your comment about a 30 day vacation. From Yuni, which I've never heard of, or Facebook, or CT?

    ahhhhh the old "Powered by Shoplazza"

    If people are dumb enough to think this is real, I can't fix them, that's for sure. My problem with this is those people will buy them, then try to sell them to others and then scammed becomes scammers, but then it questions the authenticity of every one of them out there. More than likely these types of things are just looking to steal their money from Paypal anyways, they won't send them the item.
    the pictures look like the legit item and Mint packaging though.

    Everything "powered by shoplazza" is a scam. it takes a second to look it up on the internet.

    reviews are mostly "the fake company sends you cheap worthless junk, or a fake tracking number, so you have a tracking and Proof of delivery so Paypay won't refund, then they make you return the wrong item at your expense to attempt to get a refund, which they never process since they are out of country and nothing you can do." if someone doesn't look into who they might be buying from, I really can't fix that. not every ad on facebook or the internet is a legit business, it's the same as the scammy junk that comes to your mailbox.

    There's so many coin scammers on Facebook now it would probably fill a 20 page thread just listing them all. Each time I see one I give them a laughing emoji. It's gone past the point of no return in flagging them.

    Any shopplaza site is not to be taken seriously. these show up on facebook frequently.

    They have a 2021 ASE listed, at the very bottom there is this picture, which I assume is what you would really receive, if anything.

    Notice the image uses a "coin" with a pre 2008 reverse.

    Hmm, I don't collect these intensively, but I did not realize there was more to the two reverses than just the one little line by One Dollar

    Very interesting, first I noticed were the awful feathers.

    ...I just compared real 2007 and 2008...there are “enhanced” feather details on real ASEs...none at all on the sideways coin in the picture...that coin appears to be a facsimile (read that: fake). @Conder101 ...caught the usage...the U/UNITED does not have a “tail” ...a feature of the new reverse of 2008. They really cobbled together a real frankenstein...all for show with no substance....jmho...Spark
