Bad & Getting Worse
Posted by Penman on January 11, 2018, 12:02 pm, in reply to "Mismatched Eversharp coronet pen on ebay"
This practice is rampant on the 'bay and getting worse. Recently there have been a number of inaccurate posts on sales of "vintage" Arco pens. The pens are legitimate Omas but are not, by anyone's definition "vintage." I was foolish enough to think that maybe the sellers did not know the difference between modern (post 2004 +/-) Arcos and those which are truly "vintage." When I politely tried to educate them via private message I got some scathing, truly venomous replies. These scammers know just what they are doing.
Perhaps even worse is I forwarded the messages to the eBay administrative site and they seemed totally unconcerned as long as the pens were authentic Omas.
As always, caveat emptor, especially on eBay!!
