Like just about every collectable, violins are subject to fakery and claims of fakery – something that a person claiming to be a seller on the site alleges has led to the destruction of what the poster claims was a $2,500 instrument in a PayPal dispute. According to a post on the blog Regretsy the violin was smashed in accordance with PayPal’s terms and conditions. “I sold an old French violin to a buyer in Canada, and the buyer disputed the label,” the poster alleges. Although label disputes in the violin trade aren’t uncommon, the post says, “PayPal made the buyer DESTROY the violin in order to get his money back. They somehow deemed the violin as “counterfeit” even though there is no such thing in the violin world.” And yes, that’s what the PayPal T&C document says: if there’s a dispute over whether an item is authentic, “PayPal may require” the buyer “to destroy the item and provide evidence of its destruction” – in this case leaving the seller not only out-of-pocket, but also without a violin she claims “made it through WWII”.

It is surprising reading this that eBay's policy on fake items is to ignore them, I'd love to have seen certain items (such as False-Copyright etchings) being destroyed.

Morgan,


i've got my copy in front of me now (the new house is just around the corner), and it is the sane cover as the one listed on Amazon...it is. as I thought a small article on page 29; entitled 'From London' in red lettering, with Lord of the flicks in small lettering underneath.. the seller probably missed it.

From memory, I am pretty sure the cover is different from the Image shown on Amazon. I can check later.

Dior - I don't wish to cause you any trouble, so whenever you have time! Perhaps you remember if the cover shown on the Amazon page is the same as the one you have?
