Good luck, guys! Unfortunately, it's my impression that eBay doesn't care.

I had the same issue with dealing with them on some high end cards that I bought and paid quite a bit for. Being a graphic designer by trade for Fortune 100 companies as soon as I saw the cards I could tell that there was some heavy photoshop work done.

I complained to them and eBay, got my money back and was banned to bid on any of their auctions which was 100% fine by me since you really don't know what you are getting until it's in hand. Shady, shady, shady!

I didn't say anything because I just assumed everyone knew about that. There has already been threads spoken about them in the past.

Agreed. As long as eBay gets their $$$ that's all they care about.

This. Ebay feedback is a joke, having to return a card that was mislabeled is a waste of time and at best should get a neutral, even if a refund was given.

How many here would be happy to order the steak, receive the chicken and leave the restaurant 45 minutes later without eating.

It was weird, but it was the first time in years I'd tried to leave negative feedback and just figured it had been just another asinine policy change.
I have heard of similar situations. as long as they make their percentage....

Default Doctoring Scans

Check this out - he/she (Battlefield0516) bought this set from prewarcardcollector back in February 2014. Described as Ex+ Now set broken up - relisted as singles by Battlefield0561 with the usual puffery over-hype language. OK, beyond all that - check out the doctoring scans! Prewar's on left, Battlefield's on right. Clearly photo-shopping these scans to make the cards look better than before. Brighter, more contrast. Rounding corners magically turn sharp! Marks and blemishes disappear!

Fraud
noun
1.
deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage.
