Sigh.  Look: the person who drew this is a fraud.  He is emboldened because the way things work these days he knows he isn't going to get caught. 

Also he made one teeny tiny mistake a couple of months ago and, I'm delighted to say, I figured something out.  Good luck, dude!

I don't think so. Does this bid history look like normal people bidding? Nope. The increments are all wrong.  The guy has like four accounts (actual number rounded) -- it's likely he's shill bidding it to give it the illusion of motion.

I agree I already had one friend contact me about it. I’m worried someone will think they’re getting the deal of the century and be the “winning” bidder of a piece of S#i+.

i agree most of the bids are coming from this thief and some of his friends.

ahh this burns me up but thanks for catching this one gang.

i caught a fraud 22x33 painting supposedly done by David Finch and Jim Lee for sale on the boards. While I was contacting David to back me up that it was a fake I saw a board member “I’ll take it” post and the item closed.

David let me know it was 100% fake. I warned the board member before he paid for it.The other board member selling was shocked it was a fake and I provided info to him also. He bought it on eBay. He’s trying to get PayPal to get the money back.

David said he didn’t paint anything this size in oil. timlin_1808 apparently passed this one off according to the selling board member.

Bids are being cancelled, down to $880 now.

The seller doesn’t even reply when you send a message. I asked him where he got the page from.

Annnnd it's gone.  That's an unusual outcome -- thank you to everyone who reported it, if that's in fact what got it delisted.  Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom!

It's been pulled. Did anyone take a screen shot of it so those of us who didn't see it, can take a look?

Fakes in collectibles doubtless move every day.  At some point, it's up to the collector... there's only so much we can do, sigh.
