Recently heard that store manager of popular shoe company was selling shoes on e-bay that he was stealing out of the back room to deliver. For the shoppers here, when is a deal too good to buy into? For the e-bay sellers, are there any checks for something like this? I decided to spend some time on the site (I had not before) and I found 4 shoe sellers who struck me as odd in the 1 hour I searched. Turns out that 3 were stores that did not stock shoes but had catalog accounts with a particular manufacturer and were just selling at low prices (these accounts have since been closed by the manufacturer), and the other was 'possibly' another theft situation. There is someone selling lots of 'Polo' shirts that seem to me would have to be fakes due to the quantities and someone who claims he has Z(big Italian brand) shirts direct from the factory. The Z(big Italian brand)shirts did not look familiar and the Z(big Italian brand) people had no idea what they were but are looking into it. Seems to me, anything available in quantity should be questioned.
