interesting. i think the key is to buy things you know - for example, i buy a lot of Allen Edmonds because i know what they look like in reality and would easily be able to tell if they're fake or not. i don't think anybody has really tried to fake a large quantity of Allen Edmonds.
obviously, if you are inexperienced, ebay can be troublesome. but if you know what you're looking for and buy quality items which are rarely faked as well as being difficult to fake, ebay is a great way to go.
Whereas something like mall-brand denim is tricky (thinking of 7FAM, COH, etc), because the actual quality of the jeans isn't much better than a pair of $20 jeans.
