I'm actively pursuing eBay to be more responsible with regards to the bootleggers who have been allowed to flourish on the system.
Need your assistance with a little experiment to determine how effective the report item button on each listing really is.
We all know TinaLove1991 and how this operation has been successfully peddling their own unlicensed screen prints - passing them off as vintage - for, what, 4 years now?
Thanks to Hermosa we were able to connect the dots between the Mahagamage "vintage" label and Tony Mahagamage who is reported to be the supplier behind TinaLove1991 inventory, if not the actual account holder.
Please report this item which is undoubtedly fake - given the cut of the t-shirt, the too dark purple color and Tina's never ending supply of it. Most of what they have for sale is fake but lets focus on one at a time.

Use the report item button on the listing and please report for:
Reason for Report: Counterfeit
Detailed Reason: Bootleg and counterfeit media
Additional: Unauthorized photocopies (seems to be the most fitting)
Add in a mention of this sellers fraudulent activities on eBay in the Brief Description field.
Then please submit it.
Please post in here and let us know you submitted a report so we can gauge exactly how many people have participated in this. Then we might be able to figure out what it takes to trigger an automatic listing suspension (if there is one) or how many reports eBay needs before a representative decides to take action.
