572-Ebay mjb2337 Dubai police fake replica number license plate

In January 2017 Ebay seller mjb2337 from New Jersey in the U.S.A was selling this very bad reproduction/replica Dubai police plate (top). He has many, many copies of each plate and there are two more photos of his other joke plates on here (do a search on here for mjb2337). He is selling them as novelties/replicas/reproductions but I don’t think most buyers realize just how badly made they are.

He stole the photo of the genuine plate (bottom) without permission from www.plateshack.com/y2k/ (which is a wonderful site for checking what a genuine plate looks like, especially for American, Central American, Caribbean, etc. plates) and then had it printed on thin flat aluminium blanks. Being a photo of a plate on a vehicle, it has the two bolts at the top and no slots at all. The bolts, dirt etc. are therefore printed on the plate.

On most of his replicas the slots are overlapping the holes or other slots on the genuine plate. It makes them look terrible and he has a very poor 90% rating on Ebay just now. A seller to be avoided at all costs.

You would be better having pictures of plates in your collection than any of these pieces of rubbish.
