691-Ebay jbeerd Lebanon Jordan Austria Equatorial Guinea Ghana South Korea Nigeria fake replica number license plates

In February 2018 Ebay seller jbeerd (the same person as carplatespro) from Moscow in Russia was trying to sell these replica Lebanon, Jordan, Austria, Ghana, South Korea, Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria plates. He usually has 5 or 10 copies of each with the same numbers.

There are many, many things wrong with them:-
Wrong colour plate, wrong fonts, wrong words, missing embossed seals, missing watermarks, slots in the wrong place, graphics printed wrong, missing embossed areas, dashes when there should be none………a lot of problems.

Why would you want in your collection a fake plate that is not only so very wrong but that many other people also have? Why not just make a drawing of the plate on a piece of cardboard or have a picture printed on card from the www of a real plate and put that in your collection. Much cheaper and better than a fake plate.

The big problem is going to come later when some of these plates get into the market. From a photo during a sale or trade it could be difficult to tell if the plate or plates are genuine or not to someone without the correct knowledge. It just proves that any plate you bid on or trade for MUST be checked against the huge number of photos of genuine plates available on the www.

This just makes everything difficult for everyone. Reproductions are very bad for the hobby and if you care about the future of the hobby, it is better you do not buy reproductions, especially such poor quality ones like this seller makes. Real collectors do not buy such expensive, rubbish so-called replicas.
