    I think that the Waste Lands is legit, despite the funky S. The American Short stories is legit.

    Still interested in thoughts on this.
    For my purposes if it's fake feel free to not be nice...
    Judging signatures is more art than science. At least when done from online pics.

    Some forgeries look "good" and some legit signatures appear sketchy. If there is any real doubt then I don't find it worth the risk. Sometimes I'll say it's fake and sometimes I'll be a little less sure and say I don't like it.

    Some forgery sellers also sell legit signatures. If they offer and then defend anything questionable, I don't buy anything from them. If they pull the questionable item, they could be legit with a bad item.

    Hmm...this is a greyfell. They live only about an hour away. I'm wondering should I just do a return or have it authenticated (it's the only way ebay will just automatically do the return)...anyone else do this with them, do they make it difficult?

    How does he have no negative feedback then...perhaps I should have it authenticated to expose him...

    Greyfell's items are trash. To date, I've not seen a single authentic SK-signed item for sale. Do not waste time (or your money) having this authenticated. There are no better experts out there than on this site. It's fake.

    Believe me, this site is all I need...that being said ebay will not care about a forum and for me to really have this done correctly without them wiggling out I'd have to have it authenticated, provide that proof, and then bring in my personal merchant support. There are new rules in place to protect top rated sellers and almost all of it makes sense and is good but it actually protects sellers who deal in fake items unintentionally (i've brought it up to them) so this has to be done with every t crossed...

    Just open a PP (presuming you paid via PP) dispute and tell them that the definitive resource for Stephen King information, and signature verification collectively and unanimously said it's a bogus signature. Feel free to attach images from this page to prove the signature is fake. I'd use the images from 1989 forward.

    I am not worried about the money. I can make one call to ebay and have that back quickly. I am saying I'm considering ensuring the feedback for the seller reflects what they are selling. As you can guess ebay protects buyers in some ways because money is money. They do not like people selling fake items, that I do know, but if it's a grey area then they will do what they can to keep that money rolling in. Screenshots from a forum will not mean a thing to them, even if some of them in merchant support were to be members. As I said, it's my number one source but that's not how the world of ebay works and frankly for good reason. People could just get into a frenzy over something they don't understand and point to it when talking to ebay support.

    I did notice they aren't even a top rated seller and they don't offer free returns so this comes down to how much I'm driven to expose them. I've taken down about 10 accounts over the past couple of years for dealing in fake signatures, mostly on music stuff. I have allowed them to get neutral feedback by also refunding me the costs associated with proving it was fake, but only one even chose that illustrating just how much these folks value money over a decent business.

    I'll say this, starting up a claim in Paypal is likely the worst way for me to do this b/c of my status with ebay. They would say "why in the world wouldn't you just call us". With my type of store you get individuals with a direct number and they have common sense discretion rather than the normal ebay support everyone else gets that takes forever to get to and they are just reading off a sheet.
