Fake and sample number (licence) plate photos

675-Ebay jbeerd Syria fake replica number license plate

Since November 2017 Ebay seller carplatespro and jbeerd (both the same person) from Moscow in Russia has been trying to sell these replica Syrian plates. He has at least 5 copies of it all with the same number.

The problems with these Syrian plates is that:
1) Genuine Syrian plates are rather badly made and this is very shiny, new and made on a quality press with quality dies.
2) The BIG problem though is that Syrian plates are much smaller than European standard size but he obviously does not have the machines or blanks to make them correctly. His rubbish replicas are European size and so very, very wrong/fake.

Do you really want in your collection a fake plate that is not only 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.
