Fake and sample number (licence) plate photos

689-Ebay jbeerd Egypt Qatar Pakistan Punjab 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 Egyptian, Qatari and Pakistan Punjab plates. He usually has 5 or 10 copies of each with the same numbers.

There are many, many things wrong with them.
The 3 ET plates all have a mismatch of western letters/numerals to the Arabic ones (so, for example, the green diplo is 511 39A in Arabic but 125 17H in western script!). The font is wrong but at least the 39A is the correct type of registration. The police plate has completely the wrong style of registration as well as the mismatch.
The Qatar and the Pakistan Punjab both are non-reflective, I guess because he can't get the correct reflective printed blanks.
The Q plate is missing watermarks and the hologram. It also has the font wrong and the number of points on the flag wrong.
The PAK plate has the bunch of flowers wrong and is missing it's laser etched serial number.

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 collector do not buy such expensive, rubbish so-called replicas.
