Hi seen a top for me son on ebay seller is top rated. the top is an oneill one with tags but in his blurb it says due to copyright laws labels may be marked or removed. is this some sort of scam are they fake. he is a top rated 100 % seller with over 1300 i dont understand. anyone any ideas. i would put a link in if i could but not sure i am allowed so better not.

Ive seen labels marked through or cut in shops to indicate that they were sale stock or seconds-maybe he has these in bulk? never heard of it being anything to do with copyright-makes no sense.

I know a Nike hoodie I bought in TK-Maxx had the labels crossed out with a black marker. Could well be a slight imprection, i.e seconds?

Probably best to message him and ask?
I would then you know for sure rather than peeps here trying to guess

ive seen M&S coat with the inside tags and lables removed, prob means they are seconds

May just mean shop labels are removed or crossed out,

yes thanks i will send him a message...it seems very above board so i will just see what his reply is.
thanks

most labels marked or removed are to stop buyers returning item to the shop for refund.

also, where i work, we sell alot of stuff for closed down companies or companies changing packaging, so sometimes the name is blacked out,, same reason...so customer can't buy cheap..then return to store for big refund/exchange

[COLOR="Blue"]its to prevent you buying it, then returning to nike, jjb etc for a refund/exchange of more thAN YOU PAID, NOTHING DODGY :thumbsup:[/COLOR]

sorry, didn't realised i'd hit caps lock

ive seen this on bay too and wondered why it said copyright law...i also thought maybe it was dodgey as usually if theyre removed its as been said so you cant return to stores...

Bid.tv used to sell similar crap.

Thanks guys..sure they are genuine as people say good quality. Like you say probably to stop me trying to return to orignal shop. Even if they are seconds i dont mind as no one as mentioned poor quality and if they are last years stock my son isnt quite into all that yet. he knows the brand names but last years wouldnt bother him in the slightest. no doubt that will change in a few years.
appreciate all your comments.

My mother-in-law and wife used to go to a shop called Gordons in Yeiwsley that cut the labels down the middle with a pair of scissors and it was for the exact reason you stated.

Imagine buying a factory seconds M&S jumper thats still part of the current range for a tenner, buying another from M&S. Taking the seconds one back to M&S using their receipt and stating that it's got something wrong with it and you'd like a refund. Now you have a perfectly good jumper for a tenner thats worth a lot more. So think I resellers of factory seconds have to mark the label to remove the possibility of this kind of fraud.

possibly grey imports.......

we used to import cd's from the far east but had to remove all barcodes and they had to have a hole drilled through the case/clipped sleeve to differntiate them

Yes that makes perfect sense. i have risked it and got a tee shirt. Everyone has given the seller good feedback so whatever the faults are must be minor. Hopefully my son wont even notice.
Thank you
