Many of the posts use the same grammatically incorrect phrase "The people's bank of China issued"

+1 nice catch.

These three sellers, ling-jessica, luckstores2004 and adc-teemo, locate at Shenzhen, China and they also sell the same cheap necklace. Perhaps, they are the same person with three eBay IDs.

All silver pandas listed by these three sellers are fake with a wrong temple design.

Reported.

I have fallen on several fakes in fake NGC and PCGS holders because I found prices interesting.  Not to mention raw coins.
In the end...it turns out to be a huge loss.
You need to buy from reliable suppliers even if it costs a little more.

I started to report them a few days ago. eBay does not seem to have done anything.

Another seller (baobaoyuyu00), located in the same city as previously mentioned three sellers, listed three fake pandas. They are the same low quality fake coins.

The pictures of those fake coins are attached for future reference.

Call the police on us (eBay/PayPal) or on the seller?  Sound more like eBay/PayPal is giving you and everyone else the finger.

PandaOrLunar: They told me to call my local police and report the seller.

By the way,  I had an eBay return awhile back. But before the buyer reported they would be returning the item for refund he tried to extort some of his payment from me. He made the argument that the wheel refund would be a hassle for me so I should just send him $200. When I balked he reminded me  he had my shipping address,  which he thought was my home, and said he was going to visit me to 'take care of things in person'.

I had all this in email and showed ebay and PayPal the type of customer they have. I said they were facilitating g business with extortionists.

Same advice. They said it was a civil matter (I said criminal) and said I should report to my local police.

Thanks for clearing up and the background info.  These and other reasons are why I have a P.O. box.  If they go through the hassle of looking up my physical address, then it is showing one step further in the malicious intent when the law is involved and hopefully it will weight more in my favor in case something happened.

Pictures of fake vs. genuine 1983-1999
« Reply #12 on: November 08, 2014, 11:50:38 PM »
Here are the pictures of fake silver pandas, from 1983 to 1999, listed by the 4 sellers mentioned previously in this thread vs. genuine. The marked areas in fake 1983 show the difference between fake and genuine. These differences can be applied to all dates.  They are other differences, but these two areas will be enough for new collector to detect the fake silver pandas immediately.
