    I think they might've bought a repackaged figure accidentally to sell it online. Some of the other figures that they're selling look official.

    Or bait, get people to share this link so that more people go to his eBay page, then look to see if he is trying to get away with other cons. Then maybe see a figure you want and buy it.

    Sadly it will probably misfire... When we report his listing as fraudulent.

    No photos, but came up with a headless swordless Cogman a far cry away from the new placing in my target store. Went back and it went away.

    I've seen similar stories before where they would print up their own bar codes and put them over the real ones. A couple of years ago a local lady was convicted for doing that with Lego sets from various stores in the area. She had made something crazy like $500,000 reselling the sets online before she was caught.

    I remember that story, but I thought they were returning the boxes filled with rocks instead of LEGO.

    Multiple stories. The one I remember was some tech guy who lived in the suburbs and made like $150k a year, houses in his town averaged $250k or so (meaning he had plenty of money) and he was still barcode swapping Lego sets to save cash, selling parts on bricklink.

    There's plenty of shady people out there

    I returned a transformer recently. Told them it was missing pieces, and sure enough it's back on the peg, not marked down or anything. They couldn't give a single fuck. It's no surprise that scammers get away with this so easily.
