    This guy got me for 275 bucks. Luckily i got my money back on a counterfeit claim, did not have to return this garbage to the seller so he could not sell them again, and threw them in the trash. Should have paid more attention. I did everything I possibly could to get this guy in trouble spent about 4 hours on the phone. Obviously, it did nothing and all he did was make some more. The logos are on backwards and they just peel right off.
    I hope Karma busts his butt...

    They are just glued on. Will peel right off and the logos are backwards.

    This is why I very rarely ever buy on eBay. That's just so wrong!

    Funny they were still in my watch list. I reported that crap as fake right now. Hopefully they take action and your dad gets a refund.

    I got a refund. But, it was the most tedious interaction I've ever done. Spent 4 to 5 hours on the phone. Never again. The guy's such a dirtbag. I can't fathom how many people he's screwed out of their hard earned dollars. What a shame

    CB, the guy is unbelievable. I will post some screenshots of our emails back and forth. You will be amazed at just how much of a space cadet George (that his name) is. He also has another eBay account munson6566. So beware of both. I also filed a complaint with the BBB

    just some of the messages. Its like he has convinced himself they are real.. He also said he only had 1 set left. That was the one i bought. Then miraculously he "found" another set of these elusive discontinued mats.

    The 1st screenshot is him telling me a few weeks back that he has one set left in stock.

    I notice that this guy has sold over 151K car parts, literature, keychains, etc. All that I checked looked legit. Except those mats. I wonder where he gets the parts that he sells. Is it possible he bought those mats (he sold a tan one recently, too, that looks to be the same logo deal) believing they're genuine? Maybe he really believes they're authentic? Just wondering out loud.
