Ebay - HUGE Magnetix Geomag type building magnetic lot 894 pcs

This one isn't as bad as other listings that basically claim to be Geomag when they are not.

At least this one mentions Magnetix and uses Geomag type as a description. The ones that annoy me are the ones where they say it's a large lot of Geomag and instead there's not a single Geomag piece in the picture as it's all the cheapest variety of knockoffs made.

Yep, I agree, Wim.

There was one listing that recently ended at something like $60 for a lot of 600 pieces of "Geomag and other magnetic building pieces"...I couldn't see any Geomag so I sent a question to the seller asking how many Geomag pieces were in there as I couldn't see them...here is the verbatim response:

"its mixed in there... but most of the parts are not original Geomag. I am estimating about 600 pieces." :roll:

Someone got bait and switched, that's for sure...plus the good Geomag name has been tarnished for whoever bought these when he/she discovers how cheap they are.

I wonder if the Geomag company has any ground/desire to pursue/attack listings like these? Peter?

Another fraudulent Ebay listing:

GeoMag Assortment

EDIT: After sending a message to the seller, s/he was apologetic and has since changed the listing. I did my good deed for the day.
