Beware Monkey's scam


Recommended Posts

I've messaged him a few times over the last few years and he always plays dumb or the victim.

Today I messaged him about the ka bar and told him there's a lot of discussion in the antique weapon community about his dodgy sales and he said he knows people aren't happy with him and he's ok with it.

Low life .

 

I only care from the perspective that he is ruining genuine pieces of history. Otherwise, he's marked himself out as someone never to buy from whether or not it appears he is selling genuine items. 

 

There are several auction houses in the medal collecting world who have besmirched their names. They are relegated to selling renamed and defective medals or medals of low value. That's a poor business decision by them at the end of the day.

 

Kind Regards,

Did you mention there is enough clear evidence of his actions to prove a deliberate fraud case? Because that is what it is coming to. If we can just find one of the guys who purchased a fake flag or sword that was altered, and we have enough evidence of the before and after photos, I'd gladly encourage fraud charges.

The awful part is that EVEN IF by some miracle they ban his account... he'll just make another and continue to sell under a new name. The only thing that could be done is get him in court for enough damages that he stays away. And that is probably a fever dream.

True, he also operates under the ebay name "worldsbestcollector" which he uses to sell his fake flag creations....horrible guy! total idiot!

It usually goes like this with The Monkey:

 

Typical question in the comments section of his YouTube videos: "I have an old Japanese sword that a friend gave me years ago, can you tell me what I have?"

 

Monkey: "Message me, and make sure to Check out my Store. Thank you so much for watching."

 

But, above all, check out his STORE! Lol

I sent him a 300$ offer for his million dollar, mislabeled pruning knife and a link to http://www.japaneseswordindex.com/unji.htm explaining what it is. Mostly for some fun and to see what he would say if given a proper ID and price.

 

Unsurprisingly he rejected without an explanation. Not that I’m sad about it since I don’t want his compromised items no matter how cheap. I do wonder if it’s possible to contact eBay and report his fraudulent descriptions. This is his absurd listing in case if anyone hasn’t seen it.

I have just come across this:

 

"WW2 Japanese knife DAGGER DIRK collectible antique leather case navy"

 

Looks like a KA-Bar to me, but I am no expert.

That's not even a real Ka-Bar. To be fair, it may have been made in Japan in the 1970s when their productivity was less regarded.
