I was hoping that efforts over the past few months by some of the EBAY sellers would make some positive changes.

They have not. EBAY continues to ignore the deceptive practices being perpetrated on buyers.

Therefore, I have reestablished the Auction Jewelry Police in case anyone is interested.

We will be studying the EBAY auctions as applied to the Federal Trade Commission Guides for the Jewelry Industry.

This is a free service for the benefit of consumers.

Do the FTC guidelines also apply to sellers on eBay US from different countries like UK, EU, china, etc.

Thank you David for letting me know that. There has been much going on behind the scenes...not the least of which is I have been once again banned to eBay jail.

But, I have to say that I believe the FTC requirement postings are a direct result of our actions.

I have been buying auction after auction for the past few days (spent most of the lunch money) and threated to take eBay and the sellers to the FTC if the item described was not as delivered based on the representation in the title of the auction. (particularly Section 23.22)

Strangly enough, I have had more sellers than not tell me that they did not realiize the FTC Guides were there, or what they meant, and were willing to learn more about them and adhere to them. Only one or two sellers who are the dogs of war over there have talked badly about me and my mother.

However, I have a bunch of CZ junk either here or coming in, but I have a lot of sellers certifying that they will stop using the term "Diamond cz" now...with the understanding that I will continue to monitor their auctions.

I certainly cannot take more than a thimble full of any credit, but the combined effort of a lot of good people is at least getting a good start.

And Ravi, if you sell to US consumers, you need to abide by the FTC Guides.

Best to everyone (and does anyone want to buy some cheap CZ jewelry? )

OH...and the Auction Jewelry Police is now inside www.YourGemologist.com.

We are doing a study of the FTC Guides in light of some of the EBAY auctions right now. And as always, its free.
