Got this back from ebay regarding the NGF fake KOF 2000 auction, but first what I sent them:

I am reporting this item: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=467158784

NGF is selling an inferior product which is labeled as an "NGF original"
geo system cartridge game. The actual King of Fighters 2000 game to be
released by the actual publisher, SNK, will hit the market on December
21 of
this year. This NGF product is an infringement of the rights and
of SNK. Please shut this scam auction down so that people like myself
want actual neo geo products will still be able to get them from ebay
having to worry about getting an inferior product being labeled as
"official". Thanks

================================================== ===========

I previously wrote to this email to you regarding an inferior product
offering on ebay. The seller has placed another such auction (Item
#473055706), selling the same fake merchandise. Just wanted to let you

I got this back today:


We have reviewed the auctions you have brought to our attention and
taken appropriate action. We would also like to explain eBay's policy
with respect to reports like yours. eBay is not in a position to make
judgments about the authenticity or authorized nature of auction items,
except in the most extreme circumstances. This may mean that we cannot
remove the item about which you contacted us. In some cases, we refer
the information to the owner of the rights (copyright, trademark, etc.)
involved, if we know who they are and how to contact them.

Although you may be extremely knowledgeable about these types of items,
we often cannot remove items upon the representations of third parties
whose credentials we cannot verify, unless of course the alleged
infringement is obvious on its face. That is why we strongly urge you
to notify the rights holder of the suspected infringement and encourage
them to join our Verified Rights Owners (VeRO) Program (formerly called
Legal Buddy Program). This program enables them to request the ending
of allegedly infringing auctions.

We appreciate your vigilance in helping us to keep inappropriate
auctions off eBay. If you have a question or problem, please contact us
and we will gladly assist you. If you would like to report a
questionable item please visit:

Thanks for using eBay!

Now, has ebay just gone soft or what? First they take the scam auction off, now this? I just wondered if anyone else had gotten feedback on this yet, or keow anything of what has developed regarding this NGF-sponsored disease.

I got the same type of reply when I told ebay about some neo geo cdrs. Just silly.

Which item are you talking about? That link you posted isnt in the Ebay database no more cuz i think they might have taken it down already.

Are you talking about this one?: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=473055706

Hey notice that when it NGF posted that auction up again it got a insane fast 31 bids and its been that way for like more than a day or so.
I guess since i posted up this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=473417024
and many reports been sent to ebay - the neo bidders are starting to realize what this NGF crap really is.

Man i have recieved dozens of emails all over the world (france,UK,australlia,germany,US States ect ect) saying they glad to see the NGF auction being exposed and how some of them have had the horrible experience with NGF.

When I wrote to ebay, I included references to the earlier NGF scam auction I had wrote to them about. Your auctions really do make a difference, and are a great public service, not to mention funny as hell. I am glad to see this get worldwide underground attention, and the emails you have received even more confirm what a bunch of rip off artists NGF are.
