I have been thinking, since it is possible to get your money back from counterfeit Legos which are craftily worded through paypal/ebay. Could I go through and start scooping these up from American sellers and then slamming then to both get my money back and the fakes. I'm not overly interested in the phonies other than to give to my cousins so they don't play with my collectable figures, but it would definitely start to tinker down the fake sellers as it would NOT be profitable for them. I've also noticed there are a lot of people selling fake Pokémon games but you can tell the community there is lax as they are not in any way crafting and straight up label them as Pokémon products. Just wondering if you guys think this would work.

You'd do a lot more damage to yourself than you could ever hope to inflict.
It's the age-old paradigm - if someone wants it, someone else is out there distributing it illegally.
i attached a couple of screen grabs from YouTube to illustrate what I mean. I ask because I bought a Cargo Truck off eBay from the Cargo Train 60052 and it came in the bag with the white stripe, something I have never seen before.
Thanks...is there anywhere online a comprehensive write-up on fakes and how to identify them?
Context from this end. While I've picked up quite a few sets in the past year since I got back into this, I have just scratched the surface as far as opening/building/learning parts, etc. And the nutty thing is that later tonight I open a newer piece to start tinkering with and sure enough...a white stripe that answered my own question. D'OH!!! :)
