    Funny that on page 9 and we still dont know anymore than on page 1
    So do we know where this supposed fake Nomad came from?
    Does anyone have anything in writing/email from cantillon or the chocolatier stating this is definately fake?
    OP where/who did you get this from and where/who did he get this from?

    The potentially fake bottles came from a private seller in Belgium
    The OP received it in a trade, the trader purchased it from that private seller

    So basically, until more investigation is done, buyer beware. Sorry if I am being a bit vague, but it is not my place to be exposing potential fraudsters until it is shown that they have indeed committed fraud. It might take some time to get the full details.

    Hard to say how much he's making from selling. It can be a lot easier than trading too. Sell a bunch of bottles that would never land a BA DL on here then buy a BA DL. Ebay is more than just a bunch of capitalists.

    I recognize that name from back in my daily ebay browsing days. Always had a ton of rare shit for sale, I might have even bought some from him I don't remember. Dude was DEEP in the ebay game even back when he was on his high and mighty trader shit.

    I want to clarify that I have nothing against ebayers, but I do have something against people who portray themselves one way and act a completely different way behind the scenes.

    The guys he screwed over should pool their money and buy his foreclosed house. Then they can call it even. :p

    Just gonna throw this out there, but this thread is probably one of the most legit I've seen on BA as far as being helpful to people. If you guys take it too far off course it might not even exist anymore.
