This page is dedicated to educate people about the cast counterfeits auctioned on eBay as genuine antique coins by a person or persons
known as the "Online Liquidators" or the "Toronto Group"
Their sales fit the following profile:

1 They will nearly always sell 50+ Greek and Roman silver coins at once, with an auction time of around three days!
Sometimes they will also offer smaller quantities (between 10 and 35) per auction, and mix them with genuine inexpensive bronze or silver coins!
2. They nearly always use brandnew eBay ID's, with a low seller feedback (mostly between 5 and 15, sometimes just over 30),
consisting of cheap items sold within a few days of each other.Their positive comments have usually been posted within
days of the end of the sales, by people who paid through paypal. At the same time the auctions of these mass fakes will
not accept paypal themselves (because eBay owns Paypal)!
3. They always use private auction to shield the bidder ID's (and prevent anyone from warning their bidders) and lately even private feedback!
4. Their images will either be linked from http://members.sparedollar.com, http://members.rogers.com or they will use IPIX images, and they
will be operating from Canada, while sometimes pretending to be from various locations (states) in the USA.
5. Their silver coins will include relative rarities for starting prices which are to good to be true
(mostly between $1- and $199-), with less bidders than these coins would have if they were genuine,
because most experienced collectors know these are cast fakes!
If you don't believe me just ask around in any of the following mailing lists on ancient coins:
Moneta-L
and CDFL .
6. Upon close inspection some of their coin images even look like cast coins and these will not withstand a detailed comparison  with
genuine coins found at http://www.wildwinds.com Other images of their coins may actually be photographs of genuine ancient coins,
but their victims will always receive cast copies of those originals!
7. Shortly after their auctions on eBay have ended they will remove the images and discontinue their ebay ID!
The exception to this are their aliases "cnsprty", "hvarotc" and "bricklayeranc" which they have been using for more than one series of auctions
before they were discontinued!
