So I ordered a card off of eBay, but now that I've paid the seller is trying to get me to buy more of his stuff outside of eBay and it's setting off my alarm bells. I don't have experience detecting fake cards at all, so I've attached the pictures of the card on eBay. Is there anything about these pictures which screams 'obviously fake'?
I am aware that this isn't a lot of information to go off of, so if you need me to send additional pictures once the card arrives in the mail I can do that. However,that will be in about a week.
I generally stay away from ebayers that upload poor pictures. In my mind, there's no reason to upload bad pictures, and every reason to upload a quality picture if you're legitimate. If the year were 2002, then sure, it's forgivable. But in 2018, every smartphone can take crystal clear pics.
I see no obvious flaws that would lead me to call your card a fake. But I can only say that with a low degree of confidence given the picture quality.
