Rare Records Australia scammer fakes do not buy!

Sat, 09/02/2019 - 12:05

Doug Bear from "Rare Records" Australia is a known scammer, he's making a LOT of money selling known fakes imported from Thailand, incase he removes the page you can see he's selling his garbage on TShirtSlayer (Archive.org snapshot https://web.archive.org/web/20190209105127/https://tshirtslayer.com/tshi... ) ..

Original link here https://tshirtslayer.com/tshirt-or-longsleeve/beast-road-19821983-world-...

When you log in you can see that he admits he knows it's a fake. His business name "Rare Records" is not a registered business name in Australia, and as of February 2019 he's still selling his fakes on his website https://www.rarerecords.com.au/store/clothing/shirts/somewhere-tour-whit... ,

His website is configured to block anything from taking a 'snapshot' so that we can use it to prosecute him. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY HE IS A SCAMMER

I've included some snapshots of his admissions that they're fakes below

Doug Bear known scammer and fake tshirt seller

You can see there is no business name in Victoria Australia called "Rare Records" (his business "Rare Records" is located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) by doing an ABN search https://abr.business.gov.au/Search/ResultsActive?SearchText=rare%20records

On the 4th he was notified they were fakes and KNEW they were fakes, as of the 9th he's still selling them on his website and logs into tshirtslayer, he is still alive and active


When he registered rarerecords.com.au , he did not give any identity papers....

I will be contacting the ombudsman and police in victoria
