I found these Chinese-printed counterfeit bills on eBay. Though they have an unmistakable overprint (I think), buy they could still be very deceptive. Report?

He also sells counterfeit bills from other countries.

I wonder what the Chinese characters on the front and back say?

I reported. Everyone should. This junk actually does get pulled if enough people report.

My Mandarin reading is rusty but I ran the words through a translator and the red characters read "lin g#333;ng qun", it means "practise (in terms of a skill) certificate/ticket". The ones under it read "pio yng" which means "ticket/bill sample/type".

Never trust anything from China...it's bogus. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!

Calzone, the question wasn't wether it was bogus, that was obvious, and no one mentioned even the thought of buying. The question was and still is, are these legal to be sold and/or owned in the US. My belief is no, as they are the same size as real notes and it is illegal to even print a picture of any US money if the picture isn't significantly smaller or larger than real life. (I seem to remember at least two thirds larger or smaller. Does that sound right to anyone?)
Currently working on:
Australia type set
Canada type set
Three from each country (up to 416!)
UK 20th and 21st century
IHC's! NGC certified MS-62 or better, Capital Plastics Fine or better, Dansco Fine or better, Dansco any x3, and Coin Board for wall display, any grade. (I may be a tad obsessed)

I reported the seller and bought a pack of ones to see if they're all marked.
Rest in Peace

Reproductions must be either less than 3/4 of normal size or more than 1-1/2 normal size. I didn't see size mentioned anywhere in the ebay description. It will be interesting to see what size they really are when they come in.

I have asked my local police station about the traing notes.
Two officers asked me why I would want to own them, but could note tell my if they are legal in canada.
I thought it would be great to use for poker night.
Never bought any, did not feel it would be worth the risk.

After looking at multiple listings from different sellers, all the bills of the same denomination have the same serial number.

With coins, when copies were allowed, the Chinese would picture a coin with "Copy" on it, but would send unmarked coins. I'm curious if I'm going to get a stack of plain old counterfeit dollar bills.

When I was working in Beijing there was a large building with several hundred stalls. It was all bills and coins. I can remember seeing a bucket of Buffalo nickles in one of the stalls. All fake. You had to be very careful of what you was buying.

That listing was nuked, but the alternate items shown in its place show some from other sellers who are selling these.

I just "screen-saved" four. Photos that I need to crop before sending to the BEP to ask if this is legal to own...
I could find personal uses for these, like playing card games with my grandchildren, or with adults and substitute these with real money in States where it is illegal to Gamble...
Currently the price is to high for fake money.

I'm slightly surprised that this seller is still promoting fake Bank of England fifty pound notes with the Houblon design, as these are no longer legal tender. The Bank of England will still change them, but they would examine them very carefully if you tried to change any. On the other hand, five pound notes get scruffy very quickly and I can well imagine one of those fakes being accepted in a badly lit pub or club...
