Thumbs down selling counterfeits on ebay - DON'T DO IT!

Ok guys I am ganna share my experience with you regarding this matter.
I have been selling on ebay since 1998 over 10 years now
been selling good legitimate products, and doing great.
about 3 years ago I received an email from a Chinese trading company advertising their counterfeit products, and it caught my attention. the profit margin was great and I thought I will be making a **** load of money.
so I started selling shoes bags jerseys you name it all brand names.
i got the bags removed right away, shoes in couple weeks but the jerseys stayed for about a year.
but only since ebay did not realize the NFL Jerseys were ⊗⊗⊗⊗, they allowed every one to sell it including chinese sellers.
now you have 1000s of sellers selling the same product dropping the price and there is no way you can compete with the chinese sellers on the prices, so you started seeing $250 product being sold at $20 sometimes $10.
Let me tell you guys during my 10 years selling on ebay the worst 2 years when I was selling these ⊗⊗⊗⊗ items, I made way less money than I used to make.

so what did I gain by selling counterfeits :
1-less money than i ever made
2- loss of 2 (over 2000+feedbacks) ebay accounts

Take it from me and learn from my experience

DO NOT DO IT
