This report is to inform current/future, plumeria buyers, sellers, and horticulturists to beware many postings for blue varieties of plumeria listed on eBay. I started an investigation last year after discovering that purchased plants in this family of colors never survived. I contacted roughly a dozen eBay users who had also purchased these color varieties to discover they had the same issues with survivability.
I then contacted a number of experts in the field of plumeria horticulture and propagation to discover that these colors do not actually exist. It was then determined that the photos being used to sell these plants are fraudulent. By most accounts, these photos have been manipulated using Photoshop or some other image editing software.

I reported this to eBay on three (3) seperate occasions over the last year, using their website and telephone support. They claimed they are looking into this but still have not taken action against many of the sellers. As a result, there are still many of these fraudulent postings on their website and even more eBay users getting ripped off.
