As people all over the world continue to mourn the passing of Chadwick Boseman, scammers are trying to capitalize on his death. 

Counterfeit Chadwick signatures are popping up all over the internet as emotional fans try to get a piece of memorabilia.

The volume of stuff we've seen has obviously increased and the stuff that I'm seeing in online auctions, specifically eBay has really kind of blown me away the last few days in terms of just straight up fakes. 

You know his signatures is limited in volume since he didn't sign many in his short career.

Since Chadwick's death, there's hundreds of fakes on eBay more than just a week ago. Right now, authentic signatures on eBay are rare exceptions.

And it seems like people are getting caught up too much in this euphoria and there's only one other time in my life that I saw something like this happen and it was a few months ago when Kobe Bryant passed away. And people just kind of lose their inhibition for spending money, they all just buy anything. 

We reached out to eBay for comment on this story, but they did not respond. 

Pictures below are examples of forgeries that was sold recently.

eBay seller sasigned_llc sold a signed and framed photo of Chadwick Boseman is 100% FAKE

AUTHOR: Operation Bullpen - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, September 08, 2020

 I been suspicion about this eBay seller sasigned_llc for a while now. But when I took one look at the two signed photo of Chadwick Boseman recently sold by the seller, I knew it was FAKE. Just everything about the autographs is bad. He just don’t sign like that. Too bad he doesn’t have any photograph proof for these ones to back up his claim. You can have all the nice stickers, COAs, and packaging all you want but it doesn't make the autographs real if it's fake. Check out the Lebron James team signed Lakers basketball this guy has for sale which he forged Lebron on.

Doubt he even sign it because he rarely sign at all nowadays. Everybody know this fact except this dishonest seller. I wonder if this guy actually go get autographs or he just buy photographs from paparazzi and use those photos to petty his forgeries? The seller is registered under the name Kevin Johnson from Chatham, New Jersey.

outlaw_hobbies eBay and RACC Trusted seller #118 sold a fake Chadwick Boseman autograph incorrectly authenticated by JSA

AUTHOR: Operation Bullpen - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, September 06, 2020

eBay and RACC Trusted seller #118 outlaw_hobbies sold a fake Chadwick Boseman autograph incorrectly authenticated by JSA. I found out the seller name is Ken R. on the RACC website. I thought you have to be a honest person to become a seller on there. I guess not! Look at the awful signature of Chadwick. Look to me someone try hard to copy his signature but need to practice a little more to get it right. The formation and slant is terrible.

The seller provides a photo of Chadwick signing for him but it's a photo of him something else. That photo was taken in Los Angeles, CA not in Canada. Third party authentication company JSA who has a history authenticating forgeries as the real thing clearly got this wrong too. The best JSA could of done was not render an opinion because BAS or PSA would of fail it.

It doesn't help that James Spence has a close relationship with the king of memorabilia fraud Bill Mastro. I feel bad for the buyer who bought this expensive forgery.

eBay seller aaroasquit_0 sold to a buyer a Chadwick Boseman signed Funko with a FAKE COA for $7,000 is a forgery

AUTHOR: Operation Bullpen - (United States)

POSTED: Friday, September 04, 2020

 This eBay seller aaroasquit_0 from Hanover Park, Illinois sold a Chadwick Boseman signed Black Panther Funko toy with a generic homemade COA to an unsuspected buyer for $7,000 is a forgery. The COA is from a company SignatureCollections that doesn’t exit. No address. No phone number. No name. I search all the previous items this forger had sold in the past and it doesn’t look good. How in the world this scammer get A-List names to sign his Funko toys again and again every week? It’s just impossible. Especially someone who lives in Illinois.

For the price the seller sold the item for, at least get a DNA test. Let’s see if any DNA from Chadwick is present if he actually hold the Funko toybox in his hand and signed for this liar. I suggest anyone who going to spend large sum of money on an autograph to do their research first before buying. Remember Operation Bullpen FBI investigation about the biggest bust on the autograph fraud in US history.

 This jerk on eBay under the username firsthandautographs4you sold a Chadwick Boseman signed Funko toybox that is not real. His signature is way off. He has countless other Marvels actors signed Funkos that are clearly all fakes as hell.

eBay seller its-authentic sold Chadwick Boseman forgeries

AUTHOR: Operation Bullpen - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, September 02, 2020

 This ebayer is no more than an opportunist who see an easy way to make fast cash over a dead celebrity. He doesn’t care about Chadwick Boseman. He only care about making money. He doesn't care about the customers. He claims he got several autographs from Chadwick at the Black Panther premiere. The photo he uses as proof was stolen off the internet. He never took that photo. The autographs of Chadwick he sold aren’t real. The formations and styles are all wrong. He will continue to sell his forgeries and milk as much money as he can until he get caught.
