    One of the traders on TradeMe had been selling fakes/imitation? for ages.
    Unfortunately, TM administration allows it, if the items are in a special
    section.

    However, just browsed across a fake thingie, which has " Silver Bullion Bar .999 Fine Silver 1oz Troy Ounce"
    in the description....

    Meh, reporting a trader for the first time (On the grounds of provision of misleading and false information).

    Intriqued to see what would be the response from TM, sometimes they are good.
    Here is seems to be the real bar, not sure if the difference is obvious.

    It is horrifying to think the guy sells fake stuff that could be then sold to other stackers
    via face-to-face or other means.

    Legit concern?

    Well that 1st listing is breaching Bullion List's intellectual property, he as owner should report it!
