Here is good example of a fraudulent advertising.
I needed some tourmaline beads for a necklace I was designing. I thought I would try eBay.
Here is the link of what i purchased:

I bought it cheaply and after testing discovered that it is dyed quartz.
It is still for sale on eBay. It appears they don't really care as long as they collect their commission on the sale.

I thought i should share.
If we all start exposing the fraudsters it may stop.
