Complaint / review text:
Most auction companies due their duties and check on authenticity and will not sell what they know to be fake autographs - Mr. Brian Hollifield of Freedom Auction Company however is not one of these owners.in a sports memorabilia auction the company "forgot" to list the names of those who authenticated the autographs being sold. Upon receiving them they were clear fakes where you could see where the marker had stopped and started again and again throughout the autographs, something you could not see online when bidding. None of the authenticators are even accepted by eBay, but Mr. Hollified is willing to sell the fake autographs as legitimate and rip off those bidding from far away. After contacting the rip off artist he refused to do anything about the fakes he was selling, in fact after telling him that one of the authenticators he was selling - Christopher Morales - was arrested by the FBI the next auctions listed at Freedom Auction House was still selling these blatant fakes as real. How does anyone with any morales sell autographs as legitimate when not a week earlier was told that the man who says they are legit is a fraud and there's FBI records to prove it? I would not trust Mr. Hollifield or this auction company, autographs, historical items, who knows what this shyster is pawning off on unsuspecting victims. Contacted the FCC, FTC, FBI, Bradenton and local police departments, USPS, FRIC, and BBB!
