Doubtful Lucie Rie's on Ebay? Empty Doubtful Lucie Rie's on Ebay?

There is an interesting Questionable Lucie Rie on Ebay at the moment (7 June). A seller with a very few sales selling an unsigned Lucie Rie on Ebay. It has a already got bids of £800. If real it probably be worth several thousands. Then we have another Lucie Rie out on this morning., But this is by a person telling people not to bid on this 'fake' Lucie Rie! Intriguing. But it does remind one that Ebay can still be a dodgy place to buy!

I saw that. Lol. Buyer beware. Looks like an incised or stamped mark on the base but the seller hasn’t included a close up photo of it. Maybe a Ray Marshall bowl

I can't even see a mark? Could it be one of this guys pieces? There are meant to be a lot out there

EDIT:

How can this happen? According to Sergeant Rapley, speaking to the BBC in 2005: "There is a culture out there - in certain parts of the art market - that if they think something is fake they will say I'm not happy with that' and not buy it, but they won't do anything about it. Then the item will be offered elsewhere. We're trying to raise awareness with museums and other institutions, as there's often no communication between them."
