Starting in late 2003 an eBay seller from Malaysia going by the id bidmystamp started selling "reproductions", as he calls them, of various types of BSA insignia. CSP's, RWS, KRS, and OA items were all produced. Both common and older items are being produced. The seller has admitted these are fakes and has told collectors that they are made by his uncle, who is in the embroidery business. eBay has refused to take action against this seller.
At present about 2 dozen different fakes are known to have been made. More are certain to appear.
