Chris, what's it like being a cop?

Wrong forum to ask that in, but I'll give you the quick answer. It's not all "cool shoot outs" and "winning the day" like you see on TV. And if you want to be a cop when you grow up... get ready for a LOT of paperwork.

Another tell-tale sign is when a poster uploads a creation titled 'Really cool car!!' or something like that, when actually it's a perfect replica of a specific type of car down to the last detail.

If someone can make something that accurate they'll probably know what it is they're making a model of!


It does amaze me how reviewers can miss the signs. My favourite on this site was someone who had posted a picture of the Houses of Parliament at Miniland in Legoland Windsor, and claimed it was their own.

You could even see the rest of Legoland in the background and people still posted reviews saying how awesome it was. Muppets.

Useful info here, but again ...not the point of THIS group. I really suggest you READ the group rules here.

I'll paraphrase, in case it's not clear. This group is about busting and bringing unwanted attention to those who would pass another's creation as their own. PERIOD. ...We'll leave the 'unwholesome' stuff for the CFOLs to clean up.

I appreciate what you are trying to do and I'm sorry to harp on you, but it is important to keep the group on task.

amen to that

Architect... I get what you're trying to say. But I think Dave's point was about the "other" stuff you said, not strictly directed at stolen mocs.

The good part that I got of your post was that you were giving tips on how to spot mocs that have been stolen. Those certain tell tale signs that just leap off the page and go "hey, look at me! I'm a stolen moc!"

The other stuff is a good way to spot someone who "may" be guilty of things like this, so it's a good idea to keep an eye on these kinds of people. But in the mean time, let's just stick to actual "stolen" mocs.
