Pics of a pair of rubber vc hand restraints brought back by member of b Co.,1st Bn., 28th Inf., 1st Inf. Div. they are stamped faintly on side several times VIT Cinch He. Not sure what that means.

Thanks fornthe translation. I had tried to look up he but had no luck so very helpful. I agree and think the VIT may have been company that made it as those letters were all capitalized

Do you have a picture of the markings? Not gonna lie, but it looks like a VIT products cinch tie which is used to make trees grow straight. The company's only been around since 1985.

Did you by chance acquire these from a guy named Jay Camp/tudia68/11bravo30?

The hand restraints are bogus and acquired from a known faker. OP has been a good sport about it and plans on returning them.

We've all been in your situation more than once. There's a couple of dealers that I won't buy anything from, no matter how good it seems, as I just don't want to perpetuate their ilk. Sadly they seem to keep surviving and thriving.

This seller is 11bravo30 on ebay. Got several vc items listed-most with capture info. Wish there was a suspect list that these guys could be added to so others dont get ripped off as well

Just an updatereported this guy up the line and believe ebay shut him down. Itll be my mission to try and thwart any future activities of his, at least on ebay. I dont know where else he sells his junk but i can at least try and stop that outlet.

The Forum has a section in the first header on main page called "Members and Forum Information" …. a subsection "Buyers and Sellers Report" is a place where members have listed problematic sellers etc.I would think this seller active or not could be listed there or any of his user names that he may re-register under.
