How Can ebay Sellers get away with this

I used to have confidence that eBay weeded out the junk, but no more.  I collect Eskimo art, specifically Fred Machetanz.  There are two more pieces I want, each going for around $2,000.  Around Christmastime I found one over there for a killer price, but it didn't look quite right.

 

I did a lot of zooming and comparing with known good examples, and discovered it's a reproduction on canvas.  I alerted eBay and gave them my proof, and they did nothing.  It stayed up until someone paid four figures for it.  Now eBay is flooded with fake prints and I'll never buy another one.

 

Caveat emptor.
