genuine verses fake web sites

I recently found two good web sites about authentic verses fake antiquities. Here they are:

collectors-antiquities.com There's a section on real or fake that shows photos and comments. I enjoyed the photos of modern fake roman phallic amulets sold on ebay.

thefakebusters.com On this site there's photos of a shop in Egypt that makes ushabtis and other items that end up on ebay as genuine.

Some of the fakes look really well done, so I'd suggest avoiding ebay sellers that you are not familiar with.
