Administrators tell those who contacted seller not to respond again
A notice from eBay administrators is now warning people who have contacted the seller of an allegedly genuine copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate from Mombasa, Kenya not to contact the seller again.
Furthermore, the sale page offering a dissertation on "the truth" about Obama's birth with bids reported by WND readers to have exceeded $1 million has been pulled from the auction website for the fifth time.
As WND reported, the eBay seller, known to the public only as "colmado_naranja," alleged he obtained President Obama's birth certificate while traveling Africa. He explained that Kenyans boasted that Barack Obama II was born in the Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombasa at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961, which correlates with speculation that has existed over the president's birthplace since even prior to his election.
In each of the seller's first four attempts at auctioning the "evidence" of his claim, which would presumably render Obama ineligible to serve as president for violating the "natural born citizen" clause, colmado_naranja offered an alleged Kenyan birth certificate that "proved" his story.
The eBay website, however, has a policy forbidding the sale of certain government documents, which presumably led to the auction page being removed.
In the fifth and thus far most successful attempt at auctioning "the truth about Obama," the seller didn't mention the birth certificate, offering instead a "dissertation" on Obama's birthplace, and yet the auction page has disappeared again.

Seems like it would be cheaper to fly to Kenya and get your own copy.
I’ll offer anyone 100,000 for his authentic college records.
What do you want to bet its Sammy Korir?
How can they WARN you not to CONTACT the seller .They have some sort of SUPER powers over there at EBAY central . I’d tell em to stuff it !
Obama brownshirts at work here?
well see, Ebay is in a quandary....by banning the sale of ‘government documents”, they are in fact attesting that this certificate is an official government document, and in fact the real thing. If in fact it is a novelty item, then of course it wouldn’t be banned.
So, which is it Ebay.....a government document, or not? If it is a government document, then you have confirmed what we know...that the Usurper is a fraud.
It would be even cheaper to open Photoshop and create your own.
I almost forgot about him. ;)
100,000... what... toothpicks? ;-)
If they are just not interested, why not try Craig's List, or something like that. Quit beating your head against that EBay wall.
Assuming if it did exist it’s still there. I wouldn’t bet on that last part.
Yes, that line raised my eyebrow, too.
I thought such documents were auctioned at Sotheby’s in London.
Of being seen as a knowing party to fraud. This ranks right up there with the "you have won a (fill in the blank) lottery" and we just need some fees to help you claim your money.
They sell other birth certificates on Ebay. This is ridiculous! If people want to buy it, ebay will make money on it, so there has to be some other reason. Hope she keeps trying.
