This warning was recently posted on the login patch page: WARNING: Suspicious Items We've received multiple reports that new, supposedly "rare" items are appearing across the servers. These are not sanctioned items from the recent content patches or events, and in some cases even take on the appearance of server-birth rares. If you find these suspicious items for sale, or see them being offered, please use the in-game reporting tool to page a GM. Please enjoy your post holiday vendor shopping, but beware of deals that are too good to be true. More information on this subject can be found in Uhall here: "New "Uber Rare" Bottles, Flasks, and other "new" items."
