In the video on CTV news it shows a bill with the CDX prefix. So that's interesting. https://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canada/a-giant-step-forward-new-10-bill-featuring-viola-desmond-to-enter-circulation-1.4182073

While it is true that TPG's are unregulated, I feel it is pretty misleading to have a website on your label that doesn't exist. 

Are you talking about the website printed on the holder of the note in the OP of this thread? It works for me.
http://pmcgsgrading.com

As for poor grading standards and/or spelling mistakes, yes that is an indicator of a rather unprofessional service. But that doesn't make it ban-worthy or a scam. TPG services are like advice columnists in the newspaper. They are paid to give their opinion, nothing more. There is no guarantee of results based on the advice given. Advice columnists (and TPG services) who routinely dole out bad advice in an unprofessional way simply put themselves out of business. No bans are necessary.

TPG services are completely unregulated and there's no trade qualification nor anything else stopping anyone from starting one up, which the person behind PMCGS has done. All TPG services have to start somewhere, after all. I wish PMCGS well.

While it is true that TPG's are unregulated, I feel it is pretty misleading to have a website on your label that doesn't exist.  In my mind, all TPG's should be somewhat accountable, and should be able to be contacted or maintain a website which explains their grading standards. 

I saw several of these notes listed on an Ontario based auction house and observed the following:
a) very dubious grading (typically a grade far too high for a circulated note)  Now that I think of it- I believe he started with the "150" $10 and was labelling them all UNC70.
b) typos & spelling errors on "Comments"
c) labelling errors (notes that were given incorrect Charlton codes)

One of the above (like a typo) can be expected occasionally but I've also seen both (poor grading and misspelt "Commnets") which I cannot overlook.  I also closely inspected every single "150" $10 that I got from bricks and never once saw an UNC70 for production & handling problems were rampant with this series. 

IMO:
Very disappointed to hear they made it to eBay but good to hear they've been removed.

The eBay account no longer exists.

Rightly so, possibly because they were selling old banknotes for insane prices, and the bills are most likely phony.

Based on the fact that we know one of the prefixes is CDY (not CDX, as someone perceived, unless CDX is designated for test notes), i bet the first prefix will likely be CDG, and the FF* series will follow suit.

After seeing a report of FFB in recent days, it might imply that printer letters A, B, C and the yet-to-be used D continue being defunct, and we may see FFA are the debut prefix.

We'll find out in the coming days.

I'm guessing you live in B.C. or Atlantic Canada?  Or a town or small city?
