new fake cards spotted

From what I have been told, a new wave of fake cards has appeared on the market, this time from Hungary. Worthy of note is that this is the first attempt to produce foil cards on a broad scale. While the cards are easily recognizable, nonetheless the integrity of the once secure foil card area has been breached. It will just be a matter of time before high quality fake foil cards will hit the market. Collectors have to be prepared...

A new proliferation of fakes is definitely quite disappointing, but seeing these scans, I have to wonder.  If they cannot even make fakes of the right size of the cards, just how poorly are these cards to see in real life.
 
I think this is most unfortunate for the European sellers and maybe even the odd members on here.  How many of us right now already will no longer do any business with anybody from Singapore or Italy (mainly because of the Minagishi fakes).  For me even, I will not buy anything from anyone in the Orient anymore because the Minagishi fakes are all over there - other than a couple members on here from Japan.
 
Creating massive quanities of fakes like this is just going to tarnish European sellers everywhere, IMO.

While I agree that the printing itself is poor (especially the backside), the foil layer is not bad. Should different fakers combine their efforts, for example the creators of the Mirrodin and 8th Edition fake cards with these foil card fakers, the overall quality would quickly rise to a disturbing degree.
