Bogus AEF stamps on ebay

Some 'unusual' items have appeared on ebay. The seller is very careful with his wording in description. I have never seen them before despite having collected Civil War material for 30 years and believe they are completely bogus.
1.The overprints appear to be on top of the cancellations - very apparent in the 'on piece' item he is selling.
2.Whoever made the overprints cannot spell expeditionary - it is rendered expeditinary
3.The overprint uses the Anglisised Russian 'Archangelsk' rather than what one would expec from the AEF 'Archangel'
ebay item: 400482496718 and some others
