Stolen picture

Postby Pomse2001 » Wed Aug 23, 2017 1:53 pm

Hi guys I have just learned a seller on ebay have stolen a picture from me and use it to sell star wars on ebay.

I have tried to report it to ebay, but as always ebay is hard to use when there is a problem. Ebay will not let me report it because the picture is not stolen from another add on ebay :roll:

Here is the link to the add with my stolen picture

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAR-WARS-VIN ... 1438.l2649

It is the interceptor taken with my camera in my kitchen and I still have the interceptor :evil:

You need to talk to them through one of the live chat links or phone them, they usually act on it then.

That's nasty are all 3 pictures yours that is being used? You could also contact the seller to get them removed. The only problem is they will then take someone else's pictures to use. I wonder if the other items they are selling is someone else's pictures also :?

This problem was rampant when I used to sell stuff on ebay, people are so fucking lazy and can't be arsed to take a couple of pics so they just steal them off other listings. I was having to get at least one removed every week or two.

Even worse in this case with a vintage item because buyers need to see the actual toy they're bidding on.

No only the picture from the kitchen table is mine. But I also looked at the other auctions that he have and I think all the pictures he have is taken from the internet and none of them is his :evil:

Glad to hear the copycat took it off. 8)

Keep an eye on him there's a chance he might do it again, some sellers repeatedly do it.
