Hi,

Looking for some advice. This has happened to me a few times in the past.

I have a Mike Mitchell ET Mondo up for sale on Ebay.
I always take pictures of my print
Always flat
Stored in Mylar
Mint or I mention whatever issue

This user: assassinsps3

Took my photo and used it as his own to sell the same product.

I message him but he didn't message back. I reported it on Ebay but it's still up.

Any advice?

that is allowed on ebay. there is nothing you can do about it. best recourse is add a watermark or a piece of paper with your handle in the pic. ebay doesn't give two shits.

Think about how mondo or sheps photographer feels.....their pictures are all over ebay with no photo creds. :wink:

If i were you, i would drop your price right below his. then buyers can see that he stole your photo.

u need to lower it anyway, if u want a sale. :thumb:

Do u mind if i use a few of your photos? i have a stack of mondo tubes piling up and i dont feel like going thru the whole rigmarole of opening, unrolling, etc.

I haven't used photos of other people's prints but I have on other items I sold on eBay....like a printer cartridge. Does he/she black out the number?

That's a little harsh.
No wonder no other eBay sellers want to come on here and openly discuss with their fans.
Not a fan of a little friendly competition?
It looks to me like you are selling way more of your mondos than he is of his mondos.
Isn't that what really matters more?

The dude who lifted op's pic could've checked completed listings and lifted a pic from there, but didn't. Therefore I surmised that said dude cbf to return op's pm.

Makes sense to me.
