    So I was in the rep game a while ago, have since gotten out and am now legitimate on eBay selling quality items. I sold a few Nik shoes on a complete stealth account linked with a stealth PayPal and the last pair would have been about a month and a half or 2 months ago now. Only sold about 4 pairs all up.

    Get this email from Nik telling me people complained about goods I was selling and they inspected them and confirmed fake.. and now want $750 by close of business tomorrow or they will go to court.

    Do I have anything to worry about? Complete stealth accounts... should I disregard, and stop using that ebay and pp account...??

    I would not see them sending an email about this. If it was going to be something from Nike I would think they would send something by certified mail. I could be wrong as I am not a lawyer.

    I would also think if the customer on ebay had an issue with an item they would respond back on ebay and do a charge back or something on paypal. I know if I bought something that turned out to be fake I would do a charge back on the payment method and try and contact the seller.

    If that did not work I would then take it to the so called manufacturer They would then do research and contact ebay which would then shut your account down and so on.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree with SpiderMonkeyATX. Unless you received an actual letter I wouldn't be too worried.

    They said in the email they sent a letter to my fake address too.... it's pretty legit, but no customers complained. Perhaps someone from Nike bought a pair??

    Sounds like a scam. I have had this happen and they send an email saying that I had to stop selling them or I would be taken to court. Where did they say to send the money?

    i doubt they would send an email. But then again I got an email from the government stating that I had money waiting for me from 2checkout. They had closed my account about a year or two ago and I still had some money in it and forgot about it. I thought it was a scam until I contacted 2co and they confirmed that was real. So I sent my paper work into the government and got my check. So it's not unheard of.

    If they don't have your real email or real address, then I wouldn't worry about it. Or contact them.

    Sounds fake. Nike just decides to give you 24 hours? A. I believe it'd be more than 24 hours (not a lawyer, but come on 24 hours?). B. If you have a stealth paypal/ebay account, then they probably don't know who you actually are. Hopefully you used a proxy when logging in to it, but I dont you have anything to legitimately worry about.

    They must have their bank in the name of Nike (which is illegal) so it might be legit.

    I got something similar from Adidas about a year ago. They were asking me to pay 500$ if I don't want them to sue me, bla bla. I never paid and to date I haven't had any problems. There was a thread on google with over 1000 pages of people who have received the exact same later, in the mail + e-mail , most of them were saying don't pay for it, it's not really anything. Their lawyer firm is trying to make money ;)
