    [FONT=Arial, Verdana]The rights owner reported the following information:


    I am intellectual property counsel for C**** Corporation, which owns, inter alia, Registration No. 1,148,225 for the B**** trademark. You are offering for sale on eBay.com a B****S product, which C**** believes is a counterfeit (the "Infringing Goods"). C**** has asked eBay to take down its listing offering these Infringing Goods.

    I am asking you to agree to (1) immediately stop the sale of the Infringing Goods and all use of the B**** mark, (2) not sell, offer for sale, advertise, or otherwise display the Infringing Goods or any other goods bearing C***'s intellectual property rights; and (3) provide us your source for the Infringing Goods, including the company name, contact name, address, phone and other identifying information of the source.

    I look forward to hearing from you or your attorney soon.

    "lawyer name" blah blah

    Ok, So They Nailed 2 of my listing but left others up. I took those down and refund the buyer that bought today, I just listed last night so I haven't sent any out. My gut said one of the buyers today was a setup buyer so I trusted my gut. So I've done 1 &2 what do I do about number 3? they were purchased from dhgate. Keyword being they BELIEVE their fake not they know. This Is A legit account or I'd toss it and forget and I will go stealth from here on out. Should I just consider that account gone, close it and ignore it or tell em where I bought em? I figured someone on here, would have ran into this before and could tell me how to reply or reply at all.
    I don't see where there threatening to sue so should I just wait it out and see of they email again?
    Ebay gave me a 7 day selling suspension
    Should I close my ebay account?
    I don't mind ratting out my supplier if it saves me lol
    I've sold 19 of the items that were listed last month with no issues. I had 12 items listed, so not like I was killin it.
    I had thought about sending a email saying no problem on 1 and 2 and I didn't know they was fake I was told they was legit and I would gather what information I had then email them and then just never email again and see if they email again? I think it's a scare tactic.
    Please Don't Say You Screwed Or Something To That Effect I Don't Think It's That Bad Yet And That's A Useless Answer

    Looks like a competitor, reason i say that is because...normally ebay Vero will just remove the listings you won't get contact by a attorney unless your selling 100's of these items a day.

    Thank You, Green Goblin! I Appreciate Your Input Very Much. So Should I Just Let It Cool For While And Not Reply And See If They Email Again?
    I'm not selling 100"s of these per day. more like 2 or 3.

    I will add and this maybe a clue. I was selling one style of this item without a hitch for almost 2 months and then I tried a different style of this item then got hit with this? O also the "lawyer" left a return email for the company, not his or a phone number. Wouldn't eBay have suspended me if the company really thought I was selling "replicas"

    You got an email or an ebay message from the lawyer?
    A competitor cannot get your email address from ebay but a vero member can.

    If it was written in an ebay message check the sender account, is he a vero member?

    Just stop selling immediately and let it cool down. Most probably they wont contact you again. It's a C&D letter.

    Never sell with your legit info especially the products you're selling.

    I pulled all listing's after the ebay message. What it was, was a vero take down message and that was included in with it. It was not a direct email to my inbox.

    Unless you get a certified letter from their legal team then its not that serious. Just ignore #3 and stop selling replicas on your legit account.
