    i just want to know if i can get screwed for selling something which people are thinking is something else

    for example in my ad it clearly stated there is no " mark" on one side people are presuming its not on both sides and buying them off me like mad but am i in the clear?

    whoever ask's me a question im telling them its got a "mark" on it but most of them are clicking buy it now and im sure they will be in for a shock when i send them the products ive sold over 300 today also someone copied my ad and i reported them to ebay

    So if it was anything dodgy or misleading ebay would stop the ad? but they have replied to me saying they made the other chap stop his ad for copyright

    im just shitting myself as i cant believe how much im making here

    So you saying like "There is no mark on the left side of this product"

    but what your not saying is that there IS a mark on the right side.

    You could say something like "however the two sides are not identical. As opposed to the right side, the left has no visible marks."

    As long as you earn enough to pay a lawyer and make a profit i guess you'll be OK. On ther other hand this is fraud i think, which is a bit beyond blackhat.

    yes but im not lying in my ad Ebay have supported my complaints regarding the other's who copied my ad. So if there was anything illegal in my description would'nt they shut me down by now? its been 2 days my ads have been running people are thinking they are buying something else :D is that my fault?

    Its like some ads say nokia n96 give you all the description of the phone then underneathe they state
    please note you are bidding for the empty box

    mines totally different though i sold 250 yesterday and over 300 today the idiots are going mad but i just want to cover myself

    don't be surprised if they all of a sudden ban you coz it happens alot with all types of payment stuff especially with cpa networks, so be prepared for your big ban :) and don't do fraud like this again

    Beg to differ farfetched, Chinese clones usually have marks on the - the iphone logo comes to mind, mispelled and the apple has a bite on the wrong side etc

    I bet your selling 20ps from the u.k and saying there is no date on one side (even though this is correct) and they will think it is one of the royal mint errors where they forgot to print the date at all.

    Just be careful because if they are paying by paypal they can file a snad against you and you will be out of your shipping and have a bunch of them returned.

    Is that your regular ebay account? or is it a throw away. I also sent ya a pm:)

    EDIT:you said you sold 300 today and 250 yesterday...according to my calculations thats $24,000 and $20,000....multiplying by $80.

    I am wondering now if this is a spoof thread
