If you make a complaint to ebay proving they are your photo’s
that were used without permission, they (Ebay)will take down her auctions &
still charge her the fee’s for listing the auctions . If she keeps
losing money instead of making money she will stop & if she is reported
enough times she will be banned from ebay .. As she has once already been
banned for this activity .
16 auctions add up to a lot in fee’s that are paid for
with a credit card/bank account with no way to recoup any of the funds
for the listings that are taken down by Ebay for any rule violations . .
also do you really want your photo’s involved in any kind of fraud ? If
she found the photo’s don’t you think the buyers will also find the
photos after they have been ripped off ? This is why most people with
photo’s on the web now us a software that puts a watermark on the photo’s
to stop this activity. I’m sure there are people here on aroid-l who can
direct you to this software . this is also why I don’t post photo’s
on the photo hosting sites anymore .

The seller flowersforme123 has
used photos stolen from my website on quite a few of her auctions.

When I contacted her initially (I thought she used only two photos in two
auctions) she denied it, and then said she gets 99% of her images from Google Images!
Then I get this- (in part)
it was a mistke... your the first oerson who has ever emailed me like this so i
dont want to ever offend you... can i ask you a question.. why do folks get so
mad at folks using their photos...
The funniest thing is, the photos she stole are NOT of the plants she is trying
So, whattya going to do? I can't see the problem getting any better- only
