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.
200133350054, 200133347754, 200133348402, 200133349756, 200133513649,  200133351248, 200133351560, 200133355503, 200133355900, 200133356435, 200133505052, 200133505219, 200133508875, 200133509578,  200133513268, 200133513649,

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 to sell. 

So, whattya going to do?  I can't see the problem getting any better- only worse!
