E**y : Avoiding Scams
I recently listed my GMC on E***.
Within hours one of our friends from the Commonwealth, had copied my auction, photos & description.
I reported it - it was removed.
Several more popped up - I reported them.
I got an email from Eba* China saying they weren't going to remove the chinese auction for MY guitar, UNLESS i could prove that the pictures they had nicked were mine!!!!!!
SO...... Basically they are saying that any photos you use - go into your photo suite type program and write your user ID or name or whatever across the photo before you list it. Proving the photo to be yours and if it did have someone elses name across it they'd be highly unlikely to try and use it.
Remember though - make sure you put your text in such a positition as they can't crop it off.
