I have been looking for a red purse and came across an auction that I put on Watch. I got an email saying that auction was ending soon and at the bottom it always shows similar items. It caught my eye that one of the similar items is the exact same pictures of the first auction.

Is there a "Things that make you go hmmmm" smilie???

That is really strange.... what are the odds that both have identical pen marks?? Either someone stole someone else's pictures or it seems kind of scammish.

I feel bad that there are bidders on both auctions.
I wish there was something that could be done for them. :sad:

Ebay now allows people access to others pictures, I think, I remember reading here on the forum, that unless you opted out your pics would be available to other sellers.

That's interesting. Thanks for passing that along!

I think that it would be more fair to buyers if sellers were required to tell you that the pictures you see are not the exact product that would be sent to you.

I'm going to have to go figure how to opt out. Ebay shouldn't do that because every item is in different condition and needs it's own pics.

I opted it out. There's instructions on the eBay sub forum. Do some search and you'll find it!

I'm not sure if this is what you need but here it is anyway!

Sharing and using content

For the convenience of sellers, we offer a product catalog of photos, item descriptions, and specifications, which are provided by users and/or third parties. Sellers can use content from this product catalog when creating their listings.

We might, at our discretion, use photos that you upload to your listings to represent a product in our product catalog. If we do, we’ll display your user ID and a link to your My World page on the product details page of the product featured in your photo.

All photos in all listings will be automatically reviewed for possible inclusion in the catalog, unless you opt out of this program. While there’s no guarantee that any of your photos will be selected, you may gain valuable exposure in the catalog if they are.

If you don’t want us to consider your photos for inclusion in the catalog, you’ll need to opt out. You can opt back in at any time if you change your mind.
