Default WTF! Ebay Newbie

Check this **** out.

Some ebay seller is trying to sell his Aurora, and used MY picture to enhance the selling capability of his car.

WTF is wrong with people?!?!?!

I dunno if I should be pissed or flattered?!

I have emailed the seller and politely asked for the removal of my car on his page, its a false advertising thing, I will be contacting Ebay if he doesnt comply with my request

Funny thing, that image has been used as my sig pic in the past, and I know my pictures...

Still, ticks me off a lot...

I smell a scammer. Might be a good idea to contact Ebay on this one. I'll give him one chance to reply back to me tonight. Seems odd that he buys a 95, swaps rims, then sells it (I think) and leeches my picture to sell his crap.
