I don't believe that not having a digital camera is a valid reason to take other peoples photos to sell the car. I read the description, my car is not a 95, it doesnt have chrome OE rims, it doesnt have stains on the seat..,..therefore dont use my pictures.

I'm just not impressed, if he doesnt have a camera and wants to use other peoples pics, ask...its just courtesy.

Cool picture tho eh

I'm just concerned for the buyer. Eff the seller, you want to use my car to mislead your ptoential buyers, go ahead, not my effin problem however there is an ethical and moral issue at stake.

Imagine Joe Ebay Buyer purchases listed 95 Aurora, and the pics he saw were of another vehicle (a better, newer more cared for vehicle) I would be ticked off...thats not what I bought, even though thats what was shown.

Some people have such terrible ethics it makes me sick

Well I went ahead and emailed him also, asking why he has to use other peoples cars to sell his, and if he was trying to scam people.

Here is his response:

Quote:
umm i dont think i am scamming people... because i do not have access to the
technology to up load pictures on ebay like others do, therefore i search
the web and find picture that best repersent my car. if any of those picture
were personally taken by you by all mean you can request that i remove your
picture. Why would i want to scam someone? For god sakes im just trying to
sell a car through an ebay auction. If i knew all this trouble entitled from
taking my friend'd advice and signing up to be a memeber of ebay i wouldnt
have done so.

Uuummm Yeah sure, maybe ebay should find out about it, LOL I like the pics that Jim pointed out to me that if you look at some of the interior pics you will see there are green side mirrors, so he is using pics of a green car too.

LMFAO.

Well, I emailed the guy as well, and of course no reply....nice

Oh well, guess he feels entitled to falsely pass something off as his...

if the people were smart, they would look at the pictures close, considring the mirrors are green, but the outside is white. those bidders must be dense to miss that. all i can say is wtf?
