    What's wrong with the auction? He's not asking an unreasonable price, his listing description looks accurate, and reusing pics (if you have multiples of the same item) isn't against any policy. He doesn't have the highest feedback but just one neg - could be worse.

    What's there to report to ebay?

    I think he is saying that he used somebody else's picture, which generally leads to fraud.

    But there's no policy against using a picture from another auction, per se.

    Now in the case of a toy like this, sure you should have the actual item being bid on. For brand new stuff though I'll admit being guilty of using a Hasbro pic or pic from another website. It's not what I like to do but sometimes you just don't have a camera and you do what you gotta do.

    I still don't see the problem. Maybe concern, but not an all out "this guy is scamming people". If there was a pattern with his other listings or a history of this maybe.

    Check his use of the English language in his feedback. I don't think he's a proficient speaker--he may be copying auction text because he isn't able to write his own in English.

    And sometimes 2 people are from the same store, or they could be brothers or cousins. Not trying to stick up for him because he might be a bad guy who knows, just saying you shouldn't jump to conclusions.
