Scare tactic? They aren't trying to scare you, And they aren't ASKING you to take off your listings. The copyright owner is TELLING ebay to take off your listings. What exactly are you having an issue with?

Sorry OP, you haven't got a clue.

That is not a sick scare tactic, its a perfectly understandable reaction to scammer seller counterfeit software.

Scare tactic is the part where the reporter added note : "The FBI will investigate the case!" which is nonsense, fbi has nothing to do with this, there are companies who just send a message to take off the listing or straight reports to ebay so listing gets taken out.

Bit confused as to why you think this is a scare tactic ? pirated software sellers get hefty sentences. Carry on selling them then. When you're arrested and summoned to court ... or your house gets raided. Don't come back here crying.

Find legitimate items to sell online or get a proper job.

Selling pirate software / films affects hundreds of thousands of people in the industry employed by the studios.

You better hope they didn't buy a copy as evidence. Which may have been submitted to the FBI

What are you wanting anyone to say, clearly its a tactic that worked on you, you needed to share it with us.

BTW, that document you linked to is heavily modded.

Either sell your dodgy software or dont. Nobody here is going to try and stop you nor encourage you.

Pirating software is a federal crime. Which the FBI investigates.

"The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of a copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by fines and federal imprisonment."

But yes, there are companies "who just send a message to take off the listing or straight reports to ebay so listing gets taken out"

Don't get me wrong. I have no qualms about pirating and couldn't give a rats ass, morally, about this situation. But the laws are the laws at the moment.

OP is scared because the message contains the following line:

"The FBI will investigate this case"


@OP:

WTF have you been selling?!

I'm not selling anything illegal on ebay actually and that was a message another seller got, most likely it was report and message to scare the seller so he does not repost the listing again, many times people just repost the listing and company workers have to repeatedly waste time to report them again to take down the listing, so this is great way to scare the sellers.

I sensed that it was not a message you got, and why you couldn't understand why I know its been doctored.

So what is the point of this thread then??

Exactly, looks 100% ⊗⊗⊗⊗ and the ! on the end of the sentence makes it so obvious.

Be fortunate you only got a VeRO warning this time. If you do it again, expect that account to go bye-bye.
