Stop selling the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ is obvious but....that gmail account...that grammar....
Looks like a possible scare tactic.
They will not just send you an email, the items would also be removed right away if it were the true owners..

If they are ⊗⊗⊗⊗, quit it.
If they are real, call their bluff and show your evidence.
Even with the said evidence, they just may not want you selling their wares.

Lol, No reputable Law firm will ever use gmail. Also, have you looked up this law firm? To me it smells like a competitor. I would call their bluff!

Email notices do not count.

Bulldust notices from rivals do not count.

Selling foo-foos and having the chance to damage your account do count.

Entire notice is a scare tactic.

Have no contact whatsoever with this Law firm. You are exposing yourself to be checked if you do.


Do pay attention to what you are selling. One day this will be real

Your duty as a seller is to ensure your items are acceptable and not hot grubby money-makers for you.
