Yes. That is exactly what happened. The really puzzling thing for me is that I've purchased many plants from Joe at several different shows in the past. I thought we had a good relationship.I was under the impression that last time this happened, JKorchids apologized and claimed it was the fault of someone on his staff and the problem would be corrected. I guess that didn't mean much.
I think it gives you legitimacy in the eyes of eBay and their vendors. In the email they sent me, they said that they will point the offending vendor to your about me page (as well as take other actions). It doesn't cost anything to set up except a little time, but it was pretty simple to do.Curious, what does an about me page do or hope to do?

I would doubt if ebay credited him, I believe they forewarn you before posting a picture on a listing. I think they have a special reduced listing fee for the month, so Candace is right, it's the cheap part but he's not moving plants & he has to go to the trouble of finding another photo or doing without! Does he have any listings left? I wonder if ebay questioned him on the other photos used? there could have been even more of his pulled!Not to be the wet blanket, but I imagine ebay credited him for it. Even if they didn't it was probably less than a $1 for the listing. Listing is the cheap part, it's the percentage fees and paypal fees that add up. But, it is definately a wake up call since it affects business and creates more work.
