    well, it looks as if we can add another ebayer to our "blacklist"

    zoafrags, is stealing pics off of RC and using them as his own on ebay.

    this is VERY smooth too. it took me a couple of min to see this.

    check out fliger's pic of his blue zoas here:

    and this ebay auction here:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-BLUE-TUBS-...8QQihZ018QQcategoryZ46308QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    he's inverted the photo, and then cropped a picture of a frag into the bottom right hand corner.

    was it piberoptikz on RC?

    piberoptiz on RC is zoafrags on ebay. he is in the bay area reefers.

    that was an easy one to match up. his email address matches the same name as the previous ebay account name for zoa frags (jaipeecel)

    thats pretty sad if you do graphic design/photography, and all you do to plagerize an image is invert it, and crop another picture into it :lol:

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but could we notify his club? Obviously they can't police him, but they could kick his butt out.

    yeah, i'm not in the club, nor near it, and this didnt happen to me, so i would figure someone like fliger, or chris would report this to his club since they are closer, and dealt with zoafrags directly.

    you can also start a seller feedback thread on RC, or this forum,.
