Love this auction!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Love this - this guy is selling an Express Tie but calls it "similar to Charvet". I bet half of the 10 people bidding on it think they're getting a Charvet. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....68&rd=1 Panzer

I am a great admirer of Charvet's silks I have worn Charvet ties. That, Sir, is not a Charvet tie. It is keyword spamming though. It bugs me that so many people do it. I just love it when I post a Kiton and have 20 items ahead of it on the search page with titles like: "Generico Tie Brioni Kiton Oxxford Attolini Gucci Fendi Isaia Barbera Armani Vuitton" ...and their auction gets 30 times the hits mine does.

And conveniently, no pic of the tag. That's not cool. Dan

Being in a bit of a passive aggressive mood today, I reported the guy to eBay for keyword spamming. I'll keep an eye on the auction to see if they do anything

Ridiculous. $31+ with over 3 days to go. That tie retailed for $45 brand new.

Yeah, that's a pretty dick thing to do. Alas, some people don't know any better and people who do will try to take advantage. Jon.

If I use a brand name that is NOT the brand of the auction item I do it inside the ad, not the title and do so for purposes of illustration. Example: "Belvest is a little nicer than Canali or Corneliani, not quite as nice as Brioni" to describe a brand that not everyone is familiar with. I rarely even do that and don't get complaints because 99% of the time folks search by title only and otherwise they can tell that I am being descriptive - not sneaky. It's a gray area - I think intent comes through most of the time. Pet peeve #2: "Tom James (Oxxford) suit yada yada yada" A shared parent does not a sibling make. I've seen some nice stuff from TJ, construction is good and they go cheap on ebay... but them ain't Oxxfords.

I guess being a rat worked out; the auction isn't up anymore.
