Ebay Customer Service... I just got off the phone after calling them about a listing which they removed for 'misuse of a brand name'. My case has been escalated and I can expect a decision within about 5 days to determine whether my listing is legit or if I am brand name spamming.

Apparently the photo in my listing is inconclusive.

Here's a buyer to avoid at all costs: c.st.james.f

He originally sent me a message regarding a pair of shoes I had for sale, but wanted to know if I would take nearly $100 off because he "did not like the fronts" and because "they were used". This had red flag all over it, so I didn't reply.

Fast forward a couple days, he buys the shoes for full price, but I'm still worried that he'll be a hassle when he gets them.

Sure enough, couple days after they were delivered, I see I have negative feedback from someone...hmmm, wonder who it could be? His reasoning was: "Rude! Refused to negotiate. Basic packaging. 2/10 stars". We'll ignore the fact that my packaging is (subjectively) not basic and quite protective, but the initial feedback seems as though he had made up his mind before he even got the shoes. Luckily, eBay shared my thoughts that the feedback was unwarranted. Either way, block, block, block!!

Just got restricted on ebay because I had listed a Samuelsohn SB James Sport Coat. Apparently SB James is a construction company, and if you include it in the title you get restricted and further suspended if it continues. Even though it says SB James as the model on the tag. What a joke eBay is.
Isn't their name S+B James? Maybe you can press eBay on that point.

I would harass them until they removed any and all restrictions. Someone there will have enough common sense to make the right decision.

Got it removed as a "one time courtesy". I'd be more safe driving truck drunk, than selling full time on ebay.

A one time courtesy? It’s not even the same effing company.

One of the most annoying things about eBay now is the number of fake shirts popping up just after an original is sold, but nothing takes the cake like an Asian scammer slapping a fucking watermark over their fakes so another Asian scammer can’t get in on the action. :facepalm:
