    Illegal sale

    Does anyone know the best way to deal with something like this? I've notified the seller, but are there any other steps that need to be taken?

    Illegal because the plant is protected? It looks like he didn't dig it up.

    Report it on ebay, send something to the wildlife enforcement?

    Illegal because the plant is federally protected. I contacted him (and eBay) and told him it could be sold within Ohio, but it's illegal to sell across state lines. I'll see if he (or eBay) responds.

    Technically he could give them away across state lines, it's always just as long as he doesn't make a profit.

    He could, but he's got these on eBay.

    From what is being said then, he could auction off postage and handling expenses, for this "free" plant he is giving away to the auction winner?
    Or perhaps auction off the pot he puts it in, while giving away the plant for free...right?
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    According to the thread I linked, you're not even allowed to charge for shipping. I'd wait to see if he takes the listing off before reporting him to ebay, it might just be a misunderstanding.
