I also sent ebay a message using the "report this listing." I would imagine that the only response we will get back is an auto response "we are looking into this" and "thanks for blah blah blah."

Lol Ebay sucks. My mom got ripped off several thousand bucks on a Tanzanite she bough like 6 months ago and ebay is "still looking into it"
It was the cleanest Tanzanite with the best color i've ever seen! Probably because it was made from resin and you could tell as soon as you picked it up! We even had it sent to the GIA for evidence and my mom is still filing claims. Paypal would only pay for like 300 bucks. Ripoffs man.
Holy hell! I love eBay but I would never pay for something over say 500 dollars with it? It's just not stable enough and it's way too much to lose... but your mom collects gems? That's pretty cool, I do too.. but mine are pretty much useless.. I more or less collect them for the "pretty colors".
I've bought like 23 things from eBay in the past like 3 months and haven't gotten ripped off yet. Could be luck? I usually always just stare at an auction and read it like 300 times before I actually order something. A little paranoid I am.
Yeppers. She's a gem fanatic lol.
I think paying 15K for a rock in some gold is kind of dumb but whatever lol. I've only got a couple of gems she gave me. a 25 ct. madira (or whatever it's called) citrine and a 40 or so ct. topaz. They are my birthstones lol.
Most of the ones I have I got from a cool nature stores for a dollar a piece. Like I said... preeettyy.
Anyways.. did anyone get a response from eBay?
Who would want poached plants anyway? They're much better steamed or stir-fried.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
Lol.... stir-fried neps....
I didn't expect eBay to go all crazy about it like "OMFG POACHER" and send out a SWAT team or something but I think they actually will look into it and delete their eBay account and stuff. At least I hope so...
As other's have mentioned, this is at least the 2nd time this person has posted these plants for sale. It has generated significant discussion on the Omnisterra listserver....
