Hello.

A while back I was selling R-390 radios.
I posted dozens of pictures.
Anyhow, they were all "Air Checked" meaning that if WWV came in, I was fine with that.
I stopped selling them on ebay due to nit picking.
I ended up selling all of them at the local hamfest, operating, as is.
Later, FT-101s, a few more than few.
Amazing enough, I had less trouble selling them as "Deluxe CB radio" than as anything dealing with Amateur Radio!
But, it is all in the pictures.

Someone said somewhere, there is a way to see where the pic someone uses in a listing can be traced back to (i.e. a photo/pic off the internet, etc.).  Anyone recall what that process is or where that can be accomplished?  I saw that posted somewhere once but now can't find it.

Right about look at the pictures!  Have been seduced into buying things from the description when the photos were bad or even deceived when they took pictures from angles to obscure flaws.  I could say in a lot of cases the guys posting crappy photos are honest but idiots, but there is enough using deception to prove to me it is done one purpose a lot.
