Turn 'em in to Ebay. I noticed it earlier, and didn't have time to pursue it.
.>on edit, I just turned them in, it is against Ebay listing policies to have a link to a site outside of Ebay offering items for sale, the boat dealership is certainly one of those.<
Also, Gene, if you own the photo they are using, you can turn them in for that as well.

Member Insideout & and I both have had our respective sites used without permision. Your observation makes three. A little unsettling, isn't it?

When you do a whois search you find that the url airstreamtraveltrailers.com is registered to the same guy you owns the boat site mentioned below Boat Super Center

So, it looks like he probably has the right to sell the domain name.

I am sure he bought the domain and can sell it if he wants, but he does not have permission to use the pic of my dealership!

He also has it for sale under trailer parts, instead of domain names, the first hint of a potential scam. His auction for our man Rudy at least is in the correct spot.

You are absolutely right. And... i can't imagine he'll get much for the url - it's not worth the hassle with the mother ship!

It's a scam. Somebody might bid on it but hundred-to-one Airstream will protect their brand and put that name right out of business! Wanna buy the Brooklyn Bridge?

Does anyone know anyone at Airstream they could pass this on to as well? I'm sure they may have some issues - if nothing else they have the deep pockets to pursue it if the guy is playing games. I look at our recent name change as an example.
