Eventhough 2 of the pictures are pictures of my own collection, I'm not selling.
This seller is very impolite to say the least.

You could send a message to eBay, including a link to the listing and a link to your own image. Let them know the image was used without permission. They will usually remove the listing and warn the seller about such practices.

I have reported to Ebay but not sure it will be followed because on the french version of Ebay, you cannot report an item.  I had to report the seller with inapropriate automatic Q&A to fill in.
I'll see.

The misleading thing, IMO, is that he uses VAM pictures for MAM selling.

So do I. I've seen auctions before that had the same photos.
And I've seen some sellers put their usernames over their photos,
probably for the same reason.

But I REALLY hate photo theft.

These days, sellers upload their images directly to eBay. Back in the "olden days" sellers had to host images themselves. One time I found a seller using some of my images, "hot linking" directly to my hosted images. What did I do? I uploaded different images using the same URL – some of the most vile, disgusting pictures I could find online. This, of course, changed the images in the listing to the new images.
Twisted Evil

Can't do that anymore, though.

I have also had sellers copy my item descriptions word for word. That was back when I used to write very detailed descriptions. No point in bothering with that anymore, as most buyers are using mobile phones and they don't bother reading the item descriptions.

eBay is a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
