What to do?

This guy seems to have stolen my words to my ad and also a couple of my pics, including my pic of the mdl/serial number of my 724 I just sold. He's clear up in Minn. but is advertising it down here in Pa?
What should I do? His blower clearly is a 521.
Pics #6 and #9 are MY pics and also the words are mine except the 26". Apparently he changed that.

Last time I had this happen was about 15 years ago when I sold my 77 FLH Shovel. Guy up in Wis. tried using my whole ad for a scam listing.

Take it as a compliment, Craigslist scammers are always out there. I see "Zuluth" got about 2 feet of snow in the last storm.

Wake me up when the snow's done...

@micah,

You possibly could contact the person, and ask him to remove it if it bothers you, but I think that might be a fruitless call.

Once you post anything on a public media platform, well, as you can see first hand, control is out of your hands.

I suppose be glad he did not copy and use your contact information.

In the past, I have been contacted by people that ask me if they can use my posted photos, which is fine by me, and I give them permission, but that is rare,..... I see my photos posted over the web in many applications just doing a search, where I did not give permission, but actually I am honored to have them out there, as it just says something about how nice the photo is

I responded to his ad and played all innocent, asking if he maybe had two different blowers for sale and got his photos mixed up. Awaiting his reply.
