Restamping engine

I reported EBay listing 190725155202, which disclosed that an engine block was restamped "WW" to indicate a 1970 Ram Air IV block. Restamping is something I don't agree with, even if disclosed. Just getting the word out..........

Either the guy was a moron thinking he would get away with this or hes just plum stupid. This guy's antics is not only illegal but jail worthy.

The ad is still listed when I checked a few seconds ago. Anything else I can do to get the ad "pulled," or is it just a matter of time by EBay?

Thank you!! I've run into a bunch of people who think it's ok to defraud and mis-represent by re-numbering blocks, vin tags, etc. Scumbags. Absolute scumbags.

The engine is the ORIGINAL block

but re-stamped "WW"
to indicate an original Ram Air IV engine !!

Pretty sad the lengths people will go to scam others simply for $$$. Had a friend years ago who thought he bought a real Hemi Roadrunner. Beautiful car. Yep it had a Hemi, with a cracked block (filled with hard block so it did'nt leak but always ran hot) and quarter panels sculpted out of pure bondo. You'd never know it because it was straight and black. Then the vin on the dash had the wrong rivets and it was never even a real Roadrunner. He ended up gutting it and turning it into a racecar.
