DESIGNS STOLEN THEN other seller harassing me and GETTING MY ORIGINAL DESIGNS REMOVED

PLEASE HELP!

Another seller stole exact copies of my original unique designs (which were custom made as a fundraiser for a Childhood Cancer Organization). I reported them and the other designs were taken down, BUT...the other seller retaliated by falsely reporting that my designs were infringements and sent me harassing emails and FB messages saying "REVENGE REVENGE", if you want e resolution, contact me" I refuse to communicate with the thief about getting his approval to list my original designs. I turned him in for Harassment and Amazon says they are looking into it but I am still waiting for a response. Can you please let me know if there are any other steps I can take.

Has anyone else dealt with anything like this or this seller claiming his name is Anthony Ray with email address contact_me_to_resolve@yahoo.com

Thank you for your help

This sucks.


Definitely stay in communication with Amazon on it and their copyright department. I've personally found them to be fast and conscientious about copyright violations I've reported on my designs, though I haven't had your particular issue.


I'd recommend keeping all copies of his emails, screenshot anything needed as well and if you don't hear back from Amazon's copyright department after a few days (not sure how many?) I'd include that in follow up emails or messages to them.

Amazon is DOING NOTHING! I have send multiple emails w screenshots and they are NOT DOING A THING! The guy has now submitted 4 false claims of infringement resulting in the removal of 4 of my original designs...PLUS he says he is going to continue to do so until my account is closed! Any advice would be much appreciated!
