Default Same photo on different ads

while scanning thru the ads on Blowers I noticed 2 different ads with the same photos which kind of surprised me? they are different Ph#s,Different towns(Close) same blower-Different prices? Just struck me as odd-I did email him to satisfy my curiosity and am waiting for a reply-I also added that many others will also be curious--Probably nothing but I have never seen anything like this before??

Maybe the people that have them for sale just copied the pics from a website and posted the stock photo. I have done it myself instead of using a photo that was not as clear.

I think that's fine to do as long as you let people know.

Agreed, my stuff was all new and I was just reselling it. It was all in the ad.

If I see an add with a copied photo I know right away this is not an add for me. Sorry, but if you can't post the true picture something is wrong!! jmo. It may be ok but I'm not taking a chance. I see so many adds that are just terrible. Bad pics, dirty part (car, trailer, heads, etc) bad discreption or something like $XXXX firm. If I can't sell it for $xxxx i'll keep it!! Well keep it is all I can say 'cause I'm not dealing with them. Some adds leave no doubt the person took care of it and some are so bad I wouldn't buy it. When placing an add think about what you would buy!!
