on Ebay is this considered completely legal?
You're selling a picture of a video game, but the buyer is a moron and doesn't read the description that says the item is a PICTURE only, and thinks it's an actual game, you legally did not commit a crime, right?
If they buy it, it's on them technically.

It may not be illegal, but it makes you a complete dick. The only reason you'd be trying to sell a picture of a video game is to try and trick people into thinking they're buying the game and getting money.

Laws are frequently based on what a reasonable expectation would be. Showing a photo of a game would absolutely create the reasonable expectation that a buyer is getting the game. It would be fraud which, of course, is a criminal charge.

That will depend on exactly how you worded the post, etc.

You engaged in a deceptive selling practice. Not the same as a criminal act but certainly one worthy of eBay canceling the transaction and giving the scammed person their money back.

This is completely legal if it states it in both the item title and the item description based on the terms and services of eBay.
