nnjohn, you may be correct in principle but tampering with odometer mileage is a crime. When it comes to a fair and free auto marketplace, consumers depend on the integrity of the odometer. That is probably the single most important factor in a model's price, and I'm sure you know that.
Rolling back the odometer (if this is what happened) is not an ordinary fudging, like saying the leather is in great shape when in fact there are tears.
I think John N did the right thing under the circumstances although I would also have contacted eBay even if doing so would be pointless.
