Just wanted to post this to increase the likelihood that resellers and liquidators will see this. I have posted this on eBay as well.
Mary Kay Inc Files Lawsuits Against Numerous eBay Sellers of Mary Kay Products
Dateline: December 4, 2008
If you sell Mary Kay products on eBay…beware! Mary Kay Inc. may be coming after you.
In the last week, several eBay sellers of Mary Kay products have been served with lawsuits.
You may also be aware of the ongoing lawsuit that Mary Kay Inc. filed against Touch of Pinks Cosmetics, and eBay seller who also runs a separate online store selling Mary Kay products.
The Mary Kay consultants who spend their days policing the listings on eBay and turning Mary Kay sellers in to Mary Kay Inc. are surely gloating and celebrating now. Unfortunately, there’s no evidence that these sellers have done anything wrong. And especially given that Mary Kay Inc. has yet to win any judgment against seller Touch of Pink, these additional lawsuits seems a little premature and aggressive.
If you sell Mary Kay products on eBay, I would urge you to make sure you be careful — whatever that may be, I suppose, at this point. Mary Kay Inc. is out for records from these sellers to see if they are purchasing products from active consultants and directors in the company. They assert that this is interfering in their business.
We will have to wait to see how this all plays out, but either way, it is vitally important to anyone liquidating all those excess Mary Kay products on eBay, and for that matter, other sellers of similar products.
