I've been a seller with Ebay for over 10 years with 100% positive feedback rating. I decided to take one of my ECigs and place it on Ebay. Its a better alternative than smoking the real thing. Ebay flagged with a violation alert under the NO TOBACCO policy even though they have Pipes and Bongs sold on their site (just shows how corrupt they are and how they are being paid off by the large tobacco companies). I've been an activist with a scary judge of talent for some time. I called them up and questioned them about it. There was no way for them to explain how an ECig falls into a tobacco category. Its absolutely impossible so I got fed up, said a curse word over the phone and hung up. 

Later, when I went back to my Ebay messages inbox I had a 2nd violation alert for "vulgar language" ... THEY CAN'T DO THIIS. it was NOT on their platform. It was within America, The Land of The Free over the telephone. 

Since then I have opened an entire twitter and facebook campaign exposing them and calling them out for their corruption and what they did. I want the media to garner attention! 

And since I've done that, they have even retaliated by removing items I've had on the site for over 2 years selling with dozens of satisfied customers like The Bill of Rights booklets. They flagged me for selling cosmetic jewlery and frankinsence. the list goes on and on. They are entirely attacking me now and I'm not backing down on speaking out onsocial media. 

I need help spreading the word though. 

I need media attention and possible legal advice. 

God's blessings are best!

Curt Bizelli - Producer / Director For Actor (among other credits)

AUTHOR: - ()

This is Curtis Ray Bizelli.

Thank you for your feedback. I can assure you, even though I have big dreams and encourage everybody to have big dreams, that I am not a megalomaniac.


I have many credits if you would carefully read just the BIO alone on IMDB. In its "original purpose" I signed up for IMDB not for my own reputation but because I was hired to promote for an actor.

If you worked in the entertainment industry, you would know that IMDB is not strictly for Actors.

Again, thank you for being concerned about me.

God bless your success!

If you google "Curt Bizelli", the writer of this ripoff report (where no $ was lost), you will see he is a bit of a megalomaniac. Someone with the screenname cbizelli, wrote Curt Bizelli's imdb.com profile even though this person has zero acting credit.

You have to be kidding. Their policy regarding e-cigarettes is very clear:


Irregardless if they choose to ban that item under that policy, it's clearly not allowed. As to your freedom of speech, that's pretty laughable. You swore at an agent and they have every right to issue you a warning or suspend your account entirely if they feel like it. If you find other items that are in violation of policy, go ahead and report them to eBay and let them decide. And yes, you're likely on their radar and they're likely to continue to monitor your listings. Tell us again, exactly how were you ripped off?
