I'm selling a rather expensive figure which I listed as used. It's excellent
condition, but I got it in a bulk lot and have no history of it... I obviously
have to assume it was played with which is why I list as used and don't claim
"displayed" or "like new" or anything to that effect.

It was priced well so it sold within a few hours of listing. Out of curiosity,
I checked out the buyer's store and see that they're selling the multiple
of the same figure for double my price ($90) and have it listed as new, with
a description of "like new".

As a buyer, this guy is probably great. I got my money through instant checkout
and assume I'll get no complaints, but what's a seller to do as far as
feedback if he goes on to list this item as new? I couldn't say with certainty
that it was my item that ended up listed as new, but I do see one other seller
actually left him negative feedback as a buyer because he did the same thing.

Just wondering what others think.

You can report that listing. They actually literally confirm that they are used
in the description, while at the same time listing the item as new. That's
not allowed, just like I cannot list a 1x2 Brick with a comment "Just like a
1x2 Brick". Even without knowing what you know, it's a plain wrong listing
that a Bricklink admin should agree on.
