This warning goes out to all resellers. Thrift store owners, yard sale sellers, eBay sellers, Craigslist sellers, etc.

If you sell used items, be careful. I was lucky. Not only can resellers be liable for damages, they can be liable for loss of life. Fines imposed can range from $100,000 to $15,000,000.

Do your homework. Below you’ll find the website links I referenced in my video so you can do your due diligence and ensure you minimize your risk. I am not an attorney, and please do not take my comments as legal advice. (I might start adding a disclaimer to my auctions/listings going forward, releasing me from potential liability associated with use of the purchased product.)
