I do not understand what you mean?!
Just show him. The police will only ask what you have to do with him and what you bought from him.
Then you say: Yeah, nothing at all, but he sold something 3 times on Ebay and then discontinued it, etc.
When they have finished laughing, you can go again ...
Or do you want to get all buyers on board?
The buyers are anonymized on Ebay ...
You have proposed a criminal complaint ... (I am not in the mood to write too much now, because everything is bullshit to be discussed anyway, hence a quote from http://www.advocado.de
"If the public interest in prosecution is low, the public prosecutor refers to the option of private prosecution ".
Private lawsuit can stop if you have been harmed yourself (to close the circle with my first four lines).
You don't have to think of law as romanticized, the prosecutors are all completely overburdened. If they see a value in dispute of 120 €, a file is ideally skimmed over briefly and ideally the proceedings are discontinued or a settlement suggested.
I think you interpreted something in my first statement that I didn't want to say at all. I never said -I- would want to file a criminal complaint. I wanted to say "you can" file a criminal complaint if one of the articles is important because the seller is obliged to comply with the stated reasons.
Whether the public prosecutor's office closes the proceedings because of insignificance or the lack of public interest is of secondary importance for what I said in the first post and don't be angry with me, but you can only assume that and you don't know whether that is would be discontinued or not, since the public interest is not a fixed quantity, but an individual discretion of the public prosecutor.
You file a criminal complaint and the public prosecutor has to deal with it. Unless you present the case so badly as the injured party that they cannot even establish a legitimate suspicion. So take a screenshot, etc.
Such a seller would at least get a hearing sheet and if he got two or three times one, it has an effect even if you as the buyer might not see the card after all. But just in case there is more to it, you know that it is possible. The BGH judgment concerned EUR 1,700. What is also relatively little and to go to the BGH for the money means something.
Courts are always overloaded and everyone has to decide for themselves whether the amount in dispute is important enough or not. If you don't want to do the work for 120.00 EUR, it's perfectly fine. But if it's important to you, do it. That's what the public prosecutor's office and courts are there for, and I also think it's important that such types also notice that it can have consequences.
