I can't find any information about your plugin. Your website is down, it's not on JED, nor on VM extensions page. Under what license was it released? If GPL or similar FOSS license, then redistributing your plugin is actually legal. If that's the case, there's nothing you can do about existing versions. But you can release new versions under a proprietary license that doesn't allow redistribution.

Yes, they can. GPL licensees can distribute the software for free or for a fee, just as you can https://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html.

It's unlikely that site is that concerned wherever they have a legal right to resell your plugin or not.

All you can do is remove the name of their site from your orginal post.

Also delete the link to their site.

You have effectively given them a spam link.

Don't change the name of your site. It will just confuse Google.

If you think the spam site has infringed your copyright. Go to

https://support.google.com/legal/answer/3110420?sjid=5954014564143922562-EU

and ask Google to remove any links containing your products and that site from Googles search results.

Do a search for

"shipment tracking for virtuemart"

to find any links to the their site.

Why JED must require the plugins all have GPL licenses? if the plugin authors want to sell it ?
Isn't it contradicting´╝č
