I started my eBay account about 2 years ago to buy some things whilst I'm living overseas in Japan. I have 100% positive feedback, and have never had any issues with buyers or sellers. Just today I decided to list some items for sale (music posters and calendars, all official goods, not bootlegs or knockoffs, and not adult oriented or even questionable) and not 5 minutes after the last item was listed, they were all removed and I was sent the dreaded MC999 Account Suspension e-mail.
I was given NO information as to why, and when I asked, was told that my account was suspended for being a "security risk", and that I had no recourse to appeal. WTF is that supposed to mean? A security risk? WTF. I had no idea that buying the occasional pair of tights, or trying to sell ten posters made me a terrorist.
I'm so sick of eBay's *** anyway -- charging fees on people's shipping costs now? Monopolizing PayPal and forcing sellers to use it whilst charging fees there as well? Forget it. I'm done with them.
