I am so happy to have found this forum since I have been searching for info all night.
I am a popular seller in my category and a mafia-like group of other sellers have ganged up on me and are getting others to buy from me just to leave negative feedback. Ebay is useless and is not helping. I am also getting tons of threats off of Ebay so of course ebay can do nothing about this either!! These sellers keep saying they are going to destroy me, ruin my account, etc.
My main question is that last week I got four emails saying that four VERY OLD accounts of mine were suspended because they were associated with a suspended user. Those accounts were over five years old and belonged to people in my family who used to live with me and those accounts were dead and hadn't been used in years. Somehow, my primary PowerSeller account (which is the only account I use) did NOT get suspended---thank god.
The accounts were under different e-mail addresses (aliases) under my master account, so that is how I received them. I had to explain this to Ebay when I called. I told them the old accounts belonged to my son etc. Ebay offered no helpful input as usual. I asked if my current account was in jeopardy and they could not answer that either.
-BUT- this all makes me very suspicious considering all of the harassment and stalking I get from these other sellers? Could they have somehow been behind getting those old accounts suspended? How could that even be possible? Still, I am having a hard time believing it is just a coincidence.
Can anyone offer advice about what might have happened? Do I need to worry about my main account being in jeopardy? How could a group of harassing sellers have access to accounts my family had years ago that I don't even remember existing?
I am going bats here.
Thanks in advance for any advice!!
