Default Help on ebay suspending

The first ebay suspension I got when I listed an item. They asked me basic questions such as where do I get the items from and do I have it on hand. I just got another suspension and they asked me public database questions. How do I avoid them asking me public database questions?

As in questions that they can search on a "public" database. They asked me the name associated with the account if there is a middle name. The addresses lived at. Any cars owned or leased and the last 4 of the social security number.

Ebay are getting real cute now at catching fraudulently created or suspicious accounts You need to appear normal.

When you're creating the account you need to think like they do. Does your online persona appear normal? Are you acting normal? Are the goods you're listing normal?

How would a normal newbie act.....and do that.

Cheap items and slowly. Even if you are taking a loss on items it will help build feedback as well as trust with ebay.

I would not add high value items until you are more sure the account is stable.

In meantime you could start making new accounts.

Folk aren't going to spoon-feed you their goods or account maturing details.

Anything nondescript and generic will suffice.

Are generic phone cases considered high risk?

Pick up items at Goodwill if you don't want to sell your personal items

It's 7 days to new years, things should calm down a bit.

try making a new account then and selling again.

TAKING your own pictures help and describe the item yourself instead of copy and paste from elsewhere.
slightly used items better than brand new item.
think if you were disposing your own personal items around house,how many can you have?10.20.30 or 100,.200,300?
and what would you have around the house,not 20 ipods,iphone,laptop,50 Gold Eagle coin,100 Krugerand?

Use personal realistic items that are low risk. Vases, books, boxes, antiques, collectibles, phones, etc
