Default eBay phone verification - on some accounts, on others not?

I recently made a few new eBay accounts and started selling 1-2 items per week. I noticed on one account, my listing was killed within 2 hours and I was asked to confirm a telephone number (and receive the call with the PIN number) to start listing again. On another account, I've listed over 10 items so far without ever being asked to confirm a phone number. Are they just randomly picking accounts for verification? I don't think they could call all new accounts created every day...

I think they are in some instances and also when customers complain about incorrect information.

It just happened to me.. not that it's a problem as I provided a "working" phone number.. but I wish these customers would just mind their own business sometimes.

When I used gallery and listed 10 items on three names, I was called for each name.

When I listed 3 items without gallery, then 2 hours later listed 10 items with gallery, no phone call on the next 3 names.

It's weird. I sell the same things (different photos and different design, of course) on all accounts. On one account I got the listing removed and prompted to take the phone call less than 5 minutes after listing the first item. On the other one, I listed almost two dozen items now without getting a call. It's like a random system that picks you...
