Default Now have to verify 4 buyers acc!

Hi all,

Dont know if this is old news but while setting up a few accounts this morning was asked to verify with a phone call or credit card. This wasn't for a selling account just a buying account (Usually they ask for these details when u open a selling account).

I suppose in a way its good as it will hopefully discourage people from setting up accounts just to neg competitors.

LOL I think that's exactly why they're doing it. I only think it's good as they're continuing to shoot themselves in the foot with their increasingly unrealistic signup requirements..

I'm sure it's random.. in fact, I registered both a new ebay and paypal account yesterday and neither was asked for any further verification just to sign up as a buyer.

Unless you mean they do it later on, after you sign up but before you start to sell..?

No, its as soon as you sign up. I'll try it with another account later on. It might just be in the UK.

No just for a buyers account I think its random. I heard people also saying they were asked to add a cc and bank to start listing. Ive never had that happen.

I've had this happen twice already. It's not so random. Eventually it'll become a requirement so if you can register as many accounts now as possible.

Agree with above, allthough when i tried again with another account i didn't have to verify. I imagine they are just testing the water and it will become a requirement sooner rather then later.

HI,
I have had this happen when my new telephone wasnt listed, or wasnt a common one for the area,
also--seems to happen if youre a male between say 20-45 ??
Have only had it happen on females once in a while, mostly male names..
Maybe the males are the "higher credit risks" ??

Looks like good grounds for a law suit

No doubt the day will come where buyers will be required to add a bank account and accept direct debit...

ebayhateluv,

I wouldn't be surprised if what you said about the female names was true! But the problem with registering under a female name as a guy comes when paypal tries calling you on the phone..

When paypal does call you on the phone and hears the male voice with the
girl's name (or vv), just tell them you are undergoing a sex change. They finish
the call quickly. You have to learn to think quickly on your feet!

Yes. I have done that to two different organizations. The point is that this allows you to keep the upper hand and sure makes them squirm.
It creates a warning bell "discrimination"....

Although since Paybay looks at this forum so closely, I wonder if they'll change how they react to something like this. They would probably have you fax your doctor records or something.

Hmm, somehow the probability of discrimination might deter that...... you just
scream in a tizzy fit voice.
