Default One bad apple, Leaves You bankrupt and destroys ur family.

Finally making a decent income.. positive feedback.. Power seller. Great feedback, 24/7 customer service driving me insane... so many months to get where im at. And........ then ebay user bad apple mcScamsky comes along and now im under the watchful eye of ebay.
Got the copy of the ebay user telling ebay "he'll never use ebay again!!"

7 day suspension from ebay. Waited it out... account reinstated.

Then bam 7 day suspension again a few days later with no reason or code.

So i know that guides tell you once your suspended you are flagged and monitored i.e. targeted.

Is this a sales tactic to buy the book or is this true?

Ive switched products, found a new supplier... and bam suspended again. This time 7 days again.

The main question is.... should i wait out the 3 remaining days to be reinstated and go through the process of a new product that comply? (With whatever was wrong with my newest product) Thought plastic cases were safe but have to find something new.

So wait for 7 day to lift or start ghost accounts and risk making a newbie error and recieve a permanent ban?

Nobody gets suspended for just one offense.

No idea what you're selling.

Why don't you back up and try again, and this time tell the entire truth, not just the little bits that make you look like a victim.

Goal of the site is to help for establish new stealth accounts - items that you choose to sell are your own to analyze and see what's wrong. These plastic cases sound problematic then...branded? trademarked? I can foresee issues but unless you elaborate, there is no way I am breaking out a crystal ball on this

Welcome to the forum, Stealth needs to be studied so you can master it.

My crystal balls are packed away too.

Something is missing, what's is your product? and is it high risk?

The eBay Stealth is created to help people who were wrongfully suspended.

I don't know what you were selling and how you operate, but if you are a high risk in terms of products and operations, no matter how good your stealth account is, it'll still be high risk.

So you need to study the book better and ask more questions in here and actually share openly what you are doing. Otherwise, we can't help you

You're lucky they gave you several 7-days. In my experience it is warning -> 3 day -> 30 day. That is, unless they just suspend your account from the get go.

Once you get the review, they'll keep an eye on what you're putting up for sale. Doesn't matter if other sellers are selling the same thing and not getting the ax.. you're the target for now.

Obviously you're better off diversifying across several accounts to avoid future interruptions to your business.

Slow day on the forum again.

Default Re: One bad apple, Leaves You bankrupt and destroys ur family.

Sorry for the lateness of my reply (typed the initial thread on my phone and wasn't sure whether it saved or not.. anyways.)

I have been away reading and working on upgrading my White Belt in the art of Stealth-o-nomics.... still a newbsky.

Yes at first my products were a heavy VERO concern and i knew it was a matter of weeks was hoping a full year but no.. only a couple months of sweet profitness.. just enough to show me accounting, book-keeping and shipping importance and customer support.

Then i did as my competitors did.. played lawyer ball and worded the item differently/vaguely. But of course that was a lack in sales and heavy questions implicating VERO violations, so i switched categories and product completely, not wanting a second violation.

This time however i did not think Atari fell under the VERO program.. i had looked them up and didn't see them in the VERO list. Or so i thought.. i was still careful not to mention the company.

Anyways on the second slip up i kept being pestered (i believe by a competitor) if "any roms were included" and this dude didn't let up for 7 hours.

I told him only the roms that are "freeware".... BAM - 7 day suspension. Dont think ebay has a crack team of lawyers observing each case.

SO NOW its onto plastic clases... just to clarify. (other non vero items as well...)

Sorry if i was vague before. Needs to be a certain degree of vaguery i suppose.



So.... no these plastic cases are not copyrighted at all (well 75% arent.. just keeping this vague and simple). Just trying to do the non sleazy thing here and obviously wont result in a ban.

But mane-o-mane is there easy profit in the world of VERO. (until like stated above you become the target)

No, i was warned like 400 times until suspension. Then one warning suspended. Tell the truth. Cmon now... if everyone told the truth id have all the wholesalers and number one items to sell!!!!

I was just inquiring into being targeted... but the answer to that is obviously yes. Now all my listings are monitored by a human and no longer by just a machine looking for keywords.

I agree that on forums, when you tell the truth about the situation, you get a bunch of unhelpful or snarky posters telling you off..... You will often get a few useful answers, you have to read them all and get the info you need.....

If it is as serious as bankrupt, and family income - you know this will be a constant tiring battle, depends if you think you can find products that are less hassle, keep your mind open about alternatives...if you are not looking then you will not find these products, so sometimes it takes being kicked off to make you do the research...

You were lucky to survive that many warnings.

eBay is pretty evil with warnings.

They give the warnings to get the attention of the seller to change their ways or get outright suspension.

What I just wrote is the reason so many sellers end up here, shell-shocked like you.

How are you going about finding your way in stealth?

Kyle, I'm glad you have the stealth guide it will help you a lot and build a strong basis from now on.

About people responding to you in a snarky way, just ignore them or you can tell me.
However there are a lot of people here who are pros and are eager to help.

Selling vero is quick money yes, but it never last and comes with a whole lot of trouble as you already experienced. As oompa said, would you be able to find products to sell that are much less stressful and yet make money still?

I find that if you don't know how to do this, learn how or find a partner who is good at researching.,
