Default Weird as hell suspension email subject line!!

I set-up a clean eBay account last week for my wife's sister for her to sell on eBay some of her own old stuff. I listed an old vase for her last week, for a little over $30 plus around $15 for shipping, the normal price. Well, it didn't sell, so I re-listed it for her today. she then calls me about 2 hours later and tells me that she now wants to sell it for $25 instead of $30. No problem, I log into the account (always checking the IPs, of course) and change it for her to $25. She just about 15 minutes ago called me again and told me she wants to sell it for $30 anyways, instead of $25. I know she changes her mind all the time, not just with things for sale, so again no big deal, I log in again and change the price again to $30.

Just when I log back into my regular eMail account, she calls me again and tells me she received an eMail from eBay that her account was suspended.

I'm like "wtf" and tell her to forward it. Guess what it says?

Dear USERNAME (email@email.com),

Your eBay account has been suspended. eBay took this action after determining that your account was acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies.

You are prohibited from using eBay in any way. This includes using another existing account or registering a new account.

Any seller fees that are still owed are due to eBay immediately. eBay will charge any amounts that you have not previously disputed to the billing method that is currently on file.


Sincerely,
eBay Trust & Safety
And what was even weirder, the subject line said:

I am not joking. That is the actual eBay suspension eMail subject line. I dont care if eBay reads this or not, the account is dead anyways, so I may as well post it.

But I'm wondering, maybe someone has hacked into the eBay system and is suspending accounts for the fun of it? I doubt eBay would on purpose send suspension eMails with "HAHAHA" in the subject line?

On top of that, why would even eBay suspend an account for listing only an old $30 vase? For changing the price twice maybe? But still, wtf..

My first guess would be that it's a prank email.. I assume you didn't just take your sister-in-law's word for it, and checked to make sure that the account really WAS deactivated?

I'm also wondering how it's possible to list a BIN item on a brand new account..

Yeah, but I kind of assumed it was since I don't know why anyone would be so picky about just an opening bid "price".

It was definitely from eBay. I logged into the account and the message is also there under 'Alerts' and the account is indeed suspended. I contacted eBay about it and am waiting to see what their response is. Either they now have children employed there or someone gained access to their system.

I've been getting these lately as well; I figured it was just some weird glitch in the system. When you open up a new account go to Live Help and just ask them directly.

I don't think eBay like sellers to constantly modify a listing. I did have one of my accounts suspended for constantly changing the Ad in a short period of time. If was only a 7 day suspension. After that never had a problem with that type of suspension..

Yeah you changed the price way too many times. And the numbers in the subject heading is either acsii or binary numbers. Basically when you type a letter it equals a number that computers read. So all in all that subject heading actuallys spells out a word.. But its masked by the numbers.

I'll convert it to the words for you later

So that means she got suspended because she changed the price twice? That's ridiculous and funny at the same time :D

So once your account is limited, How long does it stays that way and what would you need to do to get it unlimited?

Imjustme,

I think if takes more then 2 changes to get you in trouble. IF you do it to often, it is suspicious.

How many times did you edit the listing? And over how many minutes?
