Cool New user listings taken down for "verification"

Hi. I'm a new eBay user, posted my first auctions about a week ago. Today I had 5 items up and one was in the final hours, probably about to sell because it was being watched. Then suddenly everything's gone and I got this message that I have to call to provide identity verification. So I did, answered a few questions, they guy said OK, now you can relist your items. OK, a little inconvenient, the info is all still there but I have to start over with the auctions, and so the one that was about to end has started over. I'll have to wait 5 more days. They said they do this with ALL new users. Is this the case?? I haven't read anyone else complaining about it so I'm wondering !! If they want me to call and verify my identity, couldn't they give me the chance to do so BEFORE taking down my listings? .... please let me know if this has happened to you. ----DJ

To Lu Pin: They probably sent you an email with a phone # and a PIN (ID#) to enter. Customer Service was very nice and helpful (and prompt). The phone # they gave me was 866-540-3229.

To DH: My account was about a week old. The Customer Service guy said they do this to all new users. Smells fishy to me - wouldn't I hear people hollering?!

Thanks to both for responding. -DJ

yes, ebay does this to alot of people now especially if your new without even calling you just emails.

items can be removed for the following reasons on ebay:

1. vero items

2. what your selling is too hott meaning its very popular and there cutting off people with 0 feedback selling that hott item because they want to protect you which is total bs

3. the photo you provided is a stock photo and ebay wants you to put a photo of the item you have along with your user id on paper for proof to users

4. competition users are reporting you for wrong reasons just to get you off the radar


how do you avoid all this? just have multiple stealth accounts and be prepared for docs incase they ask


good luck!

I have had this happen to me for a while now. Every eBay account I create gets "BAM!" suspended until I call. But I got them because I just created an account in like 1 hour and I would list an iPhone 4.

Default Docs

Hi,
You talk about the docs. Could you tell me where to purchase on this forum? Thank you very much. I heard that PS docs are not useful. Because there is a tool which can analyze the infor of the pictures. Such as camera, PS or not.
