Default eBay is now calling new account holders!

Guess what new and "exciting" thing eBay is up to today. So I opened a brand new account today. I was asked to verify my phone number, which I did. Then within half an hour later I receive a phone call from eBay! A woman asked me if this was my name, if I opened this account. She said they are doing random checks of new accounts. She asked me if I had posted any auctions yet. I told her I did. She then asked me what the auctions are for. I had to briefly describe the product. She said "that's perfect, that's exactly what I'm looking at right now." That was the end of our conversation. I open new accounts all the time. I wonder how random this really is. I don't want them to call me every single time.

ok here you go again. Another account same thing...
maybe it is just today Saturday. But maybe it's a new rule that comes with new ebay note. Any one else want to confirm.. Some one open new account and post something.
i guess they are really pissed that 1000s of people list actions and then don't pay them .

What ebay should do is call every seller after they put an auction so if you put up 20 they call you each time to approve it before it goes up.

ebay is like trying to get into the secret service, all these security checks and for what, to just have your account suspended for some bs reason a few weeks or months down the track.

If she's that 58 year old senior account manager I had last time, I already know the answer. She ain't wearing any. :D
