Default Are the days of stealth officially at an end?

I just got off the phone with ebay after spending a large majority of the day dealing with them. I can say this definitively. If you call and reach the Philippines hang up the ******* phone immediately and call back. It really isnt hard to figure out, and if you have to, ask them if they are in Asia or U.S. They must outsource there for a reason, that reason being they are miserable cold hearted bast****. Immediately I was told to fax documents. When I finally reached a U.S. agent they just hit me with the 3 questions.

Now here is the big problem. 1. apparently there is a guy by the name I used in the town I used. I found that out during the call by using spokeo. Which by the way is sometimes a really great tool. So obviously even though it was a different address they were going off that guys info. And here is the major major concern. According to 2 representatives, all new sellers will now be required to identity verify. And one of the questions will always be what is the middle 2 digits of your SSN.

I know this could be a lie and actually they are only doing it for the holiday season. Of course while plastering ads about selling unwanted gifts everywhere. But do any of you think its possible? I know its a question of manpower... So is it possible?

If it was then ebay would not have anyone left.

They have destroyed themselves and ruined many good honest sellers and buyers accounts.

No, this isn't the end of ste.alth. It seems more like the lack of experience and knowledge on your part.

Also, OP and the first responder have interesting stats:

I just find it interesting that you 2 found each other on the exact same night at almost the exact same time. On top of having registered quite some time ago at almost the exact same time again.

Probably someone was has been banned and is trying to scare people.

Stealth is alive and well and while I was gone for a while I now have almost 500 accounts up and running.

So it works like a charm if you know what you are doing.

At Ebay live they announced the best quarter they have had since 2002.

And they know the money is coming from people like all of us.

I resent the implication that I am in some sort of collusion with another ID for bad purposes.

Maybe Aspkin or GB can check the IP you `two` are logging in with.

You got it.


If you look at their recent activity. The first one logs off then about 10-20 minutes later, they use the other account.

Almost same statistics.

Check the ip addresses.

It is fine to express your opinion, no need to use additional "stealth" accounts, no one will suspend you. This is not eBay or Amazon

Historically man has always shown workarounds will be found for any topic that needs one.

Posting thoughts on a forum dedicated to stealth and attempting to stir the pot is counterproductive.

None of us are going to bite.
