Default call ebay to confirm my identity?

the last time i set up an account and i listed about 3 items to sell, ebay suspended the account until i sent them adequate proof of identity.
ebay calls me about 30 minutes after to confirm my identity which i did.

im using a stealth account and im sure the minute i list a few items, ( items under $10) im sure they will suspend me and give a notice to prove my identity.

should i just call them and give them the stealth info? address name ect?

Don't be proactive - if they call you, be prepared. Done.

This happens mostly on older accounts. I've sold on 10+ acct's recently with 0 fb and hardly any activity, not 1 of them got hit then I sold on sold on 3 7 mo old acct's with fb and all 3 got hit.

i had 2 accounts in the past where i got an email stating that they needed me to send them a bank account statement and some other form of i.d. i never did. i called ebay and told me i had to fax the info.
months ago i set up another account and the same thing happened except this time ebay called me about 30 minutes after i listed and asked me a few simple questions. the reinstated my account with no limits. mind you i got suspended anyway for being connected t another account.
this time i set up a stealth account and im sure i will be suspended the minute they call me. i hope they will call again to confirm and give them my new accounts stealth info.

I have to call ebay to, i think it is because my ip did a random change today, so they want me to call before i list an item. I am using stealth information And my phone number is a previous account, so i can not call them. I used google voice for free call forwarding.

Any advice? can i block my number when i call?

Problem fixed,

i waited until eBay normal business hours closed.

I tried to list something, it wouldnt let me and gave me an option to confirm my identity via live chat. I had to do this because my ip address changed. After chat ebay called me, all i had to do was tell them the name of the agent in the chat box. The end.

They just got me on my regular 2 year old account. why i dont know. They canceled my auctions and want me to send in a ID.

Mind, its a regular old personal account I buy with and sell some stuff.

Im not sending them anything and just for that im making 10 accounts

on live chat is more easier than phone ... while you speak with the live chat operator , somebody from ebay will call on the phone # you have on file with ebay and ask you the name of the operator.

if you verify your identity by phone , be prepared for a lot of questions like previous addresses , ssn , subdivision , birth date , previous names , etc etc ....i speak daily with ebay at phone and is like I speak with my best friends now ))))

ok i set up stealth and im ready to go! but i have the limit of 10 items or $500.
last time i set up an account (real info and not stealth) they suspended me, then called and confirmed my info. after that i had no limits on selling but my account was suspended cause i was linked anyway. this time its on the comp and i 'failed' the verification process so they want to call me. i answered the questions as best as i could for a stealth account.

now they want me to call them.
they didnt suspend the account but i am limited to a few items

ALL accounts have the 10 item/$500 limit a month until you've been selling for 90 days. You need to use multiple accounts, that's the best way around it.

If the account was made with real info you can call and try to get the limits raised, but I do not recommend it. If you answer incorrectly, you're very likely to be suspended.

The stupid *******s locked my account (Unauthorized Use)and was suppose to end my auctions but my auctions are still going and I am getting payments into my Paypal and I still have 1 auction live but cant access my account.

Last time I called they wanted me to send in my ID which I dont have a problem with because it is my real info but I just dont want to.

They wanted to call me at the phonenumber on file but it was a tracphone I no longer have

Great Ebay

Go figure

update: For some reason i can access my account now except I cant reply to emails or list auctions

Alright, I have an MC015 (verify info) suspension and they won't reply to my emails and ebay messages no matter what I do. If I can find a chat link after hours, I can talk to them to see if they'll help me, right? What are the questions like?

wait until after hours. they ask you some dumb random questions about your area. very basic. you will know the answer. the questions about where u live and all that.

nothing hard.

ok i got a new issue. ebay wants me to call them again to reverify my identity.
they gave me a toll free number to call with a security code.

icant call them because all my numbers are associated with other ebay accounts
i also read that 800 and 888 still see incoming calls even if u *67 or are a private listing
is this true?

WHAT??? That's crazy. Don't you have virtual numbers or tracfones or something?

Keep us posted because this verifying identity crap is happening all the time and i just don't know what to do.
