Default Are SSD laptop hard drives high risk OR did I risk a new selling account

I listed 3 intel SSD laptop hard drives for a auction style listing this morning, then within 30 minutes all 3 listing were taken down. I called EB to try to verify my stealth account info but that account got suspended. I talked to some guy in T&S, I answered all the questions, non of the above, but no good that did me. Account got nailed.

The stealth account was within 2 days of being 1 month old. It has no buyer or sellers feedback, I thought listing a simple hard drive was low risk. But I thought wrong. My main theory is that my IP address is in Salt Lake City UT, my EB address is listed in Phoenix AZ, and my listed phone is listed in Las Vegas, NV. I used a new User Profile, checked the IP address, and blah blah stuff to make sure I wasn't putting up red flags.

The strange part was that, after I listed the second SSD hard drive, I got a message to verify my ID with calling them using my listed phone number or email. I choice the email cuz it was faster and simple.

I do know that flash memory devices are considered high risk but not SSD hard drives. I will try to list them when I get more feedback on some stealth account.

TL;DR, Are SSD laptop hard drives high risk?

has nothing to do with ip. certain categories are deemed high risk. you cant start out selling, be it 30 days or 300 days after account creation, with a high risk item. sell some worthless junk from goodwill first. sell it for a loss. it doesnt matter. you need the feedback from buyers so ebay will realize you arent some scammer and slam you every time you list something.

i have one account i listed a power cord on and it sold for .01. dont care if it costs me a $1 to ship. the feedback is worth it. another account i listed a cell phone screen protected and was killed within 15 minutes. im not calling, im just moving on. i suggest you do the same

I'd say you're probably selling too fast at first.
