Contact information:

Ebay suspended my account for 1 year for Shill Bidding. I was selling an item, and my sister-in-law who lives in my house and uses my wireless network placed a couple of bids on my stuff (without my knowledge). She knew I was trying to make a profit, and she also knew if I had known she wanted to buy it for my Brother i would have sold it to her for cost. So she placed a couple bids but didnt win the item. Ebay informed me I was being suspended for 1 year for Shill Bidding (bidding up the price of an item). I offered proof of the situation both on paper (with IDs) and also offered verbal verification but I was still Suspended.

After alot of pointless emails to the idiots at Ebay I gave up. I decided to accept my punishment for not knowing the rules.

I was just informed that I will not be reinstated after the 1 year like I was told many times. No explanation of this ruling... just a one line email.

They suspended me cuz someone allegedly hacked me and tried to look at or buy porn..huh?
Can't prove it wasn't me. And so what? I checked thee adult box when i signed up.

Plus i had a seller sell me an old-rotten- dog had lived on sweater , was supposed to be new or like new.

It stunk and was old and full of animal hair, i wrote the woman, so she bad mouthed me in feedback, calling me names and a liar and kept track of all my activities and kept saying rotten things about me to others... she was lying but tho i could prove it, ebay just kept allowing it and refused to remove her salanderous comments.

There is a forum I found on the internet that is free, and helps with Ebay, PayPal, business and the law. Just post any question, the experts will answer it if it has not already been answered!

The forum has a lot of expert advice on it. http://www.modeeworld.com/forums I found advice there about how to avoid EBAY suspensions, get past PayPal limitations, also lots of detailed help on creating your own business, getting past trademark violations, VERO and lots more. Plus general advice on how best to sell on EBAY, what sells the best, how to get the best price for your product, really everything related to EBAY and internet business.

Also advice about how EBAY really works and how PayPal really works. The inside scoop.

Beautiful forum. I was made a moderator of the forum and I love it!
