I've been selling since the start, I was in on the Alpha eBay, spoke to Pierre on several occasions, so I've been here the whole time.
I sell many things, but one of them is US Coins. Also I've fought for decades all the fakes on eBay. I used to have my own contact person in the President's office and I would feed him all the fakes. Submitted a lot of them to counterfeitreport.com. So imagine my surprise today when three auctions for US Silver coins were removed as "replicas".
I called them, big mistake. That led to some horrible person at eBay taking it upon himself to review ALL my over 200 auctions right now while he asked me to wait. Took over 30 minutes, he'd come back on every so often and assure me he was still working.
He said he didn't find anything wrong. I asked him why he took it upon himself to review all my auctions, he refused to say.
I asked to speak to someone in the policies department (or whatever it's called nowadays) to explain to them they took down my auctions in error. Of course he wouldn't let me talk to anyone else. He just kept re-reading something about "Replica bullions or coins".
You know, it just hurt me so much after all these years of fighting, and totally failing, to stop all the fakes on eBay, and here they are wrongfully convicting me of selling replicas.
I have 6 accounts I use, all linked and allowed. He checked the auctions of all of them. He treated me like I was a criminal, some damn punk kid in the Philippines. It's hurtful. So many times I've been through nightmares with eBay. I've won every case I've ever had. But this one today, even though it's a minor issue, it just hurt and it's very stressful. eBay = stressful and for no good reason. It's STILL a horribly run big corporation that doesn't care about the people, buyers, sellers and employees, at all. Not sure you can use any of this but I used to love eBay, and now I've come to truly hate eBay.
