eBay Shuts Down Seller Associated with Former Employer
eBay shut me down - delisted my items and my shop, including, they point out, any future stores I might open under any name (I assume they are tracking my IP address). They said it was because of an issue with store "xyz" (protecting the innocent here)...and that I need to write from that email to straighten it out.
"Xyz" was a store I opened for the company I used to work for over 2 years ago. The email I had there is long defunct.
I contacted a friend there who runs the store now. He assured me there are no violations or issues in that account. He also made sure my name was nowhere associated.
Three times I tried back and forth to explain I have nothing to do with the store they associate me with. The responses I get indicate they read my note, but again continue the same assertion. The insanity of it all evidently escapes them.
I ask if someone could call, as surely there would be no issue if I could explain this to a live person... but they seem to just want me to go away.
I have business with other marketplaces and retailers (who are easy to talk to :)... special shout out to Amazon and Wayfair) and so luckily this was more an annoyance than critical.
Nonetheless, I admit, it is upsetting to be wrongly accused.
In any event, worth sharing in case any one else has been through similar.
