I'm a new eBay member since 15th December,2007.After I sign up, I start to sell Nike shoes online. This is the same action as other members. But on 27th December,2007, I received a letter from eBay, told me that my account has been suspended for the Section 9. I replied that letter, and someone who work for eBay told me that I need submit some of my documents to proof my eBay contact information is valid. I did it, I faxed the copy of my driver's licence, my bank statement, and a Request for Reinstatement of eBay account to eBay's Sydney Office.But they still told me that my account can not use for ever. Because the section 9. I have asked for the reason, because I still don't know which of my action lead to this happened. But no one tell me the detail about that till today. Actually, I think my request is really simple, now I do not want reopen my account anymore, I only want know the exactly reason for my account's suspension. I even can not tell my friends about why my account been suspended, because I really don't know. I felt deep upset to eBay. Before I used it, I've heard that is a safe, fair, dynamic marketplace, but now I know it is not the truth.

are you sure it was from ebay? i think i would have contacted ebay just to make sure...there are so many scams out there and by faxing them your banking information totally makes you open to identity theft!

Of course! I am very sure. The messages about my account's suspension all can find in my ebay account. And recently I have succeeded in asking eBay refund the listing fee they have charged from my credit card.

I was a seller on eBay for around a year but then left due to the fees and over all bull crap. I believe they should give you a answer to why your account was suspended but they probably won't. Personally if I were you I would just move on to another market site. I've really found in the end that eBay isn't worth the trouble.

You may want to try to sell your things on Craigslist.com. They do not charge any kind of listing fees and you are given your own account to check on items you have for sale. I have used this site before and was very happy with the results. Good Luck!

Well, so many people have different complain about eBay. But there is not only one online shopping website. So if you don't feel satisfied with eBay, just change to another one. Things always will getting better!

Wow! I had no idea things like this happened on Ebay! I will be doing more research before I put my items up for sale. My sister in law was selling some knock off handbags and other accessories at a brick and mortar store here in my town(I told her not to), and the business across the street reported her. She was shut down in less than 30 days even though only about 10% of her inventory was knock offs. If I were you I would make sure they did not THINK you were selling unlicensed merchandise. I am so sorry to hear that good people are being lumped together with the frauds. Keep persisting to get this cleared up!
