Last night I received very good news from them. My account had been reinstated! My eBay account was unfortunately suspended in November last year, if I’m not mistaken. Since then, I couldn’t buy or sell anything on eBay! And I had so much fun shopping there too. =(
In order to reinstate your eBay account, you’d need to send eBay a copy of your driver’s license, a completed Request for Reinstatement form and one of the following:
- Copy of a recent credit card statement
- Copy of recent bank statement
- Copy of recent utility bill
So about two weeks ago, I sent them a copy of my driver’s license, the completed form and a copy of a recent utility bill. After reviewing my documents, they decided to reinstate my account.
It is advised that you do not open up a new eBay account after one has been suspended. It’s obvious, isn’t it? eBay is not that dumb, you know. They’ll somehow connect the new account with the suspended one and when they put two and two together, you’re doomed. You could be put on their blacklist, too.
Oh dear, I hope I won’t be blacklisted for getting suspended a second time. I thought I’d change my e-mail address since the one I’m using for my eBay keeps getting spam but then thought better of it. Instead, I listed out two items for sale and this morning, I logged into my e-mail to find that I’ve been suspended.
Next, I did a search on Google on second time eBay suspensions. I found a blog which said that an account can be suspended again if it uses the same e-mail address, home address, IP address, Paypal account and so on. Guess I should have changed the e-mail address after all.
But I was being careful! I didn’t want to change anything in case they got suspicious of my eBay activities. Not that there’s anything to be suspicious about! I just want to have a blast of a time there!
