    Well, I just got rapped across the knuckles from eBay. See below:

    We’re writing to let you know that activity on your account may not be following an important eBay policy that requires all transactions and payments to be completed on eBay. We understand that you might not have known about these policies. We're sending you this notification to ensure that you can follow the policy going forward.

    Below are the details of where the activity occurred:
    [TDE_SECONDARY_ITEMS]Violation: "Hi. I don't know if you remember me but I made several purchases from you off eBay for several Joe Hill items. My computer has since crashed and I lost all my email contacts. I don't think eBay will let me include my email here but if you remember me, please contact me. Otherwise I'll just make purchases through here."




    Only transactions conducted on eBay can be covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee—a program that helps ensure everyone can buy on eBay with confidence. eBay has invested a great amount to help you find your perfect item and connect you with great sellers. We want to continue to partner with you in the fulfillment of your transactions.

    As part of our partnership with you, we're beta testing a way for a seller to share their phone number with buyers pre-sale. In this beta test, sellers can opt in to allow their buyers to call them with questions about the products. This will eliminate the need for you to share any contact information through member messages. We encourage sellers to use this new feature. Sellers can opt in by editing their buyer communications in their My eBay page.

    We encourage you to review the details of the policy to understand what you can and can’t do. Please take the next 3 days to make sure your buying and selling activities follow these guidelines. If they don't, your account(s) may be subject to a range of actions, including:
    - You won't be able to buy or list for up to 7 days.
    - You won't be able to send or receive messages with eBay members for 7 days unless you have a recent transaction.
    - If you're also a seller, then some or all of your fixed price listings will be hidden from search results for 7 days, and fees won't be refunded.

    If you have any questions, contact us:
    https://www.ebay.com/help/policies/p...policy?id=4272

    We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

    Thanks,

    eBay

    Please don't reply to this message. It was sent from an address that doesn't accept incoming email.

    I've always thought these eBay warnings are sort of funny in the way that eBay sends this out to protect their own profits they make from your selling and/or buying, but yet, eBay threatens to disable accounts therefore not making money from your selling and/or buying.

    And they were really on the ball since I sent that message to the seller over 3 weeks ago. He received the same message as well. I purchased a ton of Hill comics from him without eBay, but you're right, Ralph. They aren't worried about either of us being scammed, just their profits. I also find it funny they continue to allow 1000's of dollars to be earned with the sell of fake King sigs. Yet come after me for with might be the sale of a 5/6 dollar comic Those fake King sales bring in nice fees so............

    I too have suffered the wrath of ebay in the past.

    Ebay does their best to prevent the exchange of contact information, but their are ways around that.

    I will give you all a tip......it is my belief that ending a listing is a red flag for ebay....and they will investigate your communication prior to ending that listing. If you make a deal to sell outside of ebay.....DO NOT END YOUR LISTING....instead do something to make it so nobody will purchase it......double the price......revise your text to state your item stinks of cigarette smoke.........or change your listing to something else all together.

    I know ebay is providing a service......but I don't really feel bad about making the occasional deal outside of ebay....they get enough of my money on the legit sales I am involved in.

    Two things strike me funny about that. First a 7 day ban doesn't seem all that bad from a buyer perspective. Second, the comment they make about allowing buyers to call with questions. Seems an easy way for a buyer to call and make a off ebay deal.

    Very true, Mike. I also like the 3 days that gave me to think about what I have done

    I too have been put on hold for 7 days. They let me sell. because they can get money from it, and mine was for something really dumb.
    I've since cancelled many auctions on ebay I had listed, but so far so good.
    When you try to send your contact info to people, they are not fans of that.
    The funny part is so many people have messaged me THROUGH Ebay, "can you take less?", "Can I pay you outside of Ebay?", "Are you on the DT site?" etc etc--all real warnings to Ebay.

    I was just wondering why he hasn't posted anything lately, and I miss him.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I guess it's a bad time to give him negative rep then.
