    They don´t suspend accounts for nothing...
    There must be some story behind that!
    It´s not like they randomly trolling people at the office.
    Sure it´s 100% legit?

    If you are sure, keep messaging and calling them.

    Best luck and hope you have your account back soon.

    Egay have been doing that a lot lately! Just send in some docs and you'll be all right.
    If it was a stealth account, I would reccommend forgetting it and creating a new one.

    I think they normally suspend seller accounts for a period of time: 1-3 months... maybe. Then you'll be able to activated by paying all your fees & unbalance. If it still doesn't work, send them an email.

    I find that 90% of all e-wallets, accounts at amazon/ebay, etc will be instantly suspended if they reach a threshold of "allowable" revenue in a day.
    This allowable revenue of course fluctuates based upon... nothing...

    There was a risk management study I worked years ago when I worked in a bulge bracket as part of my "training":
    Insurance company based insurance premiums (think car/health coverage) on credit rating
    Our job was to study the effects credit ratings had on default, or insurance calls

    The conclusion was actually that a lower credit rating (which was a much higher premium) resulted in slightly lower default rates and far fewer claims. Credit ratings in particular should be dissolved, as basing any type of information on them has (as was pointed out to me after this) historically be a horrible indicator of trustworthiness.
    It was more egregious in the case of health insurance though, as of course, most 20 somethings had no/poor credit, but were healthy and extremely low risk. Loans are equally as ridiculous as I found out. Banks, including mine, were not basing loans on down payment amounts (primarily as would make sense) but on 3 numbers in experian. It blew my mind, that they were offering 7% rates to people with 40% down on a home where the bank had the right to seize the equity in cases of default.
    I guarantee the US is one of the only countries that does this crap.

    Absolutely nothing large corporations do makes any kind of sense... the larger, the dumber, the less it makes sense, the less badly you should feel about constantly violating their ToS
    I feel nothing but disdain for ebay, amazon, buy.com, paypal, etc

    this is an easy answer:

    you sold fake flash drives on ebay.

    Ebay has been pissed about this for some time now, I sold some kingston flash drives on ebay back about 5 months ago and they got pissed off at me, this was before they got -really- fucked on it w/ returns/complaints.

    ie big expensive flashdrives are a bannable item.
