    So I lost an EB stealth account recently and I just started to look at my shelved stealth accounts and one of them I had an invoice for $5.38 , 6 months over due. I have no idea how I over looked this. I even had $90 in the PP account.... so stupid of me.

    And I do not set up auto pay via PP for EB for several reasons.

    Anyway, I paid it and with in minutes I am back with a $5K selling limit and good to go. I have read in some cases after you make the payment they may still not reinstate the account, but I guess $5 is not a big deal.

    Yippy.

    The last account I let sit like this for 6+ months I sold for a few weeks and the following month got an auto increase of $25K selling limit. I am hoping the same with this one. We'll see come August.

    Oh yeah, sometimes they don't reinstate the account. I had a legit account and owed them $140 in fees, paid them back, and they never re-instated the account. I started using stealth accounts from then on which seems like a worse option for them being that they used to have my social, address, etc. Now they got fake info for everything.

    LMAO!! Too funny, me too. I had a $123 BS buyer dispute, damn customer got the item, I even had a signature from UPS... and for some reason EB gave the money to them... when I logged in a month or so ago I saw the account suspended. I paid the fee a month later and never got reinstated. I have made so many stealth accounts since then I have lost track... if they would play fair I would have never gone stealth.

    I'm glad you paid the $5.38 you owed and you were able to get your account back.

    If you wouldn't have paid the balance Ebay would have hunted you down and tickled you!

    This is exactly the case and why so many go under the radar.
