    Ebay removed my listing fucked me, screwed me, and Im fucking sick of it. My question is I just shipped out some items before Ebay fucking removed it, along with the ones I already sold so I had to go through Paypal. This is on my stealth account mind you. If I just withdraw all my money, unlink my bank account (which is my actual bank account) and just never use that Paypal again, what happens if someone tries to return the item? (They shouldn't but if they do) Will Paypal be able to track me down or am I scott free?

    Same happened with me over the weekend. I had to go through my PayPal transactions to find the email and address of my customers as ebay had deleted all the sales data

    I don't think you'll be able to remove a bank account that's already linked after a sale has been completed or in progress. PayPal won't let you do that. Example I got some investment money last summer and ended up screwing myself over, guy wanted a refund and I thought...

    "What if I just take off my bank information?"

    Won't work. It'll probably just turn in to a PayPal dispute case type thing. You'll be sending emails back and forth with the buyer(s) -- just explain your situation honestly and hope PayPal votes in your favor. Ask for the buyers phone # and maybe call them and give them a sob story like you're giving here. They'll probably understand.

    No, it was the company itself who fucked me.

    dude, eBay doesn't sit around and go "yeah this random bungholiO character, let's just fuck with him" There's probably a reason why they did that to your account. Even if they close your account for seller performance issues, they will let you close out open orders.

    Yeah eBay are bad at banning people but they only do it for below selling performance or they found out about your stealth accounts.
    Amazon on the other hand........
    Don't let it get you down, pick yourself up and start another account.

    This is not an attitude to be maintained on ebay. I have had over 200 accounts shut down, 100s of listings removed and I keep learning everyday. The money to be made solely from ebay are sufficient enough to get you to 1% of the population. I am very grateful to have ever been exposed to it

    Relax dude, eBay is not not scum. I think, you disobey any condition of them due to which they did it with you. I recommend you to try Best Buy and Amazon.
