    Hey All,

    Some of you may remember my thread about getting my permanently limited PayPal account back. Well the whole story involved my eBay account also being suspended.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/ebay/668316-i-fought-paypal-won.html

    Anyway, I contacted them more times than I remember via their live chat system and was always told it was not possible to reinstate my account and they gave me no hope for the future. I didn't give up and I always went back to the chat, maybe once of twice a month and was always polite with them even when declined. Today I went on and as usual was connected with the relevant department, he said he would check my account and I waited while expecting the standard no response from them but he came back to me and said he was happy to say he had reinstated my account and I was free to buy and sell again. Sure enough a message appeared in my ebay message stating same. The best part for me is that all of my feedback is still there. I find it amazing as I had really given up hope for ever getting it back. I should note that I was banned for selling product keys and ignoring their warnings. I was suspended for a short period several times until eventually got a permanent suspension in January 2014. 1 year and 8 months later the account is reinstated. Basically I am saying... Don't give up hope.

    This is the message they sent me:

    ''We're pleased to let you know that your account has been reinstated. You are now free to buy and sell on eBay.

    If you have any further queries or concerns, you can contact us from any eBay Help page.

    We hope your future experiences on eBay are pleasant and successful.

    Regards,

    eBay Trust & Safety''

    Have a great day all!

    eBay us has no chat option. eBay UK does.

    Thanks for the hope.. What was the reason your account was suspended originally?
