    Made a stealth account using all the typical methods. I listed one thing as an auction. The price was run up to about $70. Then this morning I get the "information verification" message. Asking to link with another account, or call to give info. At this point Im like what the hell. So, I call. Dude says he cant find my name in the database as someone that exists at that address. Want SS# or a piece of mail. Obviously this account is trash so, just cut the losses and walk away. Heres my question...why did I get kicked to manual review so fast? Selling to quick? Not enough feedback?

    There are a few possible reasons.

    A. New account listing vero items that are name branded and high risk.
    B. Random check that is very rare but happens.

    You need to give your accounts time to age and get some feedback before selling like fire.
