I got a message on eBay saying that my account was restricted. It said I could not buy or sell anything until further action. It told me to go to a link and it just brought me to customer service. Has this happened to anybody else? I have 72 hours from this morning to do what ever it wants me to do or my account will be permanently restricted.

What is your ebay username? I could look it up and see what ebay says is your issues. Is your feedback less that 10?

I never had it happen. But it sounds like they may just need you to verify some information? Being that this is a new account.

It looks like you have been scammed. I hope you did not open that link. Go to ebay and see if that emails in your ebay account.

It is not really "new" I made it this summer, bought about 10 things since September, and listed the Cub for sale a few days ago. Maybe it has something to do with me trying to sell something?

Did you get this in an email or when you went to the ebay site?

 

If by email, it could be a scam to get your user information......

EDIT: I wanted to blur some information.

The only thing I can see is that you might be underage. When You signed up did it say you must be 18 years old?

I get that same scam all the time.  They want you to give them your info as a "conformation" but that email did not come from Ebay.  Just delete it.  

BTW,  I haven't used Ebay in ten years and I still get them.   I figure if my account gets suspended that would be a good thing.  :poke:

Did your CC auction end or did you end it early?
