Request to Cancel my eBay Fees and Reactivate my eBay Account
I am writing to you to cancel my eBay fees and to reactivate my ebay account.
I have been an eBay member for many years and late last year, my account was suspended for non-payment of item insertion fees. I would like to let you know that it was NOT my fault that this happened.
At this point I would like to give you some details about my accout :
My eBay user name (user id) is: ckajua
Ebay Member since 08/10/2001
I currently have a feedback score of 528, with 100% positive feedback; and I pride myself for that accomplishment.
The closed account-id is: E35944056001 for $1,614.88 in fees.
My problems started when I lost my job last spring and was looking for a way to make money working from home. Little did I know that I was going to become a victim of a well planned scam involving two companies, one of which is clearly affiliated with EBAY, Inc.!
I responded to an ad that said I could make money working from home. The ad, by a company called Auction Work At Home said: Become an Auction Listing Specialist! The ad talked about how I could make up to $195.00 a day working only 60 minutes each day that is part-time! They claimed that the method was proven and guaranteed! You can read the whole ad yourself at the following site:
Payment was guaranteed at $13.00 per listing. According to this ad I could make anywhere from $16,700.00/year to $100,620/year depending on my efforts. So I put in lots of effort working day and night, listing hundreds of items on eBay! In fact, I listed over 500 items in a very short time, in less than a month. But my financial dream soon turmed into a financial nightmare as I realised that as soon as Auction Work At Home received my enrollment fee, close to $200.00, they used the bait and switch tactic to send me to an eBay affiliate called DOBA, Inc. (doba.com), tel: 1-877-321-3622 / 1-866-417-3016, where I was now actually selling' on eBay instead of being a listing specialist'. There is a difference! Most of the items I listed DID NOT SELL! Even the ones that sold were either sold at a loss or refunds were requested because of wrong item descriptions on the doba.com website. I made NO MONEY with this program ; instead I ended up with unbearable and unpayable listing fees on eBay, Inc, disappointment, anger, frustrations and heartbreak!
Regarding Auction Work At Home and Doba, on 10/05/2008, I talked to:
Jessica of eBay, Inc. who answered my original/first call ; and was transferred to Lisa (an eBay, Inc. Supervisor). I also talked to Tom (eBay, Inc. Customer Support). Everyone of them was very courteous and assured me that the matter would be resolved satisfactorily.
I suggest EBAY, Inc. should discontinue their affiliation with DOBA, Inc. (doba.com) and Auction Work At Home which are tarnishing your company's reputation with illegal practices fradulent/false advertizing.
Therefore, please, cancel my listing fees and reactivate my account. If you decide NOT to cancel my listing fees and NOT to reactivate my account, I would eBay to sue me so that I can appear in court very SOON with eBay, Inc., Auction Work At Home and DOBA, Inc. (doba.com) legal representatives in order to have the matter resolved by a jury and a judge! I do not currently have a lawyer for this matter, but I will apply for legal assistance from the government in order to keep my account clean.
I trust you will do the right thing.
