Bloody Paypal/ ebay. When it's good it's very very good and when it's bad it's bloody awful!

Trying to list some forks and they say I am denied because I am selling too much stuff! But I am clearly not as I've sold about one thing this year! They say I must get verified. But I already did that the last time something went wrong. So Then it says I must link the paypal verification to my ebay account. So I did.

And guess what. Still denied. I must get verified apparently.

Arrgghhhhh!

So I contact ebay and paypal and get blanket auto emails back explaining how to get verified!

Arrgghhhhhh!

So I write to them pleading for a human to get back in touch.

I get an email explaining how to get verified.

So I just spent the last ten minutes sitting in the passenger seat of a Porsche 911 GT3 round the nurburgring instead. I love you tube. And I feel (a little) better.

Maybe it's time to become a luddite and give up ebay.

I'm going for another spin.

Rant postponed rather than over (until the next email explaining how to get verified).

I've always thought I'd remake 'Falling Down' without the woossy Hollywood ending but instead vererating him for being a hero (kind of like Taxi Driver)

...(gets coat and quietly shuffles away before the powers that be arrive and bring the straight jacket!)
:oops:

whats amazing is as you reaserch into ebay and paypal - it scares you - they know websites you look and tons of other info about you - makes you want to go off the grid!

I have to wait till they phone me at home (I wonder if it will be a man or machine) to be re-verified. Thankfully I have two accounts ...

Link to the video? :)

You mean that's just it - I have to wait until god knows when to get re-verified after being verified a week!

Can't be arsed with it any more.

This is the best link - the full 9mins...

But this is genius just for the commentary - they are so lame - the co driver needs some american A.D.D drugs I think. Or a good old fashioned slap!

...and then there's the RUF 'yellow bird' 911 - oohhh slidey! Sounds great though.

ebay gives you no human contact, and the system just loops round itself, i can buy stuff off ebay but i cant sell due to them saying that my details are screwed up, i'm not really surpised as i no longer use the old e-mail address i had.
You can literally send them 100's of e-mails and they do nothing, ive done it.
in the end i asked them to delete my account 2 years ago as i was getting nowhere, they hav'nt

damn ebay :roll:
