hi all,joined up to ebay,had to give my bank card details,said it was only for security perposes.next thing i know £50 taken from my bank account.cant get in touch with them as you have to re-register,as my ebay account was blocked for some unknown reason.seems like fraud to me.so beware of ebay.
Hmm, I almost signed up to Ebay once, but didn't want to put my bank details in, so cancelled the sign up, Glad I did now. I do know loads of people who use the site though and have no problems at all.
I had an e-mail last week requesting my log in details which I obviously ignored and reported to their support. eBay will NEVER request information like this, including bank details, by e-mail. There is no doubt you signed up on a bogus site. I have been a very satified user of eBay for several years without any problem at all. If you go to click here which is the genuine UK site you can read up on their policies.
with ebay as a seller you certainly will be asked to provide details of a debit or credit card account - for obvious reasons.
If you are wary of providing the details there is an option to provide an alternative email address instead, but ebay will only accept an address provided by an ISP (or by a company or educational establishment) - no hotmail or other such addresses will do.
At no time does ebay debit your card without your consent, and I suggest that you contact your bank immediately.
If you probe deep enough into the admin side of eBay and their terms and conditions plus facts and answers section, you should find the way of solving many problems.The only restriction that I find, is their limitation on fraud.
