Welcome To 1984: Account Terminated On "Guantanamo" eBay For Prepping

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Founder, Webmaster, & Editor, In5D.com

My ebay account was suspended for “suspicious activity”. As a buyer, I had 100% positive feedback and have never sold anything on eBay. I called them and asked why my account was terminated and they said they couldn’t specifically say why it was terminated but it was due to “suspicious activity”. I have made a few “prepper” purchases on ebay of junk silver, a couple survival books, an Infrared Night Vision Camcorder, a hand crank AM/FM/NOAA radio, Portable Solar Charger and a Yukon Ranger 5×42 Digital Night Vision Monocular. Most of my purchases were simple household items such as a few Himalayan salt lamps, metaphysical books, a couple bicycles, various headsets for In5D Radio, aromatherapy oil, some sports equipment, some guitar equipment, some items for my dog, clothing, etc..

Afterwards, I received this email:

Your account was suspended because it exhibits a risk to eBay and to its community. As eBay is an internet-based business, and its members are our customers, we have to carefully weigh the risks involved with allowing users on our site. From time to time, we find accounts which have a risk that no longer justifies a continuing relationship with eBay. When that happens we suspend these accounts and they are no longer able to be used for buying or selling.

We have determined that it is in our mutual best interest to part ways. We regret any frustration or inconvenience this matter may cause you.

For your account there is no appeal for this decision. From this point forward, in order to conduct business on the internet, you will have to find a different venue.

Thanks,

eBay

Your account was suspended because it exhibits a risk to eBay and to its community. As eBay is an internet-based business, and its members are our customers, we have to carefully weigh the risks involved with allowing users on our site. From time to time, we find accounts which have a risk that no longer justifies a continuing relationship with eBay. When that happens we suspend these accounts and they are no longer able to be used for buying or selling.

According to eBay, there are 3 ways an account can be suspended:

  • Non-payment of eBay fees
  • Not reimbursing us for a refund we made to your buyer
  • A serious violation of one of our rules and policies

As you can see, I had a 100% positive feedback on eBay:

I can only trace back my purchases for the past three years. All of my purchases were made immediately paid for with PayPal. Outside of the prepper items, they include:

After calling eBay to clarify this situation, I received the following email:

Thank you for contacting eBay.

While it would be easy to create a new account and continue shopping there, I won't. There are other options for buying and selling such as Amazon, Etsy, Craigslist, Alibaba, AliExpress, Bonanza, etc...None of the eBay sellers were banned, so that raises the question:  How is it possible to have suspicious buying activity from buying items that eBay allowed to be sold on their website?  NONE of the buyers have been terminated and are all currently active.  Why aren’t the SELLERS suspicious instead of the buyers?

If eBay has an issue with the items we buy from them, then why are sellers allowed  to sell them on their website?

Is it possible that government agencies are posing as eBay sellers in order to gather prepper names?

Since when is buying anything legally sold on eBay “illegal” in the United States?

In the end, the “suspicious activity” is not on the buyer… it’s on eBay.

Has anyone else experienced this?  Honestly, I have no idea what my buying “rights” are or what their user agreement is with eBay but if this is a violation of either, would you be interested in a class action lawsuit?

Comment below!

In5D Addendum:  I don’t buy anything with store issued card such as Walgreens, CVS, Winn Dixie, etc… because I don’t like how they track everything we buy.  I try to use cash as often as possible, so there is no tracking of purchases on my debit card.  I was recently at PetSmart and bought a few items for my dog.  The cashier asked me if I wanted a PetSmart card so I could get a couple of those items at the sale price.  I told her, “No thank you.  You don’t need to track what I buy for my dog” and paid full price for everything.

Welcome to 1984.

Sending you all infinite Love & Light,

Gregg
