eBay following through on promise to clean up old identitiesPosted Sunday, June 3, 2012, at 12:47 PM
Several of my students are running into problems trying to get the name they want for their account and a big frustration was when they found it registered but never used in years. eBay promised a while back to start policing those dormant accounts and apparently they are doing just that.
A student from many years back sent me an e-mail she just received. She had apparently registered several names after my class and when she finally settled on one, she forgot about the others. This is understandable but frustrating to others.
Dear our-county-trading-post (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We noticed that you haven't signed in to your eBay account for quite some time, and we'd like to invite you back to buy and sell again. eBay's a great place to buy what you want, and sell what you have.
Unfortunately, since you haven't used your eBay account for a while, it will be deleted if you don't sign in within 30 days from the day this email was sent.
If you are not the account owner or the email address is no longer associated with this eBay account you do not need to contact us. We will delete this account in 30 days.
Great news for all those who are starting or would like to change their eBay i.d. to something else.
