Hello and thank you for contacting eBay Identity Confirmation Live Help. My name is Phyllis. I'll be happy to help you associate your computer with your eBay account today. Please give me a moment to review your account.

6:03:59 AM xxxxinternational

6:04:25 AM Phyllis
Aside from identity confirmation, do you have other concerns that you would like me to address?

6:04:47 AM xxxxinternational
why do you not have a simple thing like a customer service number???? Why is it I need to waste HOURS of my time waiting for help??

6:05:33 AM Phyllis
Just for your information, eBay is now noting which computers members use to access their accounts in order to protect them from unauthorized access. When an unrecognized computer is used for selling, we are prompting members to complete the Identity Confirmation process.

6:05:53 AM Phyllis
In order to help you, I need to verify your information. Could you please provide me with your name, address, and telephone number you have used to register with eBay? (Note that eBay would never ask you for sensitive information like passwords and social security numbers)

6:06:17 AM xxxxinternational

6:08:39 AM xxxxinternational

6:08:49 AM xxxxinternational
i have wasted HOURS of my time on this crap

6:09:56 AM Phyllis
Ordinarily, I would need to chat with the registered account owner in the Chat window to continue, but if you can verify the name, address, and telephone number, as well as another question that only the true account user would know, we can proceed.

6:10:09 AM xxxxinternational

6:10:28 AM Phyllis
We do not have a phone number to call.

6:10:31 AM xxxxinternational

6:11:10 AM Phyllis
I will now be asking you a question more specific than what you are normally asked in eBay. Please remember that eBay's verification of account ownership is set up to protect all member's account privacy.

6:11:21 AM xxxxinternational

6:27:08 AM Phyllis
Please understand we can only verify you through this chat and you'll need to pass the verification process before we can lift the restriction on your account.

6:27:46 AM xxxxinternational
so goddamn ask me what is necessary, do you see the long break in time between your incredible assistance???????

6:28:14 AM xxxxinternational
it took you 6 minutes to come up with that little tidbit of information

6:29:59 AM Phyllis
Do you have any immediate family members with an eBay account that has the same address as yours?

6:30:11 AM xxxxinternational
wtf is wrong with you?????? no i do not

6:30:19 AM Phyllis
Since we've been unable to verify you as the owner of this account, Ill need you to fax in ID in order to further assist you.

We will accept a copy of your driver's license or other government issued ID as verification of your identity. If the contact information on your ID does not match the contact information on file with eBay, we will also need a copy of a utility bill or other mailed document sent to the address on your eBay account.

6:30:41 AM xxxxinternational
your kidding right?????

6:31:29 AM Phyllis
No. Please fax this information to the following number: (801) 880-7137 ATTN:
Account Security

IMPORTANT : Please include a valid telephone number and your eBay User ID within your fax.

6:31:57 AM xxxxinternational
lol, u need MY number but you do shit for giving me one????????

6:32:05 AM xxxxinternational
ur ineptitude is staggering

6:32:30 AM Phyllis
Well, I can see here that you are not the ORIGINAL account owner. In order to proceed with your concern, I will need to speak to the registered account owner in the Chat window. If she is not available at this moment, we kindly ask you to return to Account Security Live Help when you are able to continue this process.

6:32:42 AM xxxxinternational
i am the ONLY owner

6:32:52 AM xxxxinternational
an employee set it up, it is MY goddamn company

6:33:23 AM Phyllis
The eBay account would only be able to be verified by the name that was originally used at creation, which you said was your employee. Because of this, we cannot verify this eBay account.

As members do move, address changes can be made, however the account holder's name cannot change and the account cannot be transferred from person to person.

6:33:23 AM xxxxinternational
xxxx was her name

6:33:55 AM xxxxinternational
ok, so you allow anyone to just use a corporate name then?

6:34:04 AM xxxxinternational
brilliant, so i will open one as eBay

6:34:40 AM xxxxinternational
hours of waiting this entire week to get to this incredible wisdom you share

6:36:13 AM xxxxinternational
1800-701-3229 geeee, the eBay community support phone number

6:36:41 AM Phyllis
Okay. Good thing you've found that number.

6:37:21 AM Phyllis
Yes, you can create a new eBay account if you like.

6:37:52 AM xxxxinternational
with MY company name??????????

6:39:16 AM xxxxinternational
wow, trick question?

6:40:15 AM Phyllis
No. Registered it with your full name.

6:40:33 AM xxxxinternational
i think customer service is staffed by the participants from the Special Olympics. Actually, that is not fair to say. I should apologize to the athletes that perform, they do not deserve to be referred to suctomer service people.

6:40:37 AM xxxxinternational
Go back to sleep.
