  2. No, but as long as it's not a scam of some sort (which you can verify with *bay), I would love to do it if I had the time. Depends on when it is (during the day would be out for me). If it is real, it may mean they know they have screwed up with all their new rules and fees. Hopefully, it will make a difference.
  3. Gina -- I did not get one. Do you plan to participate? I hope so. I hope you are vocal about the frustrations sellers have with all the new *bay rules, especially feedback and what that new rule has lead too!
  4. I think I will participate if invited. And yes I will be very vocal!!

    Will keep everyone posted.
  5. YES! and a little something to help you ... just pretend they sold you a fake bbag! I've no doubt with that thought you will get what you want! Sic em Gro! lol
  6. Gina---It may be because you have the enhanced reporting tool?

    You can be the voice of tPF!
  7. Not sure Amour, I'm thinking this is leaning more towards selling.
  8. Wow - if this is legit then it's a fabulous opportunity for sellers to provide input on the detrimental effects of ebay's changes this past year or so. Can't wait to hear how it goes and your thoughts after if you qualify to participate.

    It'll be interesting to see if any others here also are extended an invite. I wonder how they determine who to send the initial invitation to - what the criteria is.....
  9. Gina has a tool??????? :wtf::wtf::wtf:

    menopausal sexist humour!!!!!!:roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao:

    SORRY......couldn't resist!

    Let them have it are the best when it comes to helping all us gals!!!!!

  10. talk about stupid DSR's where 100% sellers are beign kicked off ebay for ridiculous reasons
  11. and the unfairly imposed 30-day restrictions!
  12. Ok, I'm suspicious of anything that asks me for info or wants me to click on a link. I'd sure check with ebay. Also, you can right click the email, then click properties then details. It will show you exactly where the email originated. Scam email does not usually originate from where it says in the email's "From" line.
  13. LOL - isn't it funny that we think it is a scam (see my earlier post) because it is too hard to believe that *bay cares about its sellers anymore....
  14. HAHA

    Of course! I thought the same thing at first (another spammer or scammer)

    I checked this out and yes this is a legitimate email.
  15. I got one also and I don't have the enhanced reporting tool.
