I got an email today saying not only was my account suspended, but also any negative or neutral feedback I have left in the past year PLUS any star rating that wasn't 5 was going to be deleted from the seller's history.

Why?

Because in the past 3 months I have had 4 Buyer Protection Claims (out of a literal 67 purchases made in that timeframe, which brought my grand total to 5 claims between now and 2002 when I joined eBay!).

2 items I purchased were just flat out never sent to me, and 2 other items were absolutely counterfeit. Because I didn't just let people steal my money and got refunds, I'm being punished and these sellers are getting away with it scott free!

Way to keep those seller ratings up, eBay!
