Was This eBay Buyer’s Account Suspended for Prepping? Tags: Big Brother

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

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

 

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:

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?

British company sells ‘zombie-proof’ log cabin!

British company sells ‘zombie-proof’ log cabin

Survival can be yours for £69,995 – with free delivery and a '10-year anti-zombie guarantee'

The Telegraph By Rachel Jones, Social Media Content Editor ShortURL

Delivery to much of the UK is free - flamethrowers and water cannons are extra Photo: www.tigerlogcabins.com
 

If the prospect of a zombie apocalypse weighs heavy on your mind, British firm Tiger Log Cabins have just the product.

The firm are advertising ‘the world’s first’ zombie-proof log cabin – designed to withstand the bloodiest of zombie attacks.

The ZFC-1, or 'Zombie Fortification Cabin' in full, comes complete with a 10-year anti-zombie guarantee which promises to be strong and secure enough to stop any walking dead from getting inside.

It also boasts a barbed wire surround, an escape hatch, a storage unit to stow your chosen weaponry and a 360-degree vantage point to keep a close eye on impending zombie attackers.

Sold with the strapline ‘Get yours, before they get you!’ the cabin comes with a price tag of £69,995. VAT and delivery are included, but installation will set you back a further £12,995.00.

Prospective purchasers also have the option of buying add-ons, including a flame thrower (price on application), security cameras (£1,795.00) and a riot protection outfit (£2,495.00).

If you're suspicious this product may not be entirely legitimate, the guarantee small print probably won't help to convince you. It reads: "Please note - we require medical evidence of the presence of a real zombie should you wish to claim under the 10 year anti zombie guarantee".

Whether or not the company would actually honour an order for the zombie cabin remains to be seen, but there are already a number of reviews on their website from happy customers - and a disgruntled zombie.

We're not only country to be preoccupied with the threat of a zombie apocalypse. Last month Kansas declared October “Zombie preparedness month”.

Teacher Rips Teen Student’s Sweatshirt off in Front of Her Whole Class, Exposing Her Bra to Classmates

Teacher Rips Teen Student’s Sweatshirt off in Front of Her Whole Class, Exposing Her Bra to Classmates

Melissa Melton

You ever have that nightmare that you’re a teenager and you find yourself at school naked?

Remember how relieved you felt to wake up and find out it was just a nightmare?

Well, that nightmare came true last Thursday for Oregon teen Sara Rue at Salem’s Roberts Annex alternative high school.

Teacher Rips Teen Student’s Sweatshirt off in Front of Her Whole Class, Exposing Her Bra to Classmates

Rue told KATU News that she thought she was having a panic attack as the teacher was confronting another student on an unrelated matter. Rue got up to leave the classroom and remove herself from the stressful situation and the teacher began grabbing her aggressively to keep her in the room.

The teacher yanked Rue so hard, she pulled her to her knees and ripped her sweatshirt off, leaving her exposed down to her red bra in front of all of her shocked classmates.

On the video above, you can hear the other students gasping and Rue can be heard whimpering pitifully for them to please turn around and not look at her.

Via NY Daily News:

“She doesn’t even have any right to put her hands on me,” Rue told KPTV-TV while describing how her teacher, Carrie McCann, put her in a choke hold and dragged her back into the classroom.

“I never cried like that in my life,” Rue later told KGW-TV. “I could hear the embarrassment, too, in my crying.”

Yeah. You can hear it. Watch the video. Sounds like utter humiliation.

Rue wasn’t doing anything wrong but trying to remove herself from a situation that was sending her into a panic attack. If you have ever had a panic attack, you know this is the right thing to do. What kind of school is this that the teacher has the right to grab a student so aggressively that she rips her student’s shirt off?

The teacher Carrie McCann has been put on paid-administrative leave in the meantime while the school district “investigates,” so she not only gets to treat a student that way, she gets a paid vacation for doing so.

Investigates what? I’m not really sure, considering the video pretty much says it all. That lady got worked up confronting another student, then turned her aggression on a different student for no reason and took it to a place it shouldn’t have gone.

That teacher was supposed to be the adult here. Obviously she needs to grow the hell up, behave like an adult and get a new line of work, because she sucks at this one.

Oh, and apparently the Salem Police Department reviewed the footage briefly and found no crime had been committed…so if you are a teacher, you can grab a student just because the student is leaving the room, not just grab but aggressively grab that student so hard you pull her to the floor, and then rip the student’s shirt off and that’s…just fine?

That’s not, you know, assault or anything?

Think about it. If you are a parent in this country and you did that same exact thing to your child in a public place like that, you would be arrested and have your child removed by family services in a heartbeat.

Can you imagine being a teen girl who already gets so upset that you are prone to panic attacks in the first place, then when you try to deescalate the situation, your teacher grabs you and yanks on you so violently when you get upset that she throws you to the floor and exposes your bare body in front of your classmates? How do you go back to school and look at your fellow students in the face after that?

What if she was a girl who didn’t wear a bra? What then?

What the hell is going on in America’s schools? Why do students apparently lose all their rights whatsoever — even to their very own bodies — when they set foot on school property?
