I've been a buyer on Ebay for a while, and decided I might try to sell some things as well. As I was going through the registration process, I thought it was a little weird that they asked me for a credit card number to 'verify my identity', but armed with the knowledge that my credit card backs ME up, I gave it to them. The very next screen, Ebay asks for a checking account too! WTF??? Why the hell do they think they need all this personal financial info? I guess I won't be a seller on Ebay.
