Default Ebay ???????

I have never sold anything on ebay, in registering they are asking for my Social # and or checking acount #. Is this correct????? I have never given out this kind of info on line and always heard it was bad to give out.

Just looking for some info

Thanks

It's been a while but I thought all they needed was a valid cc number. I wouldn't have given them a ssn.

Rest assured they are asking you this just the same as if you were applying for a loan or something to protect FELLOW e-bay traders from scam artist who get a credit card number then post bogus ads ripping people off. They are legit and just as safe as your electronic records at your local bank,Smitty
