RE: eBay.com breaches privacy policy

Dear Complaints.com,

eBay reset thousands of its clients Notification Preferences to the default settings.

This action by eBay subjects thousands of its cliets to unwanted spam and junk mail. eBay displays the TRUSTe trustmark.

eBay's action should disqualify eBay from the authorized right to display the TRUSTe symbol.

Please post a warning on your web site so the thousands of eBay users who are affected will be warned of eBay's breach of confidence.


Dennis Prout
