My wife who was no better informed than anyone else, bid on all the gold bangles, that is 6 out of 15 items listed (40%).
Ebay notified me that they have suspended my account for "shill bidding" which involves phony bids.
There was no thought other than to place genuine bids on the gold items only.
The punch line is that they have seen fit to artbitrarily confiscate ALL the listing fees including those on items not bid on by my wife.
They have simply confiscated (stolen) the listing fees of 60% of the items.
