eBay accounts mysteriously disappears without a trace


My brother’s eBay account mysteriously disappeared minutes ago. All records and profile are not available even password and username recovery is not returning any results. It would seem that the account was just hacked but because all traces were gone I would guess that it has something to do with eBay’s system. Twitter is buzzing also with others having their account closed.

Checking eBay Community Announcements, it seems that they are undergoing maintenance on April 14th and 15th.

April 13, 2011 | 08:35AM PST/PT

The eBay system will be undergoing general maintenance from approximately 23:00 PT (11pm) on Thursday, April 14th to 01:00 PT (1am) on Friday, April 15th. During this maintenance period, certain eBay site features may be intermittently unavailable or slow.

We await eBay’s response on this matter.

Update: It seems the account is now working fine again :) Solution is just to wait and refresh.
