E-bay Offers Little or No Privacy

Brags Sullivan (eBay.com’s director of law enforcement and compliance, Joseph Sullivan,) “If you are a law-enforcement officer, all you have to do is send us a fax with a request for information, and ask about the person behind the seller’s identity number, and we will provide you with his name, address, sales history and other details–all without having to produce a court order.”

Remember: eBay also owns PayPal.
