I purchased a very cheap scotch tape dispneser from councils_closeouts for just 99 cents. But when i went to pay for the item, this seller required that i give him my home phone number inorder to complete the transaction. My home number is a private number, and its that way for a good reason. I hate telephone sollicitors. I wrote the seller and kindly asked him to please just cancel the transaction because i dont give out my phone number, especially to someone online. The seller totally ignored my requests, so in order to avoid an unpaid item agaisnt me, i had to add my phone number to my shipping address. Anyone i have ever bought from knows, i always pay for whatever i buy IMMEDIATELY, like i wish others would do as well. Is this within Ebays rules to require your phone numer be givien? i really cant see that it would be, even Ebay doesnt have my private number on file. If i'm wrong then i stand corrected and admit i'm wrong, however i just cant see how this can be allowed. I think a person should be allowed to give out his phone number to who he wants to, and not anyone else.
