For the record, Chris did not access the seller's information by any
backdoor means. The information is freely available once a transaction is
completed, which is how he got the info:

 

Any buyer or seller can request the contact information for the buyer or
seller after a transaction is complete.   That is what I did.   I did not
"hack" or use internal methods to acquire his information.   I clicked a
button on our website.

 

This is what you use to contact a buyer.. notice the bottom part:

 

http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/contact.html

 

To request your seller's contact information:

1.                  Click the Advanced search link at the top of most pages.

2.                 Click the Find contact information link in the Members
section on the left side of the page.

3.                 Enter the seller's user ID and item number.

4.                 Click the Search button.

 

Thought I'd set the record straight.

It's good to know that a members personal information is never released 

by unethical employees. Is this the way you would want your information 

broadcast? There are processes in place for deceptive sellers which 

should have been used. I know I won't be relying on eBays privacy policy 

any longer. I will forward your email to eBay along with my request for 

flushing my info thanks to you.
