    Malicious Software? What are they talking about??
    Steve and The eBay Partner Network Quality Team,

    I have no idea what you are talking about !!!! I do not use any kind of software, I buy targeted traffic from 2nd teir providers, which is ALLOWED by the terms of your program and is what I was approved for by the ebay team. I need to talk to a LIVE person about this right away, I followed all of the rules set forth in your terms and I have alot of money invested into EPN. I had faith that this was going to be a honest and viable buisness. This need to get resloved right away and I will
    be trying to find a phone number at the eBay corporate offices to talk to a live person as well, I have nothing to hide and I am willing to give you any information you feel is nessary to resolve this.

    I must say that my faith in this program and in ebay has been shaken, and I hope you will prove to me that this was just a mistake and a misunderstanding on your part.

    Steve Hartman, I have also left you a voicemail regarding this, I would like to see you personally involved in this.

    I know all of them except the last one. Checked the last one and ebay says:

    "which directs non-user initiated traffic to the site."

    The revisitors site says - The brand new Revisitors technology delivers thousands of targetted visitors to your website using full-page redirection. And it works great!

    I have no idea what that's all about but could that be the problem? Ebay says you need an affirmative action of an end user. Redirection is not that.

    "Basically, all we do is redirect the traffic coming from our network to your website."

    What url did you send traffic to at revisitors.com, yours or directly to an ePN link? If you were sending it directly to an ePN link... you lose.
