I think I have a problem, maybe someone could help me out of this
revoltin' predicament. I got on eBay at the URL above and tried to "buy
it now". I've never been on eBay as a buyer, so I tried to register.
Well, I filled in the blanks, and it said 'you're already registered
with eBay and Half.com. Just sign in.' Then I remembered last year I
bought a CD on half.com, and filled in some stuff, but I haven't a clue
about anything I did, much less the password. I checked the help, and
they said that I could use the secret question if I couldn't remember
the pwd, but I can't even remember the user ID I used. So it said I
could log in with my email address, but I could not find any clickable
item to take me to that procedure. I don't think I can create a whole
new user name and address, because it recognized my name, and I can't
lie about my name because I have to use it to validate my credit card.
Now what do I do?
