Have you ever tried to contact Customer ‘service’ at Ebay? If so, then you will be as frustrated as I am. Ebay makes it VERY difficult to contact them. Yes, there is a ‘help & contact’ section, but this will merely lead you to suggested answers. But try and find an email address for Ebay and you will get very annoyed. They have made it deliberately difficult for you to contact them. I merely wanted to contact Ebay to ask about a refund, but they do not publish an email address. How crazy is that?? What reputable company does not want you to contact them??? Either way it has taught me a lesson. If they are not prepared to publish and email address or put an online form for you to use, then they do not deserve trade. It seems to be a trend with many companies now, making it very difficult or impossible for you to contact them by email. They are happy enough to take your money, and make it very easy to pay, but when you want to contact them, that is a different matter. Good customer service can actually be profitable for a company, whereas bad customer service actually drives customers away. So why does Ebay make it so difficult to contact them by email???

Sharing borders with 6 countries, Afghanistan (population 32 million) became independent from the UK in 1919. Pashto (a form of Persian) and Dari are the two official languages. Kandahar was the original capital, before it was moved to Kabul. The national game is not football, but buzkashi, or goat grabbing, where people in two teams on horseback try to catch a goat. Kite flying is also a popular sport. The highest mountain, Nowshak, rises to 7485m. It is the world’s largest producer of opium, and since the US occupation which started in 2001, opium production has been on the rise. It is said to also be the largest producer of cannabis in the world.
