E- bay and Paypal have been contacted by a number of LAs and are helpful.

 

For E Bay use DPA, for Pay Pal use SSFA. Advice from other LAs re ebay is “make sure you ask the right question” and “They will supply a full listing of trades, which has proved extremely useful.” You also don't need to supply user name; they can search by name and address and can supply a list of users registered to a particular address.”
