Hello All,

I have an old-long-ago-forgotten-about eBay account that I am trying to recover.

I remember my account ID but I forgot the password and the email account associated with it is extinct long ago. There is also an old PayPal account attached to it.

Is there a way for me to do this or do I need to contact eBay?

Hi Dale,

If you've forgotten the password and the email, I would think contacting eBay with the account name would be the only way. Trouble is, even with doing that you would need to somehow identify yourself as the account holder and not having either the password or the email address would make that extremely difficult.

Might be worth just opening a new account?
