Same thing happened to me with my cable listing. I am now selling gear on the competing site and will continue to do so.

I NEVER provide information about MY BANK to ANYONE including PayPal, yet, I manage to verify my account and my method is safer than credit card or in fact THE SAFEST.
Under mask of 'verifying your shipping address' they can get hold of your funds and that's not desirable at all! Your funds can only be controlled by YOU. Yes the buyer can claim misdelivery or wrong address sent to claim refund or do anyanyanything to get refund and scam you, but...
There are online banks that I care less about and that give you an online access account within one hour after you filled-out an application. This account information can be used for paypal or any eCommerce sites you’re trying to access. Their card isn’t free and has monthly or annual fee. If you only keep $0 balance you won’t be charged a penny and this card can never be negative. At the same time it will always be active.
Look into sites:
once you verify paypal account, you can sell here.
my work around for selling here is not to sell here at all and i'm not alone by far. it's pricey to post and prepayment needs to be done as well. after all, audiogon's profiles are not safe due to the amateur and unprofessional development crew.
the easiest thing to do is to get a free checking account and only fund it when you buy or sell something online. Once the balance gets to your un-comfort level, just withdrawl and put into your personal checking or savings account. Plus, I never leave a balance on Paypal over $50.00. Moving money in and out is quick and easy. I also have done many deals on USAudiomart,..... just bought something there last night.
