eBay had problems with their Category listing pages on 5 Apr reported

eBay conducted regularly scheduled maintenance on Fri 7 Apr
between 01:00 PT and 05:00 PT

Along with other intermittent problems and slow downs over the
last week, the eBay fraud prevention and insurance claim filing
system was available only intermittently during the past two days.
As of 17:39 on 6 Apr it was completely unavailable. If you tried
to file a fraud prevention or insurance form and were unable to,
submit your claim when the form is again available. If your auction
ended 60 days before the time the claim form was down (Tuesday,
4 Apr until they notify you that it is back up) you will not be able
to use the online form even after the fraud form becomes available.
Users in this situation need to contact safeh-@e... for
filing instructions.
