They voiced varied reactions on social media to the image, which first appeared late last week.
David B wrote: “Love the email profile photo. Does she work at your customer service department. If so I have a few things I need sorting out.”
Liz Grogan said of the image: “Is that for real?? I mean, I’m sure she’s lovely, but not what I was expecting with an email about a baby product I want to buy.”
Tahinawrites wrote: “Is ebay being hacked?? I just received emails from ebay with an inappropriate profile picture?!! This is unacceptable. #ebay #disgusting.”
