    This has written; Yea sure it's your sisters account written all over it.

    My Jr. VIP ran out and I would post this in the Amazon section but it's not available to me anymore. So if the talk is not allowed then i'm sorry.

    Anyway, I got banned with Amazon a couple years ago. I signed up for it again but with my sister's name and SSN. I have her complete permission and she no longer lives in the US. She is a citizen of Spain now. When I signed up I used my bank and put in my info for it and I was getting a $470 payment. Nothing came through to my bank. I called my bank a couple days after they sent payment just in case their system is slow and my bank said nothing has gone through or is in the process of going through.

    I sent an email to Amazon support and they said wait 15 days and I should get something. I changed the direct deposit info to my new bank and well it's been 17 business days and nothing. It's also time for another payment of $1500 to go through and yet again I got nothing. I have rent and bills to pay. Luckily my roommates who also do IM understand and are patient have let me slide for a month. I don't want to be a burden on them anymore. The only problem I see is the account being in my sisters name and it's depositing money into a bank that has my name. Surely red flags for the bank goes up right? Wouldn't I have heard that from the banker though? I am contemplating ditching direct deposit and just do the flat check and do it the old way. I'll take the $15 processing fee, it's not a big deal. One thing that boggles me is under the payment method option check it says make payable to someone else. Which would be me otherwise it would be under my sisters name. How is that okay and depositing into my account not. That is if I am right about my assumption.

    Any way I appreciate the help.

    Shouldn't be a problem. I have several transactions being deposited into my bank account from an alias every week. I would think that should be across the board.

    as long as you have the password to the account, and then you have the checking account number / routing number, I would think you should be able to deposit into any account you want. Not like someone would call the police if they saw all your commission in their account one morning :)

    Thanks you two. I just don't get why it's not working. I have tried 2 different banks. I have gotten paid direct deposit before and never had an issue but with Amazon it just isn't working. They don't even have a test direct deposit like a lot of companies have.
