    In this topic: w w w [dot] blackhatworld[dot]com/blackhat-seo/making-money/19296-things-you-should-know-before-selling-replicas.html,
    the OP explains a safe way for selling replicas online, this involves opening a offshore hostingaccount and an offshore high risk Merchant account too process the payments made on your offshore hosted replica-''webshop''.

    Op suggests a offshore bank account for maximum anonimity.

    I looked this forum for answers but I couldnt find them, so I ask them in this topic.


    QUESTION: What do you need to open a offshore domain and merchants account? How do you register those accounts and still guarantee your anonimity.

    QUESTION: How much does it cost too open a merchant's account and offshore bank account?

    QUESTION: Is it neccesary to get the offshore bank account to keep anonymous when selling replicas at low quantity?

    QUESTION: How are you able too use your money for purchases?


    If so, any suggestions for banks? (In PM?) I heard Singapore was very good and anonymous.

    If I can get all the information I need, this topic could possible be a central topic where people with the same questions and problems I have with starting a replica bussiness.

    If you wish too keep your information unpublished for some reason, you can pm me.

    This isnt too avoid taxes, but too preserve anonimity. Thats clearly stated in my openingspost.

    Yes, I have read that topic. Contains much information indeed. But I cant find answers too my questions in those topics.

    Basically, what I am trying too find out, is how to be completely anonymous using a dropshipper and sites like ebay too sell the replicas.


    Scheme:

    You sell replicas on your site --> companies which own the actual trademark try too find you --> The money, however, is processed by a offshore payment-processor --> payment goes to offshore bank --> company can not find you.

    So, the thing I am trying too get too know here is:

    How much does such a construction (payment to offshore processor --> offshore bank) cost?

    And do you really need it when selling replicas, I really dont want companies sueing me because I do this? Is it feasable?

    Looking for someone reliable myself for offshore merchant account. No joy as of yet. Thing is most are burdened with high fees and comissions. Depends what your profit margin is if you can swallow the fees.
    Most brands will apply for dmca and remove your site from g-oogle. Then you start over again, unless your profiting in 6-7 figure sums.
