    2 ebay stealth accounts got restricted around the same time. Had 1 account open for 2 month. The new 1 got restricted first, then the older 1 got restricted until identity verification is faxed in ID, Utility bills et. The 1st account got restricted after I listed only 1 item. The older account I had already sold a few items not it is restricted. I followed the process to create new stealth. All new info, however, I did use the same bank account for pay pal that I used before on a closed ebay account.

    Is it possible that ebay can link the closed account by using it in the new pay pal account? I've read that no one can see the account holders name. The pay pal act has all new info just linked the same bank accout as the one used in the prevously closed ebay acct?

    Any ideas what to do about this? 2 new accounts restricted and I can't provide docs. Can the old ebay account be linked to the new account by using the same bank account with the new pay pal?

    Yes if you have used the same bank account then you will link it which you have done to your stealth you will be banned now to sell on them I would just create new stealth account keep everything different and IP remember and you will be fine its very easy also you can buy VCC and VBA. And just buy phone number sim card.

    new accounts that sell usually get restricted with a temporary mc999

    Doesnt mean you did anything wrong, call them and they will ask you 3 simples questions of what your selling goals, ask if your dropshipping, when you plan on shipping. Always choose the answers you know ebay wants to hear, then they will reinstate that account

    but if you used the same paypal then theres no hope, you got linked
    You gotta learn some stealth ;)

    They will ask you questions about your identity when you call in to request higher limits. I just did it yesterday - and they were asking me a bunch of questions regarding the name and and "does your ss# have an 8 and 2 in it"..."does one of your past addresses include G. St"..."have you ever attended one of these colleges"....stuff like that... I was using a friend's address....of course they were asking me questions about her husband in which I did not know...so my new account got restricted....

    Are they asking everyone those questions?

    That is exactly why no one should ever use friends/family info unless you are sure they will never use ebay, because you can get them banned for life like above if you aren't careful. And that is also why it's never a good idea to call in to increase limits (best to let increases happen naturally by being a good seller, or create multiple stealths). Yes, 90% of the time they will check the name on your account + the listed address and use it to pull up public records and ask questions like those.

    Reusing a bank account is a bad idea. ALL information must be different because ebay can use anything and everything from an old account to track you. You would need a new bank account for each stealth account you create. Paypal cannot see the name on your bank account unless they take money from it (i.e. you owe seller fees and they use your bank account to pay them). But, of course they can see the account number (since you gave it to them when you added it). They keep records even among banned accounts. Again, everything needs to be completely different.

    You really have to start over. Mixing and matching banned accounts with working accounts will not end well because you won't get very far.
