    Hey everyone,

    Just a quick question for my fellow Black Hatters! I'm in the midst of setting up a sales website hosted offshore. One of the main problems that I've been running into is how to accept payments from my clients? I am trying to keep the payments as anonymous as possible, and am going to be utilizing the Bitcoin (mainly) and Western Union. My main opponent though, is that most of my clients will want to be utilizing credit card payments. So, my question, is there any possible ways or merchant accounts that provide access to the payments of my customers anonymously? I have heard that maybe using a fake paypal account could work, but Paypal has been known to freeze accounts.

    What do yall think about this, can we put our heads together and figure something out? If anyone feels more comfortable, I'm open to PMs!

    Either just use a merchant account or a real Paypal. If what you're selling is legit and you use your real info, you shouldn't have a problem with Paypal.

    The product is research oriented and is more or less seen as a gray area, still highly legal though. I am just paranoid and want to tie off my loose ends before they are even able to spawn. I don't want to use paypal because I do not want to risk my funds getting frozen, and I do not want to give up my true identity (my downfall). That's why I'm curious to know if there are any other BH ways to receive CC payments (like paypal) that are more secure, and well, anonymous?
