Ok so long story short, ebay banned me for opening a case because the item wasnt as described. I checked my account I had been a member for over 2 years. I had a total of 103 purchases. With 4 total disputes I bought a nice piece of jewelry of ebay. I became skeptical of it being fake. I did some test. The gold was fake. I opened up a case. Ebay originally found the case in my favor, they even sent me out a courtesy shipping return label. I shipped the jewelry back using it. Then about 3 days later I checked the status of my claim. Ebay pulled a 180 and reversed their original descision and awarded the seller the case. Meaning I lost. Keep in mind I already sent back the item. They suspended my account also. They said I had a pattern of buying and requesting refunds. SO I guess they automatically found the case in the sellers favor once this happens. I cut my loses so on. But I still would like to use ebay. It is easier to shop and buy stuff for my business online. It is easier to keep track of receipts for tax purposes also. ................. My question How do I get back onto ebay as a buyer and be eligible for Ebay Buyer Protection/Paypal Buyer Protection? I buy some expensive stuff here and there for resale and for my business, but every now and then you run into problems and want to make sure im covered. Things I need -Variation of my name so I can still sign for packages -New Address (not a problem, im just going to use a forclosed homes address and in the middle of shipment redriect the package to my address) -New Ip -New User Account -New Debit Card -New Everything else for the account. Can I buy the same items I did on my last account that got suspended? Do I even need to use a variation of my name? My name is kind of common. Will I be elligible for buyer protection incase something goes south? Will I appear as a brand new user to ebay if I do the following?
