    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?

    When people claim to often Ebay and Paypal think they detect a customer that has this pattern and they ban it.

    You better use some other people in your family to open an account and use it to buy, but dont claim anymore.

    Can they link you by address because i was banned on my good account as an abusive buyer but then i made a new account with a random address and changed my shipping address at checkout.

    and it was going good but i guess it went down hill when i opened a case.

    That defeats the purpose of shopping on ebay i there isn't protection.

    I need the ability to have buyer protection,

    say at i run ino an issue and open a case.

    would ebay bann my account if it is with new info, name, address, ect

    Always have no less than 2 accounts while using ebay, that way if one gets banned you have another one. I was banned as a seller but it's no biggie because I've been buying for over 3 years now with my buyer account since my other one was banned.

    Lets be honest, if you have been abusing people on eBay, not only should you be banned from eBay for life, but the whole internet.

    You have to create an account with a different ip. As in tradebit, my ip baned because withdraw money after buying the product.

    But sometimes it happens baned throughout the country.
    Because a group of people who withdraw money after the product is given.

    But thats the thing your wrong about. I havent abused anyone unless you consider being defrauded over a product and opening a case to get your money back? Or receiving something in used condition that was described as new and wanting your money back.

    Let step away from that whole issue because at this point there is nothing i can do to get my money back except maybe file a chargeback.

    I believe that this is the dude who bought a gold coin and tried to scam the buyer by claiming that it's fake without returning the merchandise.

    You got banned because you tried to scam by not returning the merchandise while trying to get a refund, dude.

    If you need New Debit Card, New Address, New User Account, Variation of name, New Everything else for the account I doubt this is the place for getting these you would be probably better off if you go get them from the deep web.
