    Hi guys,
    Dunno if this is the right section, sorry if I have posted it on the wrong section.
    Ok so here it is. I got banned from flippa for shill bidding though there is something else happened and its a huge story. I asked one of my buyer who became a friend later to write listing copy for me. since he once bought from me, i was banned for shill bidding. At one point they stopped reply and dint listen to my explanation.
    Ok, now here is the thing.. If I make another account, I will definately get banned again, I am wondering what are the data that they gather to link accounts apart from IP and cookies.. LF suggestions/help. Thanks in advance

    I saw a lot sellers linked to different accounts even they are banned or suspended.

    Thanks for the reply..
    I know of a few things they actually look into in linking different profiles and they are IP ( np I have dynamic ip), cookies ( I clear them) I was asked to change the browser and wondering what sort of my computer information can they get..
    Can they actually get info likecomputer name or my username or something like that?
    I cleared cookies and made a new account and i was banned rightaway.. no questions.. reasoned duplicate account..
    I am just wondering if there is a way to get around this as they are the only one who actually do flipping decently.
    I am relying on this.. if I can find out what is that making them link accounts, that would be helpful..
    thnx :angel10:

    I wonder if you apologised and admitted your mistakes if they would let you back in? Try it, nothing to lose right? and you may be surprised by the outcome. Most people don't like excuses, even if it's real.

    Hi this is an easy Fix.

    Option 1. Just create another acct and list your sites from your nearest coffee shop just to be 100% sure monitor the sales from home as anyone.

    Option 2
    . get a vpn service and use it to log in to your fake accts..

    Extra Tip: Enjoy the coffee ;)

    Tips from me: you can not use same email payment (if you are using paypal) in your new account.
    and it's work!

    Thanks for the replies.
    Fathom : dunno what i should agree.. would be lame if I actually accept something without doing it.. also they will either way show that possible links to link in my profile which is a majore rep ruining thing..
    anyways guess i will just list it from the nearest cafe.. till i buy a new computer :)
    and ye thought of using VPS too.
    thanks for the idea guys
