Okay, I have several questions about this whole stealth eBay and PayPal thing that I haven't seen answered clearly in the many threads I've read on the subject. Here's my status: I was indefinitely suspended from an eBay selling account several years ago and would like to try selling on eBay again. My PayPal account is still functional and I have bought (on eBay and elsewhere) and sold (just elsewhere) numerous times since then. Both accounts have my real information, including name, street address, IP address and financial details. In addition, PayPal has my SSN. My questions are: Which is better, making a stealth account myself or buying one pre-made by someone else? If it's made by someone else, is it possible to buy a useful one from a reputable seller for ~$50 - 100? If I make it myself, can it be done in the same budget? If it's made by someone else, I assume it'd be in someone else's name. How do I reconcile that? Do I just have to assume that new identity in order to sell? I presume a new PayPal account will be necessary either way. How much new information do I have to use and how do I get it? Do I have to just make up details? I only have one real name, one real street address, one IP and so on. I have heard that eBay doesn't like public WiFi being used. Do I have to use a proxy / VPN? What's the difference and which is better? I can make new financial information (bank and debit card) but those accounts would have to use my real info, I presume. Would this link my old account to my new one and get me banned again? As for withdrawing, do I have to give PayPal my real info and SSN to do so? Sorry for all the newbie questions, but I'd just like to clear this up for good. I appreciate any help. Thanks.
