Can eBay trace different cell phone numbers to same address from phone call questions?

    So I want to call ebay from another member of my family's cell phone instead of mine that is listed on my ebay account or the landline house phone number listed as my home address on my account.

    I want to call them to ask them about how to list a strategy guide for a video game that I am selling that I got an mc999 for copyright violation.

    My idea is to use one of my competitors listings to use as an example to the eBay rep and tell them I received an mc999 for selling the same thing they are selling and how I can list it correctly to not get in trouble again.

    Will ebay be able to trace the phone number back to my home address and find out I was the one calling and suspend my account or draw more unneeded attention to my account?

    If the person owning the phone number provided your address when he signed the cell number contract then yes they can trace you. You can use services like whitepages to see what address comes out.

    Well ok yes they did do that, and I looked on whitepages and it just came up with a town near mine, it didn't come up with my address. Does that mean I am in the clear?

    Is it also sketchy to do this and will they probably look me up if I do call?
