Can they track down your real address/details if you're on your stealth anonymously?

    Lets say you use your stealth and get it to negative balance on a private proxy, can they find you and punish you, or will they be able to do nothing about it

    Depends on the amount you run into negativity! They won't hunt you for buttons but if you push your luck and go too far they may take steps to ensure finding you! :detective

    Exactly this, it is the amount that will determine if they are going to hound you or not.

    Also it only takes one mistake or error to lose your anonymity even on stealth accounts.

    Understandable, but how much negative balance will they break and find you at, since $100-500 is absolutely nothing to them, will they hunt me for 300?

    I doubt they will be calling the FBI, they will probably just pass it on to a Debt Collection agency who will spend less than $100(time and money) to collect it.

    The only problem will be if you have anything linking your stealth account to your real identity.

    If they really want to, they can track you down whenever they want.

    They will certainly file a report with the Police. They are required to report fraud by law. I think 20 bucks is the amount that is triggering action.

    It all depends on the negative balance that would be in your Paypal account.

    If the balance is high enough in the negative Ebay will take actions to find you no matter how anonymous you are they will try to find you and probably succeed in finding you.

    The most common way Ebay finds out who you really are is by getting a court order to look at the information on the bank account that is attached to your Paypal account.

    Once they have found you by looking at your bank account or by using other resources they use. Ebay will take legal actions against you and take you to court. Resulting in you owing alot of money and probably losing your freedom depending on how bad the crime was that you commited.
