hi, First of all: nice forum! Found it yesterday googling for my answers, and there is much useful information here! Too bad I didn't find my answer yet, so here it goes: I'm wondering what you should/can do when you make quite some money(couple 1000's usd/month) with warez(rapidshare/megaupload)? How can you use the money? They both pay with paypal, and some googl'ing learned me that you should declare the money you made with paypal to your taxservice. Won't they ask serious questions when (for example) some student is makeing 10k's of dollars extra a year? How do you explain where that money comes from? Just not declaring it doesn't seem to work either, paypal seems to have to report 10k+ transactions(split or all at once doesn't make a difference). Making multiple unvalidated account doesn't seem to work either, since they get blocked and keep asking for more details (cc/bank account/documents for identification etc). And if you would validate it using a vcc, where can you transfer the money too so you can use it? What can you do?
