    so i'm thinking about starting with AC and creating a few accounts, all routed over different emails to my paypal account. just one question (and yes, i DID search for an answer here, but didn't find anything remotely satisfying):

    what can/will AC actually do if they find out you're not from the US and submitted fake details, especially if you've been using multiple accounts and it's been going on for months (or even years)?

    now i'm not being paranoid - i'm just a newbie who wants to cover his bases. i don't care about my AC accounts banned and not getting paid in the process, i'm thinking about more serious implications like getting sued or my paypal acc frozen.

    1. They will most likely won't ever know that you're not a US citizen. I use a Lithuanian address for AC - they never complained.

    2. Paypal ban - unlikely, but even if they do, make a new one and buy a VCC from BHW members to verify it.

    3. Sue you? For a few hundred bucks? Lawyers are way more expensive.

    Don't worry.

    If they discover anything fishy at most will just ban and terminate your account, that's about all, unless its big time amount like DP CS
