Do invoices for eBay need to be from manufacturer / distributor? Change name on cc stmt?

    So, I'm going through a MC011 restriction on a 15 year old totally legit account.

    They want driver's license, recent credit card statement, utility bill, and purchase invoices.

    It's a legit account, so I can provide my real driver's license.

    I moved back in with a parent earlier this year, and have no actual credit cards - only checking accounts and debit cards. Will it work to scan my parent's credit card statement and utility bill, Photoshop the name using the exact same font, print it, fold it as appropriate, and rescan it? Or, is that not going to fly -- are they going to check in (semi-)public databases, or even a soft credit pull? Are they going to see that I don't have these active accounts? Or, do they not check that far?

    My actual suppliers are going to be companies eBay has never heard of. If I send them these invoices, are they going to take them? Or, do I need to "somehow" provide invoices from the actual manufacturer or their distributors? It's a product that has never been counterfeited. It's nothing high risk like this, but it would be like worrying about counterfeit Intel i7 CPU's. They're either going to work, and you know they're authentic, or they aren't going to work, and you know they'd be fake. (There's only 1-2 companies that could make fake ones that would pass even modest end user scrutiny.)
