    Hello, Need your Help.

    I have and ebay seller account, it got restricted as I had an open dispute in Paypal and Ebay, one seller from China didn't send one item, I opened dispute and now my account got restricted as I was selling couple of items.

    My real issue is, I changed my shipping address to a U.S shpping address, a fake one as I experience as a International seller account, I was unable to sell any single item. When I changed to U.S shipping address, I made almost 10 sales and successfully shipped using DropShipping Method.

    Now as I got account restricted, I chatted ebay live support and they are requesting me to fax 'Proof of address and/or phone bill along Photo identification ID such as Driving Licence etc. I can't send it as I changed the address to Temp USA address, If I will send my ID and address proof from here where I am, they probbaly gonna close my account ??.

    Need your advise please, how to deal with this situation? any advise would be highly appreciated. thanks alot in advance.

    Well, it's quite clear that they are doing this because they think you changed your address. I mean, did you really move from an overseas country to a US based country overnight and keep selling without any short break to allow time to move, etc. They might be thinking of these things.

    Not the mention, your IP (if you are not masking it) is giving away your real location, so they are likely able to detect this and tell right away. Even if you had a real ID then they still might be confused as to why their is an overseas IP logging in all of the time...

    Best bet (from what I can think of right now) is send in some utilities with photoshopped details to suit your needs. They're not a bank, they're just eBay.

    But all in all, you could have done this a bit better, just 'switching' your address without actually thinking about all bases isn't the best move.

    Goodluck!

    ^^ couldn't have said it better


    unfortunately looks like you're in a big bind, as they already have too much evidence against you. At this point I'd probably scrap that account and create a new one and think hard about your actions before you take them in the future

    good luck
