    Hello guys,
    I used to live in the UK but have moved to Malaysia. And I realize that my dad has an ebay account that he created 11 years ago but he has forgotten the password. Is it possible for me to recover it and sell stuff on ebay with my Malaysia ip address? Will this get me banned from ebay? I think I know how to recover it but havent recover it yet, scared that it will get that 11 years old account banned. :(
    thank you. :)

    Malaysian ip from a UK account will get you an MCxxx (where x is a random number) suspension. You need to use a UK ip, or start over from scratch.

    Call them and use the phone number that your dad associated with the account. Change the Address and you should be fine.

    I cant, it has been years since I have left the UK. I havent made any contact with my old friends in UK. Cant really trust them though. LOL.

    @furious george
    Yeah, I thought so. :( Can I use a proxy or vpn or something to recover the account? Will this make the account be suspended?

    @noobski
    I cant, I do not have the number my dad associated with the account, he changed the number as soon as we're here. Well, we cant use the uk phone number anyway at that time, thats why he throwed it away.

    Do not just risk it and get your account messed up. Proper steps need to be taken. First step is to get a UK IP address to
    operate the account on and I would suggest a UK VPS with remote desktop.
