So I understand the $20k rule, where after that amount I have to give my SSN and file taxes (W-9) To avoid this I opened a paypal in a foreign country (I already had a bank account) and I'm sending all my payments thru there and withdrawing to that bank account. For right now, I'm pretty small time (1-2K per month). My question is how do I avoid the computers detecting me and freezing my paypal. Should I setup another user on my computer that goes thru a foreign VPN (same country as paypal) and only login thru there, while still logging into ebay from the US as normal? Any advice would be appreciated Thanks!
