    I have a couple of Ebay accounts, both legitimate just held under 2 names within my household.

    I've heard users are using stealth accounts to sell intangible goods/services as there's a risk of account termination.

    I was just using one of my personal accounts to sell virtual goods, however recently had my listings removed and a warning. Therefore I'm considering setting up a stealth.

    I know how to set up a stealth account, however my question today is:

    What would the consequences be of not paying listing and final value fees on a stealth account? Would I merely have the cyber police (lol) chasing after me with block and ban buttons, or would it be more serious?

    If you dont pay your eBay fees you will lose your account its that cut and dry.

    As far as PayPal coming after you they will if you owe them enough money.

    The most common way eBay finds out who you really are is by getting a court order to look at the information on the bank account that is attached to your PayPal account.

    Once they have found you by looking at your bank account or by using other resources they use. eBay will take legal actions against you and take you to court. Resulting in your wages being garnished or even going to prison.

    PayPal will only take those actions against you if you owe them enough money though.
