    I have seen people suggest contacting live support and notifying them you have moved to the United States.

    I attempted this method just now

    To only find out they ask 1000 questions

    My data birth
    my address
    full name
    e-mail address
    original full number created with the account

    and that's as far has i got before giving up and now i bet the account will be flagged

    the next I was waiting for them to ask for a urine sample

    how are other people doing this ?

    I'm surprised they didnt just get to the point and ask for urine sample

    I didn't ask. I simply put in the ebay listing that I was in the United States, shipping from the US and where, and for my legit ads gave them my second Skype number so they could call me to see if I was English. For my other CS ads, I didn't care. Two folks called me for something I was really selling which I'm not supposed to sell via eBay (long story, but the product is legit - company is just nuts) and I told them that Ebay had screwed up - have no idea why they have me listed in New Delhi.

    It worked okay. I may be losing a few sales, but it's better than the hassle you sound like you're going through.

    Glad I didn't ask.

    Zaahn :D

    Pee in this cup and send it to us. We want to get a DNA sample in case you try to scam us out of our commissions.

    after like 2 hours of talking i got some info that might help

    they told me to get a ID verified, credit card attached, PayPal attach

    Anyone ever attach both the credit card and a ID verified to eBay accounts?


    Do they last longer

    I have no problem with indian accounts. I purchased 5 but I'm only using 1.

    I changed the address to a us based address Since they don't call to verify the phone number I just made up one but it has the right area code for the address I provided.

    Just make sure to let the accounts age a little before you start posting

    UPDATE:
    HAHAHA this is funny
    I posted many featured auctions all over ebay. Ebay suspended the account and sent an email that my (fake) account was hijacked. in order to restore it all I need to do is to update my password.

    sounds ez but it asks for zip code phone number and date of birth. I only remember the zip code and can't update my password to get access to my ebay and start selling again.

    I'll make sure to store this info on my computer for my next accounts

    Its their new security system they track the IP if you log in to your account and compare it with your location.

    It's a cookie based tracking system. I know because I once forgot to cleary cookies before logging into a different account from thesme ip area and was barred until I changed my password.

    Always remember to wipe your cookies before you do anything eB@y related and you'll stay in the game much longer.
