    How I got banned on ebay, yet used ebay for years with my real info.

    Ok, so around 2008, I had ~5 accounts. We can just call them account 1,2,3,4 and 5. On account 5, I used a fake name but used the same paypal for all 5 ebay. Account 5 got banned, so was account 1,2,3,4 (since linked by paypal).

    In 2010 I made 5 new accounts, account 6,7,8,9,10. They asked me for documents (license, bill, etc.) and I submitted it. Surprisingly, they did not link it to my old accounts. I've used these account for an year and half. Till, yet again, one of these new accounts (account 10) got banned (got banned because of activity of account 10, nothing to do with old accounts 1-5), so they banned the linked accounts also (accounts 6,7,8,9).


    I called ebay and asked if I can get my account 1 back and they gave it back to me. I sold few things, then they blocked the account and said I was linked to account 5 (which has fake info). And now they want documents (license, bill, etc.) to prove I am not the same name as account 5.


    Is ebay this stupid or are they trying to trick me? Even though i used same paypal for account 1-5, the ebay name on account 5 was fake and they said as long as my name isnt that person's i can sell again.

    I am not worried about being linked to the 2008 accounts. What concerns me is I already submitted documents in 2010, and if they link it to accounts 6,7,8,9,10, than I am blocked for good. I asked if the 2008 accounts were linked to any of the names in 2010 and they said no. The 2010 accounts have the same name (my real name) as the 2008 accounts. I really don't think it's linked because if it was, they would just tell me no your 2010 accounts are banned so u cant have these back.

    Are you sure that the request for information was actually from Ebay.

    Whichever Ebay you deal with . . . .

    I would give your latest Ebay account another try and see what happens, If that account is
    not accepted . . . then you know for sure where you stand with Ebay.

    You could try for a Stealth EBAY Account, Do a search on Big G for this . . .

    If at first you don't succeed . . .

    start again, the other accounts have all been banned, all you will do is chase your tail sending documents for ebay/paypal to then say bye bye

    start again with stealth and do not link any ebay/paypal accounts together, each account must be seperate

    LOL.

    Dude this is beyond creepy. First off, your user name is like mines. Second, i have very similar story (below if you are interested).

    They know accounts 1-10 and know all of it is yours. They just haven't admitted it. I don't know why everyone here is like when ebay asks for docs to not submit and go on stealth account. I'd recommend submitting docs, if they accept it, you can legally sell, if they dont...than go on stealth. A lot of people here go hiding in stealth, when they don't need to.






    MY STORY:
    I made first account around 2005, just to buy clothes and what not, but some times I never paid, got too many unpaid items and it was banned (account #1). Than every time I bought (mostly books for school), I'd make new account, buy, than forget about that account....next time I want to buy (usually few months after), I'd make new account and buy. Did this for about 20 accounts. All had the same information as account #1, just account #1 banned, accounts #2-20-ish were all good. Than I started selling, did the same thing...would make account to sell, than forget about it, than make a new account when I'd want to sell. did this for about ~10 accounts (so accounts 21-30 now). On 30th account I sold something counterfeit (I didn't know it was counterfeit...I bought it on ebay). This time they ban account #30, and also ban accounts #2-29 (account #1 already banned for unpaid). They deny my appeal, tell me to never sell again.

    6 months later I make new account #31 and sell on it for 3 months (selling limits are about $20k now), I ask if I can make a new account and they said yes, so I make account #32 to sell different things...3 months later I ask if I can make a new account and they said yes so now I make account #33....than they block all account 31-33...and says wants proof of merchandise, etc. My items are legit...had about 100+ feedback on accounts 31-33, so I send in receipt. Than they find out about accounts 1-29 (haha), and told me that they before not to sell, but this time he was nice, and said "OK, we'll give you account #30 since it's the oldest active account you have, but we are banning accounts 31 and 32, and keeping accounts 1-29 banned...and said only to use this one account". So, i've been using it since and staying good. close to 400+ positive, 100%, top rated, power seller,e tc.

    Funny thing is after they banned accounts 1-29...accounts 30-32 I used fake name, address and phone and after they found out it was me, they transferred my real information into my account haha
