    I am operating a eBay business using a close friends identity (with their permission, of course!). This is a relatively new arrangement and the accounts are less than 3 months old with not-so-good selling limits. I opened 3 eBay accounts under the same name to try to get around this. Let us call them accounts 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

    Anyway, something triggered an account review on account 3 and the account was suspended. I contacted eBay via email to try to have the suspension lifted and they asked for ID verification, which was promptly provided. Despite eBay advising that the appeal would take 24 - 72 hours, it has now been a little over 2 weeks and no response from eBay.

    The other two accounts seem fine, but I have not listed any items on them as of yet for fear of them being suspended as linked accounts.

    My question is, should I contact eBay again in regards to account 3 or should I just go merrily on my way and use accounts 1 and 2 and hope for the best?

    I feel as though since eBay has not even looked at the appeal it may be better to let sleeping dogs lie and not worry about following it up. None of these accounts have any great value as their selling limits are somewhat pathetic. I just don't want to get all 3 banned so that I have to start all over again... again!

    Anyone else been in a similar situation as this?

    Listen I'll tell you what to do. Do NOT sell on these accounts, you need to go ahead and make yourself stealth accounts! If you try to sell on these accounts you might get away with selling one or two items but its only a matter of time until the accounts get suspended because they are ALREADY LINKED.

    It's best to learn stealth, and start making money again! If you need any help what so ever just let me know, and I will be glad to help you out!!
