    I am trying to setup several Paypal accounts that have my real name but obviously different IP's, addresses, etc.

    I heard from someone that you don't want to give a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ SSN even if you plan on giving them a legitimate Tax ID later on. I used to create accounts with phony SSN's and phony names- but because of the low cost, high volume business I need to do- I can't run a traditional stealth account.

    So I need these accounts to be in my real name but I obviously CAN'T give them my real SSN b/c A) I was banned from PP back in 2005 and B) That would link all the accounts lol.

    Somehow I got around this on one of the Paypal accounts I registered this morning. But I can't seem to replicate what I did (I don't exactly remember. Just know that I didn't submit any SSN)

    I also need to note that as of right now I don't have a EIN for any of these accounts. I haven't decided which route to go to obtain EIN's- I may file my accounts as separate LLC's.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Change the text color, way to difficult to read.

    They don't ask for SSN when signing up unless you are upgrading to business. But even then, they ask for the last 4 digits.

    Won't you just open up the accounts, then get the EINs first before upgrading?

    Start with a personal account and once you approach the 200/20k limits, then supply an EIN #. It's very easy to get EIN #'s once you decide on how you want to structure your business entity.
