    I have 4,000 dollars locked in my paypal account. I have been selling electronics on ebay for a third party.

    They want tracking information, invoices for purchase of the products, and supplier contact info. Basically I list the auctions and then my supplier ships to them. I do not get tracking numbers in fear of him finding out how he gets the products, thus eliminating the middle man. Also, we do not have invoices, I just pay him on guru.com after he ships the goods.

    I know this is probably useless to ask for help, as it seems I am pretty much screwed, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Your best bet is to probably fake some invoices. See if it flys by paypal.

    just tell them that your supplier sends the products to them....you can also ask your supplier and invoices of purchase...it isnt illegal to do drop-ship...isit

    You better wait it out. The more you fake, the more trouble you will be in.

    It's good to stay calm and wait for the 180 days to pass.

    Did you call them? don't do fake things. The best option is wait 180 days.

    Turns out I have an old paypal account locked. I was totally honest with them and he said I can probably get this straightened out. Have to pay the amount due on the old paypal account and then go from there. Somehow I think I am still screwed.

    call them and send email asking what's wrong with your acc
    and describe your situation (fake it)
    you can't get the whole tracking because you've got to format your PC or what
    it works for me once
