    NOTE: i considered this a lot and finally decided that this section was the best place for this topic. i am sorry if i got it wrong :(

    Basically what i am doing right now is trying to get some pennies. not any serious money that i am talking about, just a few dollars each day. it isn't a long trerm plan for me, just to get some money for investment in my other ventures.... :)

    However, it involves giving a new paypal id everytime.

    so my question is, if i use anonymous proxies, is it alryt to make multiple paypal accs? note that i am making temporary accs with fake info (fake ph no, fake address, etc) that i will abandon as soon as i transfer the money out of them.
    so, will paypal catch me doing this? will it get suspicious if multiple accounts transfer small amounts to the same paypal acc (my original one) and then get abandoned?

    getting my real IP in trouble with paypal is the last thing i wanna do, so what do you guys recommend?

    I think it's a bad idea because Paypal is a bitch and if anything seems suspicious, your account will be frozen.

    Be care when dealing with paypal. The suspicious way is not the way to go rightnow, seeing that madeoff, madeoff with all that money, don't take much to draw the attention of the fed boys. Again, be careful.

    gee! thanks for the (scary) reply!
    well, to begin with, what i am doing isn't so bad that people are gonna come after me with guns blazing. i mean, if you "steal" a dollar from someone(not that i am actually stealing...), are they really gonna file a suit against you? all i am doing is trying to find a way around certain...ahem...limitations. that's what BH users do all the time :)

    EDIT: i can assure you it is no worse than PPI legally, and no worse than auto-blogs ethically.

    so, yea, back to paypal, will 5 accounts pouring their money into one acc at different times raise the alarm bell? it's not like i am gonna make 5-10 accs in one day, get the money into them, empty them out and disappear. i am going to do it over a period of time (2 weeks, to be exact)

    EDIT2: just saw proxyman's reply...
    @proxyman: the money is not huge enough to attract fed attention, really, unless the feds would actually bother themselves over $50.

    If your main Paypal account does not receive funds from anywhere else besides these temp accounts then your MAIN account will get banned as well!

    @davioli: my acc receives funds from other places, as well as makes payments. but i receive only small payments, which are few and far between. this won't be much different.
    how will paypal figure out that the new accounts that are sending money to me are linked in any way? there is always the possibility that i did some small stuff on DP and got paid by different people right?

    what i am worried about here is that the accounts will receive money, emtpy it into another one (mine) after a few hourr or a couple of days to be safe. the accs may or may not be used again in future. will that raise any flags?

    plus, are anonymous proxies that efficient? i mean, i know hotmail got fooled when i used anonymous proxies. but does paypal have better technology that will help it track down my original IP when i am making the account?
