    Hello everybody,

    I apologize for opening another thread previously but I think it was in the wrong section.

    I have been recently banned from Flippa due to potential shill bidding. Let's say I pushed things a little more than I should have. I've been trying for over a month to create another account but without any luck.

    Here's what I tried and I still get banned so please help!

    1. I use Tor Browser with noscript and disabled javascript and no flash and no cookies.
    2. I use secure and anonymous VPN/Elite Proxy
    3. I use google voice to verify my phone number
    4. I use a stealth account with PayPal.

    And everything is good till the moment I make my first auction and then, at the same time everyday their secure system triggers a ban for my account saying either " banned for guideline violations: duplicate accounts" or "linked to multiple accounts banned or suspended for guideline violations".

    So I tried other VPNs, other proxies, tried sonetel, I basically tried everything there is and everyday apprx. at 10:30 GMT+00 I get banned for the reason above and for the life of me I can't think of why that happens. There must be something that triggers their system regarding my accounts at that time. Any ideas?

    Please help me with this. I really want to play nice with flippa but they won't let me work with them anymore.

    Best Regards,
    Ivan

    I think you should write a sincere apology to flippa. Be honest and assure them it won't happen again.

    As long as whatever you have done wasn't to bad such as scamming people, then I would expect them to give you another chance. At the end of the day they are in the business of making money and if it wasn't for sellers they wouldn't have a business to make money from.

    I hope it's of some value...

    I spammed a classified site with my affiliate link. I was banned
    by the head of the site emailing my aff manager asking for my personal info
    and demanding I be banned. I was banned as a result. I approach my aff manager and explained what happened, guaranteed him it wouldn't happen again and outlined how I would work in the future....

    And, he reinstated me...

    Explain - why you won't do it again. Give them reasons why you want to do the right thing. Explain you followed "bad advice." And maybe mention that you talked to other people about how they do better by following their rules

    AND "CITE THE RULE or POLICY" so that they know that you went back and read their policy "thoroughly."

    If you really want to garner their favor - tell them you read, and reread their policies for hours or days (major kiss-ass) that will tell them your mind is in the right place.

    Granted, it wasn't Flippa, but Fathom may be in the right ballpark with the "let me kiss their ass approach..."

    Shilling is a smokescreen; "on the scale of offenses," schilling isn't as heinous as an outright scam. On the brightside - you may be accepted back into their good graces

    On the downside - at least you tried - now time to see what other ways to get around the bann...
