How do I register a stealth eBay sellier account? eBay is asking for proof of identity?

    I registered an eBay stealth account last month but I cannot seem to list even a single item on eBay! When I try to list an item of any value or type I get this message:
    "It looks like you've reached the number of items and amount you can list. You can list up to 0 items and $0.00 in total sales this month. Request to list more"

    So I called the number they gave and the CS rep told me they need to verify my identity first and in order to do that they need to confirm my address. The address on my account "didn't go through" according the CS rep. So I gave them a neighbor's address and another address. No luck. These are valid residential addresses but of course not linked to my fictitious name. They said the only other way to verify my identity so I could sell on eBay would be to do the following:

    One identity proof document

    Driver License (copy of both front and back)
    Passport
    Military ID
    National/Federal ID card
    One address proof document

    Bank statements, including loan/mortgage statements
    Credit card statements
    Utility bills (phone, power, water, etc.)
    Insurance bills and statements

    WTF eBay? Is there any way around this?!

    The way around this is to forget about this account and try to make another one.

    Wouldn't I encounter the same problem? I registered this account only a month ago. Also, just tried another account and I get the same message that I'm over the selling limit of 0 items.

    The problem is that the info you're giving them when you register is not showing up on any public database, that automatically pretty much gets you that message sometimes, but if they're already asking for documents you may be linking yourself somehow, or they don't like what you listed as your first listing.

    Or you're using some kind of Virtual Phone or sth like that.

    Buy a SIM from your local store and use it. Fresh new real number.
