    I need to pay for a domain and some hosting but don't want the site to be traceable back to me. Its nothing illegal but someone is paying me to put up info about someone and I don't want the person to know it was me who posted the website.

    I got a pre-paid visa from wal mart but to activate it they ask for your address & ssn. I gave them fake info to activate the card. It said my temp card was activated and could be used but they would not be mailing me the permanent "re-loadable" card until I did some further address verification.

    I tried to use that card with paypal but they didn't take it.

    I have a paypal that was setup with fake info that I haven't used yet or added a card to it. Could I use that account to request money from my legit paypal account and then pay an invoice request to move money from my legit paypal to the fake paypal account? Then use the funds in the fake paypal account to buy a domain & hosting?

    any ideas? thanks!

    This sounds like you'll cross the legal borders.
    You probably are traceable through your paypal.

    a) everything you do which can be linked together need to be done through a strong anonymous IP. Either proxies you know that do not log and can not be linked to you or through something like Tor (if you have Cloakfish it will work well too)

    b) Look for a registrar/webhoster that accepts electronic cash "e-gold, liberty reserve, webmoney, etc). Most russian providers will probably accept webmoney as example.

    Now all you need is to get cash up on your account.
    Webmoney can be loaded through prepaid cards or through exchangers. LR and webmoney will never verify your real name or address so you can use any information on them it will also not be passed
    to the sellers account.
    LR offers anonymous non logged payments (not sure about webmoney) so you might even be able to use a legal source of cash (like your bank account) for them. Depending on what you want to do it's an option at least.

    Definitly depends on the stuff he wants to do.
    I'd trust such hostings only for minor things.

    Yeah I know plenty of hosts in panama etc but how do you pay them?

    Here's the deal. I know a cop and someone posted some bad shit about him on a website. The site had the private registration but the cop hired a private investigator who was still able to get the persons info about who owned the site. Turns out to be another cop. Now he wants to retaliate with a site of his own but doesn't want it in his name.

    I don't want to have anything in my name either in case the other cop gets pissed about the site.

    I will try the lib reserve, that should work. Thanks!
