    Ok now 3 of my paypal accounts got restricted. And in the last one they say that until i resolve the issues with my other two accounts its not going to get solved. Now i don't know how they know? that the other two accounts were mine. What are they cross referencing? Ip address checking? what are they doing?

    Sometimes it's just best to not think about how they found out because there may always be another way you couldn't think of.

    Actually it depends on how you are using them. For example, I have multiple paypal accounts, but linked with different bank accounts and under my family member's name etc... So, they are also cross referencing what kind of business you doing with those accounts :p

    Why people use more than 2 accounts at a time when they can add more 9+9 emails to them!!!!!!
    Sites like paypal even analyze users internet behavior through cookies.

    All of this is the factor if you did'nt know this then you shouldnt have made additional accounts .Flash cookie is the number one thing Paypal Looks for then the rest .If you need help setting this up properly so this doesnt happen again PM me .

    Dude, you gotta get Better Privacy, a firefox extension. It gives you great control over getting rid of Flash cookies. You can set it up to delete them every hour and on application open/close.

    I hear they can sniff your DNA through your mouse, so always wear fresh gloves.
