    hey guys,

    I'm curious, what's the process to buying an established ebay account? I mean, the ownership has to be transferred somehow, the passwords changed, etc.

    How does this work? Do you pay with paypal? Does ebay frown upon it?

    What would stop someone from buying an ebay account from someone else, then selling all kinds of pirated software or something similar through the account? Wouldn't the person who originally created the account be liable for the account activity? Or is the change of ownership noted?

    I'm not planning on doing anything like this but I am curious how that would work. I think it'd good for all of us to be clear on it.

    Also, how much do figure a person could buy an ebay account with say 25 100% positive feedback? And where?

    Thanks for your help!
