Do not do that.
Yes that is illegal, there is a word for that...What was it again...
Oh yes, Fraud.
And fraud can attract some hefty prison sentences if you are caught.
it is fraud but stealth in general is fraud is it not?
also would paypal ever waste there time tracking down someone making 1 thousand or so a month doing this i mean wouldn't it cost them more to track this person down
I'm not familiar with how stealth accounts work, but if you give deceive someone for personal gain it is fraud. I think in the case of stealth accounts it would be "fraud by false representation" as you are giving fake details. The scheme you outlined is much worse than just creating a paypal account with false details though.
That's another question entirely, and I'm not sure about that. I think if they discover suspicious activity on their network they will have a duty to report it, after that it is up to the authorities to do the actual investigating. Someone who uses stealth accounts will be better placed to answer this one.
I am 99% sure that i saw a person here having problems with paypal and the police because of his negative paypal balance.
When you withdraw the money it goes to a bank account, that bank account will have your name and BAM, you are done. I think you came to the wrong forum, this is Internet Marketing not Internet Theft
Don't do it. In simplest terms, it's theft of property. In worst terms, it's a federal felony that could be construed as a RICO violation or money laundering!
Dementia all round.
Yes, it is illegal. This is Internet Marketing forum & Black hat SEO, not frauds.
Now, if you please...
Yes that is illegal!
I think you're misunderstanding the definition of blackhat. Blackhat is doing clever things without breaking the law.
Don't do it.
If you get caught you will be in deep shit and more than likely end up owing more than $300.
Don't do it man. Let's say you can get away for like several instances but don't wait until it bites you in the ass. It's a quick money scheme but the consequences will be severe.
You know what, do it and I hope you go to jail. I mean come on at the end of the day you know what you are doing is wrong. Spend time coming up with ways to make money, shoot start reading threads here to get some ideas and use your head.
