    So I registered a Paypal account using a fake name for privacy purposes like 11 months ago. I didn't know that it was illegal at the time.
    Now I got a notice that i need to verify my account to comply to European Union Anti-Money Laundering law or something but I don't want too since PayPal name and Bank Account name are different so yeah.
    I made a new account with my Real info and I would like to let the old one die off. Will my new PayPal account with the real info also be closed?
    I logged in on both accounts from the same IP address.
    Can PayPal check the accounts that logged in to that IP address?
    Will they close both?

    Would love some help and please don't mind my post count.

    Since you logged in with the same ip address to both accounts you should considered them both linked.I suggest you to verify your fake account so you dont lose your real one , get vcc , vba , documents photoshoped whatever they ask and verify it.Alternatively let both die and open a real one from different user account from cpanel and different ip etc , change name or address misspell a bit if possible or use relatives address.

    do this ..
    withdraw all money from both accounts
    than
    dont login into both accounts for 1 week atleast
    than after 1 week
    only login into ur real account(the one u wish to keep from now on) and forget the other one .. and never login into other one...
    just forget the old one...
    but even one more time u login into both accounts u will risk them both
    so from now on.. for 1-2weeks do not login into any account and than laterlogin into only new account
    get your new account verified.. add cc and bank accout
    you shudnt face any problem
    regards

    I heard that secondeye is good for doing stuff like these. The fake paypal requires only bank account verification at the moment.
    Won't they know it's fake when they see that i logged on the by fake one and real one from the same address?
    I mean if secondeye sends the info needed with vcc etc. , won't paypal see that both users logged on from the same PC?

    I kinda have the same problem as OP, I was wondering though: does a dynamic IP address help in this case? I mean, what if I don't log on to my fake paypal account for, say, a month or two, and then create a true verified paypal account, will my IP address have changed so that they can't find out my two paypals are linked? Sorry for the noob question guys.

    Paypal wont be able to see through that its not real bank , thats how everyone use stealth accounts.Your case though is a bit complicated meaning that you have two accounts with same ip but i suggest you to provide the documents they need for verification as you said seconeye can provide this service for you.Then if they ask you about the ip tell them a friend of yours used your pc and internet connection to login to paypal , but dont login again with same ips and from same user account ever.

    Dynamic ip is the real deal , you get a new ip everytime you restart your router , just use different user account from cpanel too

    using 2 accounts from same ip address simultanously will surly get your accounts limits . verified or not.. thats not problem.. using them from same ip in continuity will get you screwed for sure
    just stick to one

    Don't use the fake account at all. clean your cookies and flash cookies. before.
    You can close the fake account definitely by going to any cyber Coffee and use any computer to access the fake one.
    PP will not care if you did not do any transaction with the fake one.
    I used to create 10-20 PP/eBay accounts a month using one laptop but with different usernames and handle all those accounts with my sprint broadmobile (dynamic IPs) back 2007-2008
    End of story.

    Fantastic jokel, I should of thought of that. Also big shout out to haki_master for the idea of telling paypal that it was my friend using the PC.

    So all I need to do now is go to an Internet Caffé and access the fake Paypal account there, so when PayPal sees that and ask questions later about it, I can just tell them my friend was using my PC to access his paypal because of lack of internet, but not anymore since he recently got internet for himself.
    After the Internet Caffé usage, i will stop using the old account forever and use my Real one which i will also link to my bank account and go on with my business.

    Thanks guys for all the help!

    That's definitely a problem... in fact, I had the same issue recently... only way is to call them and see what happens.
