    I had an account that got hit with 2 copyright violations (Both were unfair. Vero does whatever they want) and my account was suspended about 5 months ago.

    I already had an account that has been around for 3-4 years so I moved my business over there. I've been selling fine for the past 4-5 months (great feedback/dsr ratings, no problems, etc).
    I had an issue that I had to call eBay about today (Raising selling limits. Doing research on this now shows me that this was a big mistake) and they said they detected that my account was linked to a previously banned account so they're going to ban this account as well.

    So now I'm screwed. I started a business last year and sell a ton of items on eBay so this is going to really cut into my profits if I can't sell on there.

    I've been looking online about how to start a new account without being detected again. Is it possible to create a new account and have it actually last? I'd like to just be able to have a legit account and not have to do deal with making new accounts, changing info, etc.

    I actually just switched banks so I can link my paypal to a new bank/credit card. I have a different address and phone number that I can use. I know how to change my IP address. My name is still the same though and I can't get around this with using PayPal.

    And advice on what to do in this situation? I hate eBay but I need to be able to use it.

    You have a lot options. You can buy an ebay account along with Paypal. There are many sellers who can help you. For sure you should buy a vcc in order to change your name. Of course you should change email, address, ip and computer if its possible..

    You have to go stealth. Search the forum, there are very informative posts.

    First, They probably linked the accounts via Flash Cookies or a Web beacon from a picture in
    a email you opened. A solution would be to acquire a stealth account and follow all of the proper
    steps in running in.

    Good Luck and let me know if you have any questions!
