    I have an ebay account I got from a friend. I used a vps and then made it my account by changing all the info to a person I made up. I did the same for paypal and linked the two together. I sold some things and got my paypal both bank and vcc verified. The bank was a real bank account of mine that hasnt been used ever before on paypal. My papypal got restricted and about a week later I sent them all the stuff they wanted. Invoices, drivers license, etc. All under the farce mans name. But then they just fully limited my paypal with a 180 day hold on my money. The ebay account however, strangely is unaltered(no ban or anything). Its a good account and I'd like to continue to use it. I was told that I can link a new paypal I just have to be careful. My question is though do I make a new paypal account with all the same stuff on the ebay,obviously id have a new bank account and vcc, or do I make a whole new identity and change the ebay info once again which i feel would assure a ban on the ebay account.

    You can't just link a new Paypal to it and be okay. You may be fine for a while (and "a while" can vary greatly - could be months, weeks, or just a few days) but eventually that new Paypal will get limited too and this time the eBay account would probably go down at the same time.

    And if you use the same info on a new Paypal as your limited one, you're making it too easy for Paypal to link the new account to your limited one.

    Best to start over fresh, or at least look to alternative payment processors that eBay accepts (but be prepared to have a huge drop in sales since buyers think that Paypal is the only way to go).
