    Im making an anonymous PP account but still need to withdraw money. If my bank account is in my real name, and the pp is in a fake name, does PP see the name on the bank account? The account in my real name was locked so if they see my real name on the account will they lock the new account also? the bank in my name was not on the old account for them to know the numbers from the locked account.

    Prob not going to matter anyways due to a very dumb customer. I contacted some of my old customers about getting refunded from my old locked account and sending invoices to them via my new account. So i had one very bright fellow that decided to call paypal and try to just get the money transferred from the locked account to my "new" account.... /facepalm.

    I am shocked the account isnt locked yet. Im sure they will wait till someone sends money though.

    Dude, this isn't dumb customer problem. So you tell a customer that you're going to cancel their purchase but will from another account. That's going to set off all sorts of scam alarms. The whole point of stealth is not to mix accounts, remember?

    The purchases are coming from a buy site so it will just look like the guy just went and got it from someone else. Anyways i never expected anyone to call paypal and spill the beans. Did i make a mistake perhaps but really not a dumb customer issue? the dude called paypal about transfering funds after i had already told him that i cant access my old account due to the amount of the funds and the site he is buying from... so he calls pp and ask them to move his "fishy" money from one account to another. sorry thats pretty dumb. I was going to invoice it diffrent and do part of the payment now, and a few parts later. He tried to of course move it all.

    Also so nice to see when i need help no one even bothers, but dont mind writing me telling me how dumb i am. Loving this site so far.

    I believe one of the ten commandments of running stealth accounts is never, ever do anything that could link two accounts with anyone and that includes the customer.

    I think you need to talk to the guy on the other thread who thinks that people can just get away with fake return addresses because no one will ever notify eBay/paypal.

    Yes, but you have to assume going into selling stuff online that half your customers are total idiots. Your mistake was assuming that everyone would make reasonable decisions if given a chance to F it up.

    No they don't see the name on your bank account

    Again they don't see your name on your bank account. I wouldn't attach any accounts to account that has already went down. The only time I would add if I had to withdraw money after the hold
