    Hello guys. I'm new to Blackhatworld, and this is my first post. I found this forum while trying to find answers to a problem I recently ran into, and I would love if someone here could help me get past this problem so I can maybe try to do business on eBay again.

    Here is the story. I found a Chinese wholesaler who got me good deals on cases for iPhones and other phones as well. I placed my first order with them for 150 cases. These cases are good quality replicas of OtterBoxes. I placed the order, and the cases came in a week later. I had currently 2 eBay accounts and 1 paypal account. I listed 75 cases on one eBay account, and 75 on the other. Everything was going great at this point. I was selling cases really quickly, and managed to sell about 85 cases in 3 days before I got an email from PayPal asking for more information. They asked me for ID, Utility Bill, Proof of Supplier, Invoices. I said Okay, no big deal I can provide all that information and continue on. After I provided the invoice from the Chinese supplier, and My ID, my paypal account was permanently limited. I have close to 2000 USD stuck in Paypal now and one of my eBay accounts has already been permanently banned from selling new items. I'm stressed out of my mind, and I don't know what my next move should be. I thought this method would work on eBay, and it turned out to put me in debt, restless nights of trying to plan my next move, and stress stress stress.

    I want to continue doing business on eBay as I lost my job not too long ago, and am trying to find a way to make money at home while finishing college. Can someone tell me what I did wrong, and what I can do differently to try to sell on eBay again? Any suggestions, advice, or comments would be helpful. Thank you.

    There are people doing it on eBay which is what my goal is to find out how I can do it as well. I want to start again, but I don't want to make the mistake I made last time.

    leaving that amount of cash in your pp is your only mistake. The rest is just what you have to deal with when you sell fakes.

    Most of the money in the account was pending since one of the accounts was a new seller. Can you give me examples of items I can sell on eBay that aren't replicas? Most of the things you buy from Chinese wholesalers or manufacturers are replicas.

    They are replicas. You can not sell those on ebay. Those doing it so "well" on ebay arent going to last long. There is not way around it, that is what ebay takes most serious as it costs them millions of dollars yearly. They will crack down as soon as they see it.

    Otter is the worst thing you can sell on ebay. It will get taking down fast. They have secret shoppers buy your item then verify its fake then comes the lawsuit. Personally I know someone that has been sued for that and they wanted 20k just for trademark infringement. You can do stealth but won't last long if your not smart about it.

    you have to create a new Paypal and eBay stealth account. New user in computer and fresh IP address. You can't use any old information linking you to the old account. There will be limitations on your new account as well. Unless you purchase a verified aged account.

    if I buy a verified paypal, and then make a ebay account using the name and information on that paypal, will I be able to start selling again successfully? (Not selling Vero items this time)

    Buy an ebay and paypal account already made with matching info. I have bought 15 accounts doing this and they are all doing fantastic for me. Just dont sell any fake stuff and you will do great like I am.

    Okay. I've figured most of it out but after I've got a new stealth ebay and paypal, which bank is routed to it? How can I transfer the funds to my bank account?

    Easy, add your bank account to your paypal. Verify it and start sending money after that.

    My bank account was linked to the account that got banned. If I made one at a new bank, and it would obviously be under my name, would paypal still verify the bank under a different name?

    not true I found on Chinese web site the supplier of products they have contracts with the company, that they cant sell if you ask them and do research they will sell you legit products cheap that they make for a main company. I found the supplier of dickies jean in china 3.00 a pair but shipping is high cant afford 3000$ order yet. plus youll get scammed a few times but once you find a supplier your in business profit margin is a lot. I buy 100 bucks every 2 months for this item in china and receive 100pcs and I get 15 bucks for it. I make a sell about every 2 days. if I go any cheaper afraid the company might get suspicious b/c it would be under retail. when I dropped it to 9.99 I made 12 sales in 3 day period. just my 2 cents if anyone cares

    Your big mistake was having more than one eBay account linked to your PayPal account and then selling replicas on your
    real eBay account linked to your PayPal account. Only thing to do now is start over with a stealth account. Looks like you were
    making pretty good money so go for it. However do not keep that much cash in your PayPal account.

    Why would you ever send real invoice from Chinese suppliers trying to prove your item is legit. Did the Chinese suppliers claim it is authentic item ?
