    I have searched and studied about setting up stealth ebay accounts paypal etc...and it looks so dammed hard I kind of gave up. Even if you get away with it for a short while, it seems only time until you are caught out.

    Is that game over now? I do not mind the hard work etc but what I hate is building an income stream on quick sand. Where you are constantly havng to start from scratch. It's only going to get harder and harder as well.

    Anyone ever think it might just be a waste of time and resources now?

    The best days of ebay selling are long gone, ebay is one of the most un predictable jobs you could choose especially if you're selling fakes.

    If you dont have an issue with working hard than look for legit stuff. The profits are small but its alot better than selling fakes.

    You cannot consider ebay selling as a full time job now....on top of all the B.S ebay gives you...your money isnt yours until you see it in your bank account, paypal can freeze your money without a warning or a valid reason.

    Its just too much stress in it now.

    The days of selling 1000 fakes on same account are dead. Now the only way to sell fakes is to have mulitple ebay accounts, be prepared to lose money, don't gamble you will be safe, be ready you may have to refund cust and may lose more if not careful.

    In addition to having mulitiple accounts you need to sell 1 to 2 items at a time.

    Also, the best option is having multiple accounts selling real and fake. That way not eveyrthing you sell is fake.

    This said if you do all this you will not make that much money unless you buy items yourself but you are risking big time. It's one thing to sell fake on ebay and have someone else pack and ship product for 1 item.

    TO have entire shipment of fake items caught in your name is BAD.

    Now the other way to make money on ebay also is actually finding people to sell items slowly for you. This is for people who want to make some side money but not go full blown selling fakes on ebay.

    I know someone who says they work with over 40 people who have ebay accts. They dropship for you.

    This person takes the big risk by buying the items in bulk and shipping but they are not physically selling anything in their name.

    I would rather run the risk of selling 1 item on 1 account than risk ordering a shipment for myself.

    Hope this helps. Peace.
