    Seems highly unlikely, since IP addresses turn over so quickly.

    It's been common knowledge for years that PayPal will link accounts logging in from the same IP and if one account owes them money then all accounts owe them money. If other family members have PayPal accounts they can expect them to be limited soon if not already and PayPal will take whatever money they have in there.

    Because eBay owns PayPal and you probably had your PayPal account linked to your eBay account then I'd say yes you jeopardized their PayPal accounts and eBay accounts.

    As far as going after them for payment or attacking their credit, I've never seen that. They only attack the one that they can verify owes them money but they will limit all other accounts they suspect are associated.

    They will take from your bank account. Try to unlink your bank account or something. I'm not sure if removing your bank details from ebay helps though.

    ebay and Paypal may not allow you to unlink the bank account if your accounts have been limited or banned, so just close the associated bank account before either can zap it. Also cancel or change any credit or debit cards associated with the PP and ebay accounts. This I know big time but don't sit around thinking about it! Do it and do it fast!

    I've slipped up a bunch of times logging in and linking ips. I honestly haven't had one problem so i wouldnt sweat it. i for sure used a computer with a family members account previously used on it and their account is still up 4 months after;
