Hi, ive been trying to find advice about this on the Internet but have had no luck, so I am hoping someone here can help me. A year ago I decided to sell both my Ebay and PayPal accounts after seeing a page on Facebook for a company that buys them. I contacted them and was assured everything was legal and all details would be changed on the accounts if I sold them. I agreed and was paid £500 for both. The buyer then sold the account on to another guy. He started selling on there and all looked ok. Recently my mums eBay account was restricted because of the association with my old account. When I checked the eBay account has become an unregistered user account and the PayPal account is in £4000 debt. The guy I sold it too has been no help. Told me to ring PayPal and explain and it would all be ok. When I checked paypals user agreement I realised I cannot do that. Because if I have willingly let someone else use my account I am worried I will be responsible for the debt. I am an honest person and would rather tell the truth. But I am also self employed. If I am held accountable for the debt would i have to pay tax on it too? I recieve working tax credits which im worried would stop if they investigate me? And in the future if I have to declare that money I wouldn't be entitled to any tax credits, which as a self employed single mother of twins, I do unfortunately rely on. I dont earn very much from self employment and certainly dont have this kind of money to repay. So should I lie, and say ive been hacked. Or should I tell the truth and tell them all I know so these people may finally get a bit of karma. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
