    Hey so I'm going to set up another stealth account, but I need to know if for the address I can slightly modify the numbers without being questioned?

    For example:

    Paul Avenue 398202

    Would it work if I changed it to:

    Paul Avenue 398203

    Same zip code, same state, same city, but a slightly different number? Is that enough to make the ebay/paypal systems believe I am two separate people?

    Of course everything else on the stealth account will be completely different.

    The rule of thumb is to have all the details different when going stealth. Some people are getting away with the same address but its not worth the risk. One thing to consider is how you gonna handle returns with a different address. Some buyers are kinda paranoid when it comes to returning item to a different address. Renting PO box works well in this case.

    Not a good idea because even if you get past ebay's bots (you likely would get a MC999 if the address is not found), all it takes is one manual review by a human (whether it was because you requested higher selling limits, or ebay decided to review your account for their own reasons) and your accounts would easily be linked together and suspended if the other account is already gone.

    Just use a completely different address, it will be better in the long run.

    Make it completely different, dont risk wasting your time. It will just make you depressed in the long run if it fails, go on yellowpages or 411.com and find any address to use, it would work perfect. There are also methods on increasing and verifying those stealth accounts to get limits to 100 items and 5k selling limit. If you ever need help on anything feel free to add me on skype
