    Hi,

    Looking for a bit of advice. Had a stealth account, got a chargeback after selling a digital code, now got a negative balance. My only worry is that I had a added a bank account in my real name BUT DID NOT submit direct debit information. So can they make me pay because I added a bank card in my name?

    I'm a bit of a worrier type of person, and now don't know what to do. I understand that if I submitted the DD and confirmed the account they would know the bank account belonged to me, however I only added the sort code and account number. So surely they can't say the account is mine as anyone who has had a cheque from me will know me account number and sort code.

    What really annoys me is that a couple of weeks ago I had a -£300 stealth account but sent them a cheque and cleared the balance even though it was limited, now I have been scammed again. I make about £300 from 20 sales then one person scams me and messes everything up.

    Thanks a lot for any help.

    What do you mean by Stealth account where you use your real name and send cheque?

    You are already exposed. I don't know what you are selling. But if it's NOT illegal then stop worrying and keep doing your business.

    if it was just your name you gave you are fine besides your ISP footprint. I can take anyones name from a phonebook and claim it as my own online. it is you footprint that screws you. What were you selling? who cares about a chargeback. It happens

    No, stealth as in name and address was not mine, however when I got into negative balance in my other account I told them i was sending a cheque in my friends name. That was the other account. This account is also stealth (different name/address) however I added a bank card with my real name (didn't confirm) and now have a negative balance. My question was weather they can track me from the card details.

    I don't know all your activities but there is a good chance that they can find you IF they REALLY want.

    I'm new with this stealth stuff.But,I've sold on feebay for many yrs to know business is business.
    As any seller knows or for those that don't know.It takes a item to sell a item.As takes from Peter to pay Paul.That is how sellers cover refunds and how eBay & Paypal works too.You say your PayPal account is now in the red from a CC charge bank.Instead of trying to add funds to your Paypal account to get back to par.The simplest thing to do is sell a item or more items to get you back up to par with PayPal.If your funds aren't held as example 5-21 days.Once you sell a item.The money from that transaction will par your Paypal.As back in business.
    I've listing items I didn't have yet in order to get out of the hole in PayPal or eBay.I never had to add funds to my PayPal account.
    Once you sell a item the funds are their for eBay or Paypal to divide to your owed buyers or negative balance.
    Example,if you sell a $500 item.You better be listing another $500 item to cover the item that you just sold in case of a return/refund.Takes a item to sell a item.As takes money to make money hope this helps.
    Best,Dan.

    Let's face it,eBay will link you no matter what you do.They have the time,money and the ability to do so.eBay is the biggest and known and founder platform on the web.If you gave eBay or PayPal any of your real information when using a stealth account regardless you will be linked.Most likely you are right now linked from giving that CC with your real name.Some will differ what I'm saying to say don't worry.Your o.k. as good to go_Or another,If eBay linked you you would know it.
    I don't know about all of you suspended eBayers. But,I've sold for 3 plus months before I was suspended.Once your flagged.Your not suspended.Your being watched as investigated.I've had eBay buy items from me believe it or not.They do buy items from sellers just to verify.They also, wait for you to upload a tracking number.If you recall 2-3 yrs ago.eBay created a new update about ending a listing early.Now the update is if there's a bid on a item your wanting to end early final value fee will apply if there's a bid on it.
    eBay bids on items too.Just for this reason.It's called a non paying buyer.Little people know what eBay does to get a buck.Have you every wondered if eBay bids on your items?Why would eBay bid on your items you ask?Final value fee if you end a listing early.That locks eBay's final value fee in place.Another reason is to make eBay look good.If sellers think eBay's traffic is good.Sellers will list more items.eBay makes their money from stock holders and fees.Did you know that eBay's Seller's Protection is only good to use twice?I guess it doesn't matter if your running on a stealth account does it.
    Hope it helps.Best,Dan.
