    Hi all

    Two of my friends have allowed me to setup eBay and PayPal business accounts in their names. All legit, Paypal verified etc. They both live in Bristol UK.

    As per advice found on this forum, I have created two new accounts on my laptop, purchased proxies from anonymous proxies . net on marketplace and have been very careful generally so none of the information gets linked etc. To my surprise, both accounts were suspended day after opening them!

    I am puzzled why this has happened. The only thing that comes to my mind is that proxies were not based in Bristol but in different cities in UK, but surely as these are business accounts it may be the case that these get accessed from different locations?

    Unfortunately both of these accounts are in female names, so I can't phone and discuss myself. I will try to get one of my girl friends to phone and argue.

    Sometimes it pays to be straight all the ways.

    My argument is, whatever two accounts can do, one can also do.

    Just an update on the above. I got one of my friends to contact eBay who advised that some of the info in the new business account didn't match the old individual account. I am going through a standard ID verification process.
