    I am about to create an EIN for my new shop because I have already used my SSN and can't use it again because those accounts would become linked.
    They need to verify my address but ive already used that address. Can I create a fake address for my EIN. Everything else will be real.

    Why do you think you need a fake address? What new shop? So what if you used the address already?

    My old shop got closed because the "etsy gang" kept flagging my account. They were mad because I was making bank with such a new account. They kept asking me how I did it and I told them I'm not giving my knowledge of etsy seo out. So etsy closed my account and I can't make a new one with my address.

    I clearly don't know how etsy accounts work.

    Do you have to give etsy your ssn/ein? Where does the ssn/ein problem play into this equation?

    Can't you lie to etsy, or get a PO box, or "rent" an office?

    Yes I gave etsy my ssn and we can't use po boxes for the address, we have to use our home. So basically I'm in a corner here. If I can get a Canadian VBA I will be ok because they don't have to provide any info on etsy.

    etsy seemed cute, now that site seems like a stalking ex girlfriend.

    Why can't you lie and say you live wherever?

    Why not have a lawyer contact them?

    Yes they do...my friends account was deleted. I have NEVER used any type of blackhat technique for anything. It was likely because they looked at my account after being flagged so many times and could see my products werent handmade.

    you like complicating things i take it. that seems etsy-like.

    i'm going to make an etsy account and see what goes on over there.

    also, never use your ssn for business. always use an EIN.
