Default Re-using Pre-paid credit card?

I have found 2 old pre-paid mastercards that still have balance in them. They actually expire in a month. Yes They were really old cards. I would say i bought them 2-3 yrs ago. lol.

The balance on these cards are between $2-$5 so I am thinking why not use them to create another eBay Stealth account.

The problem is that because they are old cards. The card history has been wiped. When i try to check the history. It would only tell me the balance and it will say "no previous transactions"

so i don't know if i have used these cards on ebay/paypal before. I normally would not re-use anything including card numbers.

I am wondering is it ok to re-use the same card number on ebay? would it be ok if the Name/address/ip etc is all different but the card number just the same? Are card numbers stored on ebay? would it link it to an old ebay account?

EVERYTHING is stored on ebay/paypal.

Avoid doing this.

It is dangerous.

I really would not risk it for such a small amount.

Thanks for the reply greenbean.

I wasn't sure if i should risk it or not since i don't have the card history. I guess i'll use the card to go buy myself a coffee instead. lol
