Default Viability of throw away accounts?

Hello all. I recently have gotten a hold of some stock that could be considered "High Risk". My personal Ebay account is not banned yet and I have sold a few of the item so far but have recently received my first strike. I figure if I continue to sell the item my account will be banned so its better to take the stealth rout now so to not put my personal account at risk.

My question is, how viable is it to create several stealth accounts, sell 1 or two of the item, which go for around 4-600$, and then switch to a different stealth account and so on. Is it something that is sustainable? From reading some threads on here, my biggest worry is that paypal might limit my account after I receive payment and I'll have to wait 180 days which would suck, but some say that it only happens after a few thousand is received, and I wouldn't be selling so much on one account to receive that much. What are you thoughts on using accounts in this way?

There's no such thing anymore as throw-away accounts. $400-$600 is going to get you unwanted attention and probably get each of those accounts limited. Let me guess, you would probably be doing a PayPal to PayPal transfer of all the money?

I was thinking of using capital one 360 to link to each paypal account and transfer money through that. Can I ask why you think it wouldn't work? would one sale of around $600 guarantee my paypal would get limited? and if I did, would I still be able to get access to the money after 180 days like usual? I'm okay with the accounts becoming useless after a sale or two, I'm not looking to grow a large account, I was just wondering if I would be able to pull the money out after a single sale was made.

There is no 100% guarantee with pp - you could receive the money and then get blocked without being able to withdraw
