they suspended my account, but nothing happened after that. I wouldn't risk it though. You never know what can happen afterwards

From real life events? It hasn't happened to me, or anyone on this forum. There, that's your answer from real life events lol. The only other real life events that could grant you an answer, is someone that's had legal issues from this, and I can guarantee you that if that happened, you'd find a thread on it. That's a money back guarantee

Goggle it.

It's pretty clear if you care to investigate that plenty of folk have been sued.

Where's your money going to? Every stealth account has a flaw.

If they really want too they can trace your bank account. At the end of the day that is the only thing that is identifying you if all your internet / browsing etc is clean.

You would have to be big fish though I would have thought.

All depends how hard the relevant parties want to pursue you.

As I said before selling pirated software simply isn't worth the risk. Plenty of money to be made buying and re-selling normal items. You need to actually do some WORK and find a product.

Nothing is really stealth. How do you think they track down smart hackers? And you think an eBay Stealth account is unbeatable?

Let me put it this way. How do you get your money? They can just follow the money trail very easily if they wanted to. What exactly are you doing that is so high risk?

Also if you messing with the big boys, that is a mistake. Sony, Microsoft, etc...FEDs have done busts for these big boys before.

Yes, if you are doing a lot they can surely catch you, but if it's small one account and it's close not likely they will take it further.

I would no suggest anyone to build a business based on violating anything by anyway. Try your best to keep it fair for both parties or you might get caught at some point.

LOL keep it fair. For ebay and big tech. I'm sure ebay and big tech is all about keeping it fair for both parties too.

it would cost them more money to take you to court and have you prosecuted than they are losing or could possibly hope to recover from you. The worse that happens is you get a cease and desist letter and your account closed

True but there is potentially a cracking point where the main company could decide it's time to go after a person very hard...

Opening the account and getting to withdraw from it are two different things. You will need to provide ID very soon
