Default ***help*** Account Suspended

Dear Aspkin and forum members,

Thank you so much for building such a great forum. It's real asset to people like me who badly needs a solution.

I was a college student in the US and graduated last Christmas. I returned to Asia for full-time work. I was doing part-time on eBay when I was in the US.

When I logged into my account after I came back, my account got suspended in a few days. I had no hint until i found this forum. I still have some inventories in the US needed to clear so I badly need help to create an account. (My classmate is helping me to ship the goods)

Could you kindly tell me how to register a US account from abroad? I think the IP is the main problem since it's hard to register a US account with an Asian IP.

I would greatly appreciate your advise. I am a poor fresh graduate who badly need to cash out my inventories in the US.

Many thanks and warm regards,
Agen

xxxstore, welcome to the forum. Lots of info here but some questions first.
What was the reason for account suspension. Which country are you located
in at the moment?

Hi there,

My account was supsended due to abusing eBay. I don't know the exact reason but I believe they suspected my account was hacked. I am now in Hong Kong. Any suggestions greatly welcomed.

Regards,
Agen

Also, have you tried appealing against your suspension? And explaining the situation.

Registering the account is not the issue - you can do that. Maintaining it would be the issue.

You can purchase a U.S. created account from one of the account sellers on here (Modee (me) or ebayhateluv), but I am not sure how EBAY will react when you keep logging into the account from an IP address far away.

And proxy is not a solution either.
you can get an american VPN from abroad...
(see posts in ebay tracking subforum)

Disagree!


A friend in the US could setup a VPN, him connecting to his friend, and working through his friend's ISP. In effect, it's as if he was residing in the same house his friend lives.


Friend is going to need windows server or equivalent. Or 3rd party add on program to allow VPN connections. In effect internet traffic will go from Asia to friend in USA, and then from there to wherever it needs to go. WinGate is a neat VPN software. But it's best to have your friend setup a real windows server 2000 or better.

Going by that your ISP is a proxy. You connect to it and it connects you to the web.


Proxy, or HTTP proxy service, is different than VPN.


There is no way for eBay to know that you are connecting them through proxy or otherwise. VPN is transparent and it's as if you were browsing, using FTP, or what not, from the same computer VPN server is located on.


Essentially you are speculating, and you are incorrect. You're going by limited knowledge. Not even realizing that your connection to your ISP is EXACTLY the same thing as a connection via VPN to a VPN server. The difference? Carrying protocol, DSL or Cable VS virtual private network via internet.

Our thinking at the beginning when we were green like you was that proxies could work, but we determined eventually that they cannot. And that even with simple tools I myself could determine when a person is logged in on a proxy, so obviously EBAY can do the same.
I myself was able to verify that I was logged in with a proxy. I wish you wouldn't come on here and with your third post ever and try to gainsay what we've established through painstaking research, especially with no data to back up what you post.

Data comes with experiments. Members on here logged into many different proxies and I was able to determine that they were on a proxy every time. EBAY has at least as sophisticated tools as I have.



You are talking about proxy servers. I'm talking about VPN. VPN and proxy server is not the same thing.



Read this thread. Virtual private network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

and this one Proxy server - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hurricane,

Thanks for your suggestions. You seem to have a lot of insights. Could you send me an email at agen.chan@gmail.com? I wanna ask you some questions about the technology you mentioned. Many thanks and wish to hear from you soon.

Regards,
Agen

me and other people here in the forum are using witopia VPN without problems on ebay (see thread in tracking subforum).
this vpn is not being detected as proxy and i'm operating 2 US / Canadian ebay accounts from the UK since about 6 weeks without problems...

steve

when you purchase a witopia VPN, are you able to request which part of the world you want to be coming from? You mentioned that you have 2 US/Canadian accounts whilst you live in the U.K.

Aplogogies if I have not made myself clear
