Yes if law enforcement are involved it would be easy.

We have a member here who seems to be quite lately who has had several legal issues/levies over Amazon.

It really depends on who you are ripping off. A LOT of these companies, especially the big brands are tired of foofoo and lost revenues.

They can get your records by subpoena in a civil suit but it would cost a few thousand to track you down so the risk is small unless you are selling super expensive stuff or do massive volume.

Everything you do online is easily traced back to you if authorities want you.

You want internet you need an internet provider. Internet provider needs an address to send your service to and gives you an ip address or numerous ip addresses that all lead to you. No matter how many proxies and ip hiders you try to use it doesn't help you.

You can trick ebay and paypal but not the authorities

Using a hot spot or a dongle thats NOT in your name would be the only way I could think of.

Most individuals and companies cannot find you. A company COULD subpoena records to get the information, but that is unlikely.

But NONE OF THIS will hide you from law enforcement. They have access to information that most companies and individuals do not have.

Having said that, it is highly unlikely that law enforcement would take an interest in you unless you are committing fraud and ripping people off or selling something illegal. If you are just selling ordinary stuff on eBay, delivering the merchandise and giving halfway decent customer service, you should not have a problem.

Bottom line is that you can't hide from the authorities. They can track you eventually. Imagine how many more scammers there would be if the authorities did not have this power.

If you are worried about authorities, then stop what you are doing and go legitimate. Not very hard to do.

And this is hard? LOL I bet half the members here do that....pay it with a pre-paid card...etc.

But anyways, as others have pointed out, if they want you, they WILL find you, one way or another.

Don't do shady stuff and you'll be fine.

Can't get a dongle without id. Not in Canada anyway. Otherwise I would go that route.

Technically, one CAN create a stealth that is untrackable. But it requires decent skills and usually is not needed.

Wait a second I thought you use your normal ISP IP for stealth?

at least thats what I read in the stealth guide..

I just switch router when i switch account

is this not the right way to do it?
I thought proxys / vpns etc were the wrong thing to do as it made you look suspicious to ebay?

Read the forums. MANY ways to get an IP besides your ISP or proxies.

Not going to explain it all here as there are hundreds of posts that explain far better than I have time to.

It is possible to hide so noone will find who you actually are. But it is usually not required for a regular stealth.
