Default Similar ads to my previous account

So here's what I want to know. I have some html ads that took me quite awhile to craft. They always seemed to bring in higher prices than the competition, so I don't want to mess with them.

The ads are based on GarageSale (a Mac submission tool) templates. I took all their hosted graphics and hosted them on my server. I took all my own images and hosted them as well, and the whole thing is written in html.

So now that I'm booted off and am starting to use a friend's account, I don't want to screw up by having the ads be the same. So I copied all the images and template to a new domain, and changed all the urls within the html to urls for the new domain. I also changed the title and subtitle, as well as the url for the image for the post itself, which I'm again self-hosting at the new domain.

However, the names of the images themselves have not changed, nor the rest of the html or description (all written within the html).

Do you guys think I'm safe in doing it this way, or will I be caught?

Thanks.

By 'ads' do you mean listings? It is recommended to change everything that you can. This
is a different account and should have different information and presentation.

Aye, I have to agree.

It's too easy to get caught if you're using the same graphics and ad descriptions...

It's not a good idea.
