Default New Accounts Being Suspended After Listing Stating Accounts Are linked

Hi People, So I’ve been stealthing for a few years now so I think I’ve got the account creation method perfected I say I think however recently I’ve created 2 new accounts listed a low risk item and then I get suspended I’ve called eBay and spoken to them usually they ask a few questions about do I have stock in my possession and supplier information and account is reinstated however these last 2 accounts they’ve stated the device I’m using is linked to a suspended account.

Now I use Mac to create accounts my account creation process is below;

1. Setup up new user account on my Mac.
2. Fresh gmail email.
3. Fresh IPBurger VPN
4. Fresh EE mobile number
5. Register PayPal account verify with VCC and add bank account and confirm.
6. Register eBay business account.
7. List a low risk item new pictures meta date cleaned.

I have no idea what I’m doing wrong and how there becoming linked, usually when I create accounts I get selling limits of 1000 items but recently I’m just getting 10 items.

The only thing I think off is that my main user account on my Mac has chrome and when I open fresh user account on my Mac chrome is automatically there because it’s installed on my main account so I’m not sure if this is linking in anyway but if that was the case then my other 30+ accounts would be linked and suspended but there not and there going strong.

So confused I’m not sure if eBay have changed anything I’m sure they can not see my device MAC address just can’t get my head around this.

Your comments will much appreciated.

If browser fringerprints is the issue then why havent my other account been shut down and only the new accounts are being shut down.

And if that were the case then the only option i can see is to use safari as Apple have tackled this in there latest update so that browser fingerprint will not work on safari (see below article)

Apple is rolling out some new and much-welcomed privacy protections for Safari that it says will prevent third parties from tracking you, particularly when you’re already doing everything you can to fly under the radar.

At the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) on Monday, Apple took aim at a rarely-discussed method of online tracking known as browser fingerprinting. New Safari updates coming in macOS 10.14 Mojave will supposedly help Mac users blend in online, rather than be uniquely identified while browsing the web.

“Just like you can be identified by a fingerprint, it turns out when you browse the web, your device can be identified by a unique set of characteristics,” Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, told the WWDC audience on Monday.

Browser fingerprinting is a method whereby Facebook, online advertisers, and other third parties track individual users based on a variety and combination of system configurations. Certain details about your computer and browser and plugins you use are transmitted automatically whenever you load a web page; a minuscule amount of data that, viewed in aggregate, forms a substantially unique “fingerprint.”

These fingerprints are one way that data companies can track you, even as you navigate across the web. And they can do it without the help of tracking cookies and without knowing your IP address—a technique that effectively renders “incognito mode” useless.

The data that makes up any given fingerprint may include the type of browser you’re using, your operating system, graphics hardware, screen size, browser plugins, software versions, timezone, language, system fonts, and whether cookies are enabled, among other characteristics. While one or two of these aren’t enough to uniquely identify a person, the more data offered up by your browser, the easier it becomes to pick you out.

The trick, therefore, is to blend in. Your computer should appear no more unique than millions of other users, which is why Apple is promising to cough up only the most basic information to each website you visit websites using Safari—only general system settings and only built-in fonts, for starters. Additionally, Safari will no longer transmit information about the out-of-date plugins you’ve forgotten to discard.

“With Mojave, we’re making it much harder for trackers to create unique fingerprint,” Federighi said. “As a result, your Mac will look more like everyone else’s Mac, and it will be dramatically more difficult for data companies to uniquely identify your device and track you.”

Apple initially rolled out this privacy feature, which it dubbed Intelligent Tracking Prevention, at last year’s WWDC. But the company says the feature is now “enhanced.” From Apple’s press release:

In Safari, enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention helps block social media “Like” or “Share” buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission. Safari now also presents simplified system information when users browse the web, preventing them from being tracked based on their system configuration. Safari now also automatically creates, autofills and stores strong passwords when users create new online accounts and flags reused passwords so users can change them. New data protections require apps to get user permission before using the Mac camera and microphone or accessing personal data like user Mail history and Messages database.

While browser fingerprinting data doesn’t include personally identifiable information, it can be used to create a file on your browsing habits, which can be combined with your name, email address, and other recognizable details about you at a later date—or even immediately, should you visit a website like Facebook that links you to a wealth of personal information.

I see your point but I donít think thatís the case Iíve made 100ís of accounts using a VPN and no issues unless eBay have changed something and therefore the eBay stealthbook would need to be changed to accommodate this.

Using a VPN to make an account is fine, as long as its a Fresh IP VPN

that being said, just because something worked before does not mean it will work forever (aside from Fresh IP VPNs). ebay is cracking down, most likely for the holiday season.

I get emails, notices, read news etc etc... everywhere that say use VPN for online always....

These have nothing to do with stealth or selling, but just saying that news stories, consumer alerts etc. all say use vpn when buying online..

I've even got emails from ebay and Paypal saying to use vpn to protect identity and protect your information...the emails went to spam folder but i happened to see them.

just search VPN service or "why do I need VPN" it's all over the place.

Us a VM that allows different GPU drivers version. The only solution I know offers this is Proxmox. VMware, ESXi and VirtualBox have been outclassed by this simple feature. It's a lot of work, but if you're paranoid - then that's the magic pill you need. Throw in a different set of fonts for each VM, vary screen size and ban browser update and WebGL and you're as unique as can be (in comparison to your next account) all at the same time.

I try to stay away from smaller addons that ⊗⊗⊗⊗ browser fingerprint/hash. These are caught out from time to time.
