Question Can I still use my old account?

Here's the deal... I had two eBay accounts. One is like 6 years old and has thousands of feedback and is a powerseller, the other one is about a year old and got suspended for non-performance.

The newer account was suspended last month and I figured my old powerseller account would be suspended too (since they are linked with IP and cookies)... but it hasn't been suspended yet.

I haven't sold anything with my powerseller account (or even logged in) since the other one has been suspended.

Don't you think if I clear my cookies, change my IP address, and use a new laptop I will be fine? I mean at what point do they check to see if an account is related to a suspended account? Is it when you log in? If that's the case, having a new IP address would circumvent that. Or is it when you post a new auction?

It just doesn't make sense that they check EVERY single seller EVERY time they post an auction to see if they are linked to a suspended account. Maybe when you log into your account it quickly looks at the cookies and IP and checks to see if it's listed in the list of suspended users?

It's been a month and they haven't linked the two already... so am I in the clear?

I really want to use my old powerseller account because it's established and I have a lot of buyers who keep coming back to me.

So I guess that means you think it won't get suspended?

Me Personally... Its a 60/40 I guess... When they took my main ps acct down, was a gold ps acct-6 yr old, they also took down 3 other ps accts i had fb ranged 800-1200.
BUT... you could get lucky if you change up everything...I was just thinking maybe you wanted a change of scenery?

When they took down your main ps account... how long after that did they take down your other accounts?

Yeah so they probably got your other accounts when you tried logging into them with the same IP and cookies from the 1st banned account.

I'm going to try to use my other account on a new laptop I just got and change the IP address and see what happens. I'll also make a new account (on another IP) as a backup in case the **** hits the fan.
