Default Bulletproof accounts?

I found that I have 2 dormant accounts (one from 1999 and one from 2001). Each have a positive feedback of 1.

Would they be considered bulletproof or would they be considered prime for a suspension (abusing EBay, vero, etc.) since they have been long dormant?

I'd say they would be fantastic to use. The older accounts don't get monitored nearly as much as the new ones, if at all. Do you have old paypal accounts to?

If so, I'd say you had a nearly bulletproof account XD

Don't wonna sell one do you?

Don't think I have PayPal accounts for them. This is before PayPal was really integrated with EBay (years before they were bought).

Hey, I'll think about selling. But will try to use one of them.

Good idea. It's a shame you don't have an old paypal account to. All the new paypal accounts get very closely screened and monitored. Just go slow with the paypal, and you SHOULD be okay.

Also, make sure your account is verified before you do anything with it

Well I figure if I run 2-3 items a day I'll be Ok. Ran 10-15 items a day on a month old account and got suspended by EBay. If I run 2-3 auctions on 5 different accounts, I think I'll be fine.

What conditions did the suspend you on? I really don't know why they would suspend you JUST because you had 10-15 a day, were they VERO items or anything like that?

Ah okay. When the rights owner requests them to be removed, after 2/3 removals, you will be suspended whatever. It's a pain if you have multiple listings of the same item, as you will just get suspended.

If I had VINTAGE accounts like that, I wouldn't even risk tainting them with some new Paypal account. Especially when you can get away with selling on those accounts without using Paypal at all! I'm so jealous!

I have plenty of these accounts I owe fees on. However when I log into them there is no mention of past due amounts and I have not been suspended so I'm not sure if I apply a new cc to them if they'll still work or not.

For several grand, I'd sell one of those.
