Default Buying stealth accounts - A word of caution

Someone told me they are receiving offers to sell etsy accounts and all you have to do is change the bank account - be weary of this! Etsy for DC shops require a SSN to set them up and I highly doubt they are selling their own info - itís more than likely stolen.

This is a very do at your own risk situation. Etsy will issue a 1099 for that SSN and it wonít be yours... but they can sure trace your identity with a bank account.

Sadly I believe a few have been duped.

They will send it to the address on the account, yes.

Looks like the person selling them got caught. I figured they were an etsy employee, tbh. Shady as hell in messages.

24VC is reliable. I don’t think that is your issue. More than likely your connection is timing out while it’s verifying the shop. You’re in the US so using a dongle or tethering is easy.

I also hope you aren’t using ⊗⊗⊗⊗ or others info.
