Yeah. But they've made a lot of money from eBay. It shows how certain sellers are looked after.

100 - 200k Net profit would be fine by me!

I think this just goes to show that if you work hard and stay diligent you can have a very successful business on eBay. I'm sure these sellers went through tough times and had plenty of headaches but, they're living proof that it is possible!

Those people probably work way to hard at this. Plus they are doing everything on the up-n-up, something most of the people on this forum are not interested in.

Excuse me? WTF made you the judge? Been here less than two minutes and you know us do you?
Mind what you say next time. You have NOT walked a mile in my shoes nor those of other users so hold your opinions to yourself.
Worry about what you do.

Maybe we should put together a stealth ebay millionaire club, we can all pitch in and help all the stealth users here become millionaires, as long as I get at least 10% up front I'm good...

I don't get it ??

What exactly is the problem with the post by : jtct2010 ??

That we are not on the " up n up " ?

Isn't this the forum for people who were suspended from ebay and had thier paypal limited? Or did I take a wrong turn somewhere and end up at a conservative born again christian do gooder site? If you have a stealth account , then you are not on the " up n up" ? Don't most of the members here have stealth accounts ? Isn't that the point ?

it's easy enough to turn over 1m a year, but pp will be watching you like a hawk

But if you had any sense when you would direct all these customers to your own website

He said that we don't work hard and we are not interested in working hard.
So we are not good enough to be in the up n up even if we want to.

That's the problem.

Wow ..

Is that really what he said ?
I must have missed the part about no being good enough ?
Perhaps he meant that he feels that it is too much work to sell 1 mil gross sales ?
Is he not entitled to that opinion ? His comment was that "they work too hard" ?
You should assume that he means " harder than he is willing to work " :
I don't think that he had any intention of questioning the work ethic of the people on this forum ? And I don't think he meant to insult anyone. I think what he meant is that it is unlikely that any of us will be able to gross a million bucks in a year on a single stealth account. It seems like a fairly logical statement to me ?

My interpretation

"Plus they are doing everything on the up-n-up, something most of the people on this forum are not interested in."

Meaning most of the people on this forum do not want to provide SSN , do not want to provide all thier real details because they have already been suspended by ebay .

Maybe he can clarify exactly what he did mean ..

I remember when this happened. The only reason he got caught was because he went away on holiday and Trading Standards got reports because he wasn't in the country to answer return questions. eBay weren't cracking down on him.

jtct2010 said, "Plus they are doing everything on the up-n-up, something most of the people on this forum are not interested in."

Which was directed towards Jamblix's comment, "I think this just goes to show that if you work hard and stay diligent you can have a very successful business on eBay. I'm sure these sellers went through tough times and had plenty of headaches but, they're living proof that it is possible!"

Meaning jtct2010 either miss-worded his comment or he thinks we're all sh*t.

*thread moved

Sorry, I didn't mean this in any negative manner.

And I definitely don't think anyone in here is sh*t!!

I will have to explain what I meant a little better, English wasn't my strongest subject.

The up-n-up comment was directed towards the fact that most of the people in here have multiple-multiple accounts, meaning it would be very hard to be recognized as an ebay millionaire by an outside source. I would like to guess there are a few in here and congrats.

I also know everyone on this site is a "hard worker", because if you weren't you never would have bothered to look after getting your accounts shut down. I was merely trying to refer to the endless effort it would take to keep 1 account in great standing without getting shut down, long enough to join this millionaire club.

Sorry, if I offended anyone, it was not my intention, I hold everyone on this site in high esteem.
