Talking Extremely green newbie here!!

Hello Everyone,

Glad to be on here. Found my way to this forum while researching an online business opportunity involving ebay & paypal. (Turned out to be a scam) but still I'm glad I found you guys & gals.

I did join the forum a few days back but just managed to go VIP a couple minutes ago..Yaaay me!! I am not currently on ebay or paypal (or anywhere else online for that matter) and have never been simply because I live in Nigeria and the rest of the world is leery of anything African in general & Nigerian in particular.....anyways, I got married a year ago and will be joining my husband in the US soon(don't know how soon, waiting on USCIS) but I really want to start an online business that I can run from here and hopefully continue whenever I change locations. I also want to start out right, I'd rather learn from other people's mistakes.

I will take some time off the forum to read & digest eBay Stealth but I will be back to ask questions(lots of them) and contribute in anyway I can.

Okay, after reading eBay Stealth and doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that it would be better for me to wait until I relocate before I try anything with ebay and/or paypal. Doing anything from my current location is way too much of a hassle.

Hopefully, I should be 'geographically relocated' in the next couple of months. In the meantime, I'll keep reading. I won't have anything to contribute at this time but it'll come.

I wouldn't use your "new address" as a first account for a new guy , you may make mistakes and find yourself linked/suspended again - i'm sure you don't want to lose that address by being linked!

Why not try making a stealth address/name for now and play around with it.

Once you get the hang of things then proceed with the new address which you plan to have in the next few months.

Good luck, i hope you take my advice on board.

I agree here.

If you blow it and make a mistake and it goes down you wont be able to purchase things for your NEW address.

Save it for when you are comfy.

Hey Sax, very funny I knew you were kidding.

@ Thankful & Sandy, I hear you. I wasn't planning on using my new address immediately. I have every intention of going stealth at first. My major issue is that I'd have to use a VPN just to access ebay and/or paypal. Can't have a US bank account just yet cos I haven't re-located, can't ship any items from Nigeria without raising giant red flags and so on and so forth.....way too many hassles. In effect I have to physically be away from my current location before I can even start stealthing. That's why I decided to wait. I've never been on ebay or paypal before. I wanna get on there without getting my fine arse handed to me which is why I'm glad I found you guys before I made any dumb mistakes.


P.S. I notice my initial post was edited. Hmm, I hope I'm not breaking any forum rules by not using the default text colours. I'd better go search out the rules.
