Default Using a Family Member's PayPal

Hi guys. I recently got limited, and now we're planning on using my father's PayPal which has been around for about 6 years. He hasn't used it, however he has a linked card, and his own PC. Everything is different except for our IP address. I was wondering, is this okay? He's a different person and he accepts the payments for me, I don't even touch the account. Since he's using it almost instantly after I got limited, is this suspicious? How much should I begin to receive?

Thank you so much,
I really would like an answer.

Ivan

Please don't use the accounts of friends or family. It's not a good practice.

Been there, done that before and I regret it.

I would recommend getting and reading the stealth guide to create your own accounts.

People must hate their family members.

Why do you regret it? Did you get them limited as well?

Has nothing to do with being limited, your father has nothing to do with your business. Learn to make stealth accounts, and run them as your own. Don't mix your business with family, friends...that simple.

Yup, I get what you mean. I just came to him for help, and he offered his account since he doesn't use it. It's been pretty aged and had a credit card attached, which is why we both thought it'd be a good opportunity.

Are you going to use it just for direct payments or payment gateway (ebay/website etc)?

Best thing you can do is that him know that there is a possibility he might get banned from paypal for life too. Not that this isn't possible for anyone, anytime.

Think of a PayPal account like a bank account or credit card. Would it be OK for you to borrow your fathers bank/card account for your own purposes? There is always a possibility of there being problems down the road. Those problems become someone elses issues if you involve 3rd parties, even if you have their complete permission.

With PayPal the possibility exists for anything to happen. Use your own accounts, either created in your own name, or using stealth techniques as outlined in the stealth guide.

Welcome to the forum - all the best as you master stealth

Prob best to leave that account of your dad alone and make new unlinked accounts

Using it to accept money from strangers. In case I do follow through, how much should I begin to receive? Even on my own stealth? Is $20 okay for a first amount to receive?
