Default Is this risky?

I have a question for you guys.

I need to get $10 in to my PP. My thought is to send an invoice to a brand new gmail account I register for, then use a prepaid Mastercard debit card I have (which has never been used for PP in anyway) to pay the invoice without a PP account.

The mailing address on the prepaid card is the same as the one on my PP account though.

Will PP see this, or will they only get a yes / no answer from Mastercard on whether not the info matched and payment was authorized?

Any thoughts or shared experience are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

The address will get you linked and probably your account banned for suspicious activity...

In theory you are better off using this method with a gift card not registered to your address.

I would not send invoices in to the air if I were you. This method can be very complicated to add 10$. I wouldn't risk it.

So is there concern other than the address? I can log into the online account for the prepaid card and change the address for this payment, then change it back.

Do you have experience with this causing problems?

why not just pick up a mycashcard, and load it to your account? i think minimum is like 20.. but its awhole lot less risky then what you're suggesting.. or why not withdraw the money from your bank?

This is very risky advice for stealth Accounts.

Is the account you need $10 in still under 90 days old? I mean, does it still have holds?

A few weeks ago I needed to transfer to money to one of my accounts for a refund. I thought it would be simple but I forgot to consider payment holds on new accounts. I invoiced PP#2 from PP#1 and paid the invoice, but then the payment was held for 3 weeks. Meaning I couldn't use the money for what I needed and the darn payment is still pending.

Thanks, this is good to know. I was in the same boat, and didn't think the hold would apply to a direct invoice. I decided not to risk it, and my buyer was nice enough to be cool waiting two days for the refund when some of my held funds became available.

As luck would have it, I relisted the returned item and it sold for twenty bucks more via buy it now than the previous auction did, and the payment cleared immediately (the first one to do so on my new account- 93 days from my first sale). Thanks again for the info though!
