Default Can accounts guilt only by association get eventually reinstated?

My real account got suspended in April for selling counterfeit stuff. As an unfortunate side effect, my wife's account also got suspended, even though except for address and IP adresss, the accounts weren't related in anyway. (I was selling x product to US customers, she was selling watches to customers in the philippines).

She now would like to start flipping stuff she finds in thrift stores, using one off my new accounts. She has aspirations of selling on ebay fulltime and becoming a powerseller one day.

Of course, since she'd be using a f**k account, I'm worried that one day we might mess up and her f**K acount would get linked back to my real account that was shut down.

So I'd feel safer if she was using a legitimate ebay account but I don't know if thats possible. Does ebay give any sort leniency if the account shut down was not directly involved in the illegitimate activity(only guilty by association), and let that account start selling again after...6...12 months?

Or maybe I'l looking at it the wrong way. Maybe her business would be more stable in the long term if it was spread out over a few f**k accounts?

Need some advice.

They won't reinstate you, that's for sure. You're better off spreading sales over a few accounts, especially in the US because you have more security measures than everywhere else.

You need clean IPs for each account, don't use the same IP on more than one account even if it's clean.

You need an address to access for returns. You could rent a P.O box pretty cheap i'm sure. Don't use the P.O box address for eBay and paypal in terms of "P.O BOX 69, Blah blah street etc" but you could ask them if it's okay to list it as "Flat 69, Blah blah street". If the P.O ask you why, just say something like this "I want to buy things online, and don't wish to share my house address online because of my family" or "I sell on eBay and they require sellers to display an address and do not wish to display my home address for safety reasons".

I heard in the US they're more likely to call you, so get a number you can keep hold of for a long time.

Leniency is highly doubtable - eB doesnt take kindly to linked accounts.

I like the idea of spreading
