Default just got MC113

opened account using new IP, email, name & address & firefox portable browser.
Linked to new verified paypal, opened using all the same new info.
did all the usual stuff, browsing, watching etc, for 3 weeks then listed 5 items.
all low value, books, DVDs, old shoes. Nothing over 10

Got the mc113 the next day.
Opened a chat but got nowhere. shut the door on me hard.

Am I right in assuming that the paypal account is also toast?
Havent had any comms from paypal.

Also opened a 2nd account a week after the first. Again all new data & different profile within Firefox portable.

Used a 3g modem and swapped sim cards, so was generating a new IP every time for both accounts.

Could this be the issue?

Not had any messages on the 2nd account, but havent tried to sell anything on that yet.

PayPal account is indeed toast for use on eBay other than buying. Had to added a bank account to the PP?

I wouldn't give up so easy. Try sending them an email.

really isnt worth it.
the chat transcript mentions stuff about abusing ebay, cannot be considered for re-instatement. There is no room for negotiation.
I've obviously messed up somewhere.

It happens, but the key here is many accounts. Make ten and maybe 7 won't be hit by MC113 if you're lucky

Not quite. You will get away with opening a secondary eBay account with that PP just to buy, but don't attempt to sell as they will close it down pretty rapid.

i'd call them. i sold a second hand item branded - but listed for 15.
got an email saying i was banned and all my accounts would be banned and that i was finished for life with ebay (or something like that).

they were nice and apologetic. they reinstated once i gave ID and proof of address + answered where goods where coming from and what i planned to list.

I've been creating a lot of ebay accounts in the past few months and listing items immediately as a test. The item I list would be medium/high risk. I get the MC113 within about an hour. The weird thing is I go on chat and get someone and they say I pose too big of a risk to the ebay community and my account cannot be reconsidered to be reinstated. However, I then try again later, get someone else and they might say the same thing. I try again though and get someone and then they just ask me the basic, items in my possession, future plans etc and they restore the account (MC042). I find once I get an MC042 account I can list as many items for as much as I want without getting the system restriction. It's like when I get someone who reinstates the account it overrides any future system blocks.

So my advice is to keep trying every few hours and ensure you're talking to a different agent each time so keep track of names etc. Try at different hours of the day as well because at certain times you'll be routed to an ebay centre in a different country to deal with your query. All of this is on live chat by the way.

I listed digitally delivered content as my first item in most of these cases (have done it with 9 accounts recently - all stealth) and have got 8 of them MC042'd. Only once did I get to talk to someone who restored the account straight away without telling me I'm banned forever. It's really down to who you get to talk to/their level of competence I guess!

Do you call or web chat?

The outcome seems pretty unequivocal.
'It's in our mutual best interest that we part ways'
And pointing me to the user agreement under 'abusing ebay'

Think I must have mucked up somewhere rather than it being the items I was selling.

Just discovered containers within Firefox portable to keep cookies,separate.
Think this might have been my downfall as Firefox shares cookies across profiles.

They are fine to use so long as you use them correctly.
