I was wondering the other day...what happens if you win a bid on an item and you give them a fake address and don't pay them?

They IP ban you and you can't buy stuff from E-Bay again.

That seems like a slap on the wrist. Can't you just change your IP address?

This.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

They can figure out that you're doing that, just like they do on UG.

also, they have your bank account and can figure out who you are and can sue you for fraud and breach of contract (failing to pay)

dont mess around on ebay, you can get in alot of trouble if you piss someone off.

You will get caught by Hilary Clinton and she'll torture you for about two hours. Then they'll take all your money, your girlfriend and your cat and leave to buma-livion.

lol DSL gives you a "lease" on different IP addresses for the day, but it doesn't matter. Ebay probably has some kind of program that logs all activity and if there is fraudulent activity, you'll get banned. There's no warning system like on other sites.

Normally, people won't send you the item until they get their payment. Back in the day, you could purchase the item with a personal check or money order, that's getting pretty rare. Everything is either Paypal or credit/debit now.

Once I accidently bid on two items that were the exact same, and forgot about the other one I bid on. Anyways I only use ebay like twice a year. I recently got on and Ebay had given me a 6 month suspension probation thing for "failing to pay" the thing is, its not really a crime since the company only ships after payment goes through.
