Hi from Just Answer. I'mCustomer and can assist.
Using an online persona or DBA is legal. You are banking legally, but selling under acquired user history. Legal, not ethical.
eBay likely would close your purchased account once they know, but it's not illegal. They will say you breached their user agreement, but that's not illegal.
Fixing the error with eBay is easy. There is nothing yet reported to IRS, so there is no issue with them.
Thanks again for using Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
