I have a thought...from what I have read here it seems that 2 accounts can use the same paypal email for cash out. However, wont the administrators find that this might cause some people to create multiple accounts? Thoughts on this ?

It is possible to use 8 different email addresses with a PayPal account, and someone wanting to cheat will probably not use the same PP email. But I am sure that admins are also tracking IP addresses and have other ways to find cheaters. The only interest to create multiple accounts to earn money would be to create them to interact between these accounts and earn from the interaction. I am sure that many members would notice it quickly and would report it.

@Yh1001 Yup, it is lost somewhere in the PayPal Profile menu, and it is possible to have up to 8 emails connected to your account.

Admin keeps an eye on accounts like that for signs of fraudulent activity

I thought so, just wondering how many fraudulent cases can they possibly track

@Yh1001 It really isn't too hard...lots if users will also notice it eventually and flag them

I think you can only have one account here on myLot. Unless you are married or living together and use the same bank information, I think that would be the only way you could have two accounts with the same PayPal account. Even so, I think PayPal only has one per person.

Yes , one pay pal account per person, But I was wondering if people can choose to transfer their money to others if they wish by entering their PayPal account information

@Yh1001 There is a way to do that on the PayPal site.

They would have thought about that if they allowed it.

@Yh1001 I don't know by keeping tracks of the user activity? Along with keeping track of the time, it can be detected.

The administration will be checking if the accounts are fraud. They will be banned before knowing it.

I think using the same PayPal email here is not allowed. I tried using my sister's PayPal bu I was rejected.

I think it's allowed though! I have read some past discussions. Why was it rejected?

@Yh1001 .. It says the account is already in use by another user. I think I have to open my own account. My sister is not using her paypal account anymore that's why she told me to use it but it was not accepted.

I can't imagine how to manage multiple accounts. On other site we are allowed to create multiple accounts but I cannot even manage one.

Honestly i can hardly take care of one account, nevermind various. Some people just have nothing to do at all. Or They try and gain money by using there accounts against each other.
