Thumbs up Help me open a play store account to post my apps!

Hello,

I have posted fan-apps of GTA5 and Iron Man on google play store and my developer account has been terminated due to copyright issues (although the apps were free and did not contain any advertisement, and it had very good user reviews with a 4.5+ average rate...) - but that's a lesson that I've learnt too late.
The play store website won't let me open a new account, at least not using the same name OR the same phone number OR the same credit card used before, etc - everything has to be different!
So I'm looking for an existing account to buy, from a developer who doesn't use it any more for example, if you know someone in this situation. Or if you are willing to buy a $25 account and sell it to me for $70 (I saw in other forums that some people already did it for that price), that would be ok too...
I'm working on several projects and I'd really like to be able to post them :-/

Thank you!

We won't help you break the EULA and potentially commit fraud.

EDIT: Just make a NEW account over at Amazon, Get-Jar, or something.

My app didn't even contain copyrighted material. It just had the wrong name... (and the wrong subject, it really was about the videogame)
But ok if it is not allowed on the play store, I won't post it again. I have other projects :-)

Right, but you're still breaking Google's terms of service by trying to find a way around their terms of service. Try the Amazon App store.

I'm sorry but that a very very Grey area. I don't think anyone here would be willing to help you with this.

Yeah, this sounds like something you will need to contact Google directly regarding. Contact them and maybe you can work something out.

Developer accounts from Google are not sellable. Trying to purchase an existing account to be able to post to the play store is something that could get you permanently banned, so don't do that. As suggested contact Google about the issue and their policy.

No more discussion on this subject, please. Thread closed.
