Default Need advice from experienced EBAYers and Paypalers

A friend of mine has a connection to import, what I believe are, 'factory varient' Nike sneakers from China. He asked me to help him move them, and we began to set up accounts on EBAY. The shoes are hot, and there is a lot of interest out there for them, and a whopping profit margin. After hooking up a paypal account, and moving some shoes, I get a notice from Paypal requesting inventory information, and the $ in our account is frozen until we provide documents. Furthermore, Paypal will not authorize us to use them to accept $ on current listings until the matter is resolved.

Questions:
1) Is PayPal doing this b/c of pressure from big companies(Nike) to control the underground market?
2) Should we provide the documentation we received from our supplier in China, or just make up some BS about having acquired the shoes at some SWAP meet, and say we don't have the documentation?
3) To what extent do you think Nike monitors EBAY, and pursues those who are doing what we are doing?

Thanks in advance.....

I've never had any of these kind of problems when I've previously counterfeited footwear and sold it over the internet.

Maybe some of the other people in the plethora of people on this forum who knock off designer shoes can help.

are you saying this b/c you have some specific information/experiences that relate to my issue? If so, I posted this question b/c I want USEFUL INFORMATION. If you don't have any, then don't bother responding in the future. It's counter-productive.

Seriously. Dude, forget about the money and go get a lawyer.

What is happening to OOT? I thought SIIHP was bad, but this is just plain ridiculously illegal and retarded bad.

wow that's pretty awesome.

Basically I would say you are [censored]. paypal is going to keep your seized money because while having you profit from an illegal act would be wrong it is perfectly reasonable for them to do so. I should mention 2 things #1 [censored] paypla #2 I hate paypal.
