do you guys actually know anyone that got caught by ebay for doing that?

I was a long time ago when I didn't realize it was easily catchable (I was "young and stupid" although I basically just apologized to eBay and promised not to do it again, they let me keep my account and I don't think they would have been so kind these days).
I knew of someone who had also been caught with conducting business outside, regularly. Didn't get caught the first time, but once you do, they can easily backtrack to see if its been a habit. The alternative is of course having a web store along with an eBay store to help naturally generate business outside, honestly.
If you are a regular seller, I personally do not believe 100, 200, or even a 500 dollar sale outside the lines of eBay is worth saving the 10% at the risk its poses.
Now, I've had SF members contact me via eBay, and then follow up with PM's here, without giving any indication or speculation via eBay messages about a potential outside sale. In that case, if I feel all my bases are covered, I have no problem sending an invoice through PP to them.
