This is how they do it;
They create a new blog, do every necessary stuff and apply with another gmail account and also provide another bank details that is different from their previous one.
But when Google AdSense get to know this they ban the account immediately and this can result in having non account again.
So it is advisable to maintain just account and put all the possibility effort to increase your earnings.
