Actually, I would probably take a different approach, and start a new "division" or company that sells the same products but is set up only to be a Google Trusted store. Would be a different site altogether.
And you don't think that G has the means and the incentive to tie the two together ?
To make keeping G "in the dark" about who owned what work, you'd have to use offshore "blind" shell company registration , multiple servers, multiple bank accounts, multiple IPs to log into your different sites etc etc ..
That is a lot of expense and daily / weekly running around to avoid what can be avoided merely by not going nearer than the 10 ft pole length..:)
If you didn't ..couple of years down the line maximum before your non "trusted" site gets a severe drop off in traffic from G..and your trusted one gets told it has to give even more info to G , possibly be hosted on G approved servers ..and will be in a pay to be listed ( Oh yeah ..I forgot they just did that last bit ) shopping area of the serps..with additional CPC only access to your store front ..
And G will tell you how you did , what was your traffic, and send you the difference between your ad spend, hosting charges, listing charges and your sales..
G waves just enough "free services" at the beginning of each phase, in front of webmasters for many of them to take the "free" and then merrily or fearfully weave it into their own collars, and forge their own shackles and chains, which then pass the control straight back to "slave/serf master in Mountain View"..
