    Default I need a photo ID for paypal!

    Hi

    This is not a dishonest request:

    I have just had a block placed on my paypal account, and they need a photo ID to get my funds released (all my money effectively). I can't drive and my passport has expired, plus to get a new one is an event, as I live on a small island, 1000 miles from Spain, which is the nearest Brit embassy.

    The paypal police want to see a scanned copy of an id, so I thought I'd apply for a fake international driving license, but that takes weeks also (very cheap though).

    All i want is a scanned version, not the hard copy,and once they approve me, I can throw it away.

    Any thoughts, or templates you may know of?

    I am led to this as the "fine people" at paypal seem to think that owning a valid passport is a legal requirement.

    Plus the Spanish government do not issue ID cars on this island, just the standard green residency certificate which paypal deems out of date (residency certificates do not have a validity or expiry).

    Sorry if this sounds like a weird request, but am at my wits end..

    Sean

    national ID in Spain is either a document with no photo (which paypal says is not valid), or mainland spain has ID cards, but haven't reached here yet.

    Just scan your expired passport and tell them thats all you have - can't expect you to give something you don't have!!

    ...and Photoshop the date to a valid one. Should literally take you 30 seconds.

    tried that, but my skills with photshop are questionable, plus would have to change other details as they have my original passport on file.

    And they electronically verify the passport number, so if it doesn't work, or comes back with the original details he can wave goodbye to the entire account

    I might just do that.

    Wasn't aware paypal could verify passport details, scary if they can.

    Thanks for the advice

    Please do not even attempt to have the passport photoshopped as you will loose your account permently for fraud.

    Here is a link to one such verification service, there are hundreds on google, used for nearly everything that requires a passport number:

    I agree. All what you have is expired passport, give it to them, and kindly tell them, that is all you have, and you cannot provide more. You can also tell them your situation, that your government don't do anything to give any facility on your small island.

    If you tell them kindly and politely, I hope they will take you easily.
    Hope this make sense.

    Paypal limited my account and asked for photo id, I sent them a copy of my
    birth certificate, a bank statement and a utility bill and told them that's all i have as i was out of the country so they could not do a phone verification to my home address and they released my account wthout a problem. They even sent me an email thanking me for my co operation.

    Hi oxonbeef and ajeeyunz.

    Have thrown myself on the good graces of paypal, and offered them 20 other potential IDs. Hope I get a good adjudicator this time.

    Thanks for everyones thoughts, and PMs.
