    Hey there!
    I have a few questions about paypal. I have a verified paypal with my real info and bank account linked etc. But then I also have a fake paypal which I use to receive and then send money to my real paypal. I'm using a VPS so there's no way they can see any connection between my real and fake paypal. However, since I'm sending payments from the fake paypal to my real paypal every day - isn't it suspicious? I mean I'm receiving money from the same "person" all the time. The amount I'm transferring is usually around $5-30. Another question; to avoid account limitation, should I send the money with "Goods & Services" option or "gift" option?

    Edit: I forgot to ask something. If my fake paypal gets limited, is there a high risk that my real paypal will get limited as well?

    I appreciate any answers. Thanks.

    I'm not certain of the exact things Paypal look for, but as long as you're only accessing one account from 1 device, it shouldn't cause a problem. Certainly always sending money as a gift is more likely to raise an alarm as they don't make as much money, however the amounts are likely so small they won't worry about it.

    With regard to banning both accounts, that would only happen if they establish that they are both yours.

    Personally, I have my own Paypal and my wife her her own Paypal as well. I sometimes logon to both accounts from my own PC, and often send her money as a gift. The difference is that her account is not a fake account, it has all real info as well.

    Edit - as an afterthought, the most likely course of action they would take is to limit your fake account and ask for identification documents to be sent to them.

    Hello
    I open US Paypal account recently and i verified it, but paypal send me a message which reads below

    Your account has been limited until we hear from you

    We need your help resolving an issue with your account. To give us time to
    work together on this, we've temporarily limited what you can do with your
    account until the issue is resolved.

    We understand it may be frustrating not to have full access to your PayPal
    account. We want to work with you to get your account back to normal as
    quickly as possible.

    What's the problem?

    Since this is a new account, we'd like some additional information to help
    confirm your identity.

    How you can help

    It's usually pretty easy to take care of things like this. Most of the
    time, we just need a little more information about your account or latest
    transactions.

    To help us with this and to find out what you can and can't do with your
    account until the issue is resolved, log in to your account and go to the
    Resolution Center. They ask proof of identity and eligible of the valid of the address i used

    I dont know what caused problem ........... The name i used is Lewis Andrew and the virtual address is from this site Pls can i do send mail to me or to my BHW message arhcieves
    Thanks

    I use several accounts on my name, with different emails. Not a single problem for years. Why to use a fake name?
