    Hi BHW,

    The past 10 minutes has seen me look for information on this forum about PayPal and how to receive money without PayPal "catching you" and subsequently limiting your account. It seems the consensus is that this will be inevitable regardless of having a business or personal account (especially a personal account).

    So here I am, a newbie, curious on how to use PayPal best as a vehicle to receive money without facing issues for as long as possible. Any advice would be appreciated even if just a sentence. Particularly though, how should I go about using my personal PayPal account? Would receiving a payment of $2000 be an instant flag? How about receiving $50 every 3 days? Would I be best to start a business account or be a bit cheeky and use my friends PayPal accounts so as to limit a chance of any problems.

    I am very appreciative for any help
