    Well i was trying to get my social security card but i have just heard because of the government shutdown you can't get it (one of the requirements for paypal verification). What will paypal do if people can't get the necessary documents to verify their accounts because of the shutdown?

    Tell you sorry for the inconvenience but you must wait until you can get the documents.
    As this is only going to be a temporary shutdown, I doubt paypal is going to create an easy way to allow people to exploit their verification process. For those that need to legitimately verify their paypals, they are just out of luck for a little while.

    Hope you're right. I sold all the USD I had 3 days ago, just for the case things go unexpected.

    USD is safe haven, so if there really was a crisis, it would go up in value like crazy! Now its getting weak, because the shutdown wasn't as bad as expected, when it comes to consequences. So if you wait for a "disaster" to happen, then start buying USD.

    Why do you have to provide a copy of your social security card? My daughter just got paypal and she didn't have to do that. Do they give you other options?

    I wouldnt call it a safe haven. Nothing is safe haven, and 99% of losers on the Forex market can confirm that. Its not the first time in history indeed. However, you never know how the market will react, and I prefer to be on the safe side.

    When you make $700 - $1000 paypal will ask for identification which includes ssn, ssc, id, and utility bill.

    They never asked me and I make sales like that. Do you have regular paypal or the one for merchants? I have the merchant one and they are pretty good. I have a credit card merchant account too and use both. Do you accept credit cards? They don't ask for that stuff.

    I have a premier account and i asked paypal why they wanted this information and they told me because of new irs rules they have to verify your identity. Did you already add you social # and bank to your account?

    I'm sure they'll request Photo ID's and things like that. The government wont be down for long, people are thinking they can get away with a ton of stuff just because certain parts of the government will be down.

    I have a premier account too and had to go through with the same bull shit a while back, but there was no shut down at that time. Btw, does the government being shut down mean the FEDERAL bureau of investigation is also taking a break? What about the CIA and secret service?

    Only thing i know is the politicians still get payed for taking a vacation while working class people (i mean people who work for the government) get delayed payment (including soldiers).

    I agree 100% but when your parents loose your documents you're screwed. Not my fault i have irresponsible parents.

    Its safe haven between currencies, thats a fact. But during real crisis times, money will be worthless, anyway...doesn't matter if its in the bank or under the pillow. :)

    Have you ever tried to start a camp fire with money? It's not completely worthless. :)

    Safe Haven and currencies shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence.

    Given, we all know what the US is going to do:

    Print more paper fucking money from thin fucking air.
