    So let's say that I create few fake paypal accounts, all of them in VPS so they are not linked to my real paypal account by any chance. Those paypal accounts are used to funds fb ads accounts but i will be funding those paypal accounts with my real paypal account. There is a huge chance that fake one's will get limited and I will be asked to send them documents, can anything happen to my real paypal account?

    What do you mean by "funding"? Because if it's sending money from your legit PayPal to your fake ones, it's not the wisest idea, i'm afraid. All the accs can be linked, but even if that doesn't happen and if those fake accs won't be verified, you won't be able to use them for too long for receiving money, eventually you'll need to verify them sooner than later. I think there's no exact amount, what you can receive/send with an unverified account, but i think the limitation will happen within the first few transactions. Maybe try it with only one fake account and low amounts.

    And yes, if the fake accounts get limited, it's almost 100% sure, that your legit account will be limited too, but i guess that's not really a big issue, because you can lift the limitation by submitting the documents PayPal asks for (which usually is a copy of your id card/passport and proof of address=utility bill), which you must have, if it's your legit account.

    In short, i think it's not a good idea, because the fake accs will be limited and the money can get stuck in there for 180 days.

    The solution would be to purchase stealth accounts along with documentation, so when shit happens, you can lift the limitation with the documents.

    I do not get it tho. Why would that limit my real account.. So if you are using a fake account and I send you money, why would my real account get limited just because I sent you money? Did it happen to you or you are just guessing?

    Your real account might get limited sooner by doing that sort of funding. They will ask what you are selling, where you are getting those items, etc...and if you say it's a digital product they will probably consider it high risk account and permanently limit it. Remember, they could give 2 craps about accounts because they have millions of users making them money. I'd suggest actually sending packages with tracking to those addresses if you are going to do this. Just like an empty envelope with tracking. Should be cheap.

    My real account is fully verified with documents, bank and everything.. I will be sending the money to the fake accounts just to pay fb, so no high risk transaction I guess?

    I'm not sure about why it happens, but yes, it happened to me before once. :) And i was using only 2 accounts, my legit one and a fake one. In my opinion starting to send money to multiple unverified, fake accounts from your legit account is generally not a good idea. Maybe try it with one with low amounts and see what happens.

    I wouldn't worry much about the legit account, when and if it gets limited, you can lift that limit. The bigger problem is that your money will get stuck in the fake ones, if you can't lift the limits, which you won't be able to do, if you don't have the documents.

    @philly3: OP can send personal payments, not just payments for buying goods or services, but that's also just asking for trouble, if you do mostly or only transactions like that.

    More than likely your real account will be fine. It's the others that will probably get limited.

    fake ones are verified with bank account and vcc so they are not really unverified I guess.. Sucks that happens to you, but I don't really care for the money being stuck, mostly I just don't wanna lose my legitimate account

    I see, i think you don't have to worry about your legit account, you can unlimit it, if shit happens. They won't ban you for this.
