    So, I fucked up. A few months back, I turned my PayPal into a verified business PayPal. Here's the issue, I'm 15. It asked me for social security and tax id and stuff like that. I kinda of just threw down random numbers and it was accepted. The paypal only has fake info, aside from my first name and phone number. The address, last name, social security, tax id, etc are all fake. I'm from the United States, though my friend is 19 and from the U.K. He told me that paypal sends out a statement of some sort to the federal government at the end of each year. He mentioned my family receiving a fine and possibly having to go to court. I didn't really think anything of it when I did it, but now im really scared. I'm not sure where to post this. So I came here. Yeah, I kinda can't sleep cause of this. The paypal has 50 dollars on it and I don't really want to lose that either. Er, any sort of help would be nice. I'm not sure if my friend is messing with me, if I really fucked up, etc. i know I fucked up, but can someone tell me what is going to happen? I'm literally so scared rn. I WAS NOT PREPARED

    Why did you turn it into a business account?
    What are you selling ?

    You need to look at the service from @secondeye who may be able to help you out, but it's not free option.

    Welp, I'm not really sure why I turned it into a business account. It was a few months ago. It either had something to do with csgo or these prepaid cards my friend was giving me. Each had 5 dollars and I added like a 10. I'm pretty sure it was that.
    I don't really want to dig myself a deeper hole, either. I'm a 15 year old girl. I just want to know what could possibly happen and what to do/how to fix it

    Let secondeye message you once they see this post.
    Avoid others sending you messages, offering to help you via skype etc on the cheap, as you'll get scammed by them.

    Sorry, just updated my comment. I don't want to get in anymore trouble than I'm already in. I just want to fix all of this the best I can. I was hoping someone could tell me what to expect, since everything I could find online related to someone who wasn't a stupid minor like myself. @MisterF

    Calm down, at most they'll permanently ban your account. They'll probably just limit it if they become suspicious.

    In regards to PayPal sending the federal government documents:

    If you're worried about the $50, either withdraw it or send it to someone you trust (i.e., not a random guy on Skype) and have them withdraw the money for you.

    I've never dealt with fraudulent PayPal accounts, so take this with a grain of salt.
