    I have a US paypal account with $4 in it. It's not a big deal but I can't get it out because I'm an idiot and didn't realize that I had to verify my paypal account if it's a USA one before I can send anything...

    Is there a way anyone knows of that works these days for this? Or should I just write it off?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Yea I know it's only $4! But it's the principle you know? I don't want paypal to end up with my money if there's something I can do about it...

    I had like $14 in there for 4 years for the same thing. I'd just trade it for something or buy something with it, maybe get some currency for a game you like to play, or even donate it to charity, since it's the holidays and all. Maybe you could buy a PVA with it, etc.

    I'll buy your $4

    Accept paypal?

    You know a long time ago someone asked Jesus, should we pay tax. Jesus show up a coin and ask, who is it in the coin? Caesar. So render to Caesar what is caesar.

    There are several interpretation.

    One of it is if you don't like paypal's fee don't use paypal. The same can't be said about empires due to non consensual elements. Still we can count killing each other as "natural" state and people need to mutually agree not to do that first for peace is achieved. Hence, perhaps a "similar" sense can be inferred. Still we have choices. Against non consensual acts, we have choices too. We can choose to flee, we can fight, and we can ponder why the hell enemies are stronger anyway and yield. There is always choice :) Thinking that way makes me feel powerful. Whatever makes me feel powerful are usually things that makes me indeed powerful for it open my eyes to see and understand power better.

    Hey singingsleep, that's a great idea - but how can I give it to charity? It looks like it's completely stuck. I'd like to do that though if possible.

    teguh123 - I think you may have hit the Christmas liquor a bit early this year?!

    Jees, why are people so freakin' mean?

    • I said it wasn't a big deal
    • I said it was just the principle of leaving it with Paypal which sucks
    • It might be useful in the future to know how to get money out of a US account
    And even if the $4 did matter to me, what's the point of taking the mickey out of someone who is that in need?

    $4 is nothing. Because time = money. You'll spend time researching how to get it out, try to get it out, and wait to get it out. Instead of doing other things to make money. Instead of making this thread, you could have spent the time making it back and more.

    Yes, I could have. But as I already said, it may be useful to know how to do it for other times, when perhaps I will have other $ in a US account.

    Thats the thing about im, you can make money all day, if you worked a 9-5 and had a set salary it might be worth it because yo wouldn't be losing time, instead of spending an hr getting it go out and make 40???

    I spent 20mins on the phone last night releasing $96.34. I feel ya, I really wanted that cash.

    Everyone seems to be of the opinion that its just $4.
    In my opinion $4 is $4 and regardless its not gaypals money, it belongs to stung.
    $4 can get you a couple of rewritten articles, a few .info domains, a couple of hours worth of outsourcing work, a CL pva, and maybe even a fucking partridge in a pear tree.
    All these things could turn around and make you a few hundred bucks except maybe for the partridge ( but I do hear they are delicious)!
    If I had 5 grand in my pocket and gaypal had my 4 bucks I would spend 4 hours to get it back. Not because I'm greedy....because its MY 4 BUCKS!
    I wish I could help you out stung but I can't. Maybe someone could chime in with a solution for ya.
    Happy Festivus or whatever yall celebrate.

    Thanks jdog37, that's exactly the point. It's the principle.

    Anyhow, after some looking I have found no way to do it. I even tried to close my account and donate the money automatically to charity, but it won't even let me do that. lol!

    Oh well, I'll probably give it to a US friend.

    seems like you just want to make alot of noise about this.

    [​IMG]

    Your principles seem a little off if you think about how you could of spent your time instead of trying to get 4$ out of paypal... you could of made more money from running campaigns than screwing around with gaypal.

    Just saying, paypal isn't the school bully that took your 4 bucks and you should kick his ass and get it back on principle... its a corporation designed to take from you any chance they get :)
