    Don't ask me why I made a paypal account with a fake name. I do have a reason for it, but I'd rather not go into explaining that. My question is, would paypal grant me a name change request if I submit the proper documentation (paypal asks for a photo ID and one of the following: a utility bill, copy of bank statement, or a copy of a credit/debit card statement). I would like to be able to do this so I can request a check from my permanently limited paypal account after 180 days are up and make the check in my real name (I can't withdraw to my bank account because I already have that bank account linked to 2 other paypal accounts and they won't let me add that bank to any more accounts), but can I do this considering I REALLY need to change my name (the name I entered isn't even close to my real name). If I can't do this, I will just go to my bank and create a new account and withdraw the funds there, but it would be more convenient for me to just request a check.

    If you change your name on any account they will put you in a special file.
