    I read many stories & threads on BHW of PayPal accounts getting frozen.

    I have 200$ sitting there...
    I had a 1k$ payout from last month... but I took 700$ to my bank. (it's unverified PP account though).

    Well since they can instantly ban me (paypal)... I have no place to go with my money at this moment (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/356066-money-making-tax-avoid.html)

    is it safe to keep my money in my CPA account (not requesting a payout until I found a solution...?)

    Ever considered your CPA networks non-Paypal payout options? If you are fully WhiteHat I would not worry about keeping money in your CPA account. Keep in mind though if they choose to ban you for whatever reason, you can most likely say goodbye to any money that you still had in the CPA account.

    Get a bank account and ask cpa networks to send payments through Wire Transfer or Direct Deposit.
    Cut the middle men(paypal) and be safe...

    I m doing this since years and i don't accept payments through Paypal. I use paypal only to send payments.

    verify yourself. and get all necessary documents ready. they will limit accounts at least once to get the documents from you to mark your account as safe.

    Is it legal to open multiple paypal accounts?
    If an account gets limited, is it still possible to transfer money to other accounts?

    The rule use to be that you are allowed to open less than 5 paypal accounts with no issues.

    I have heard stories of PayPal freezing accounts and then you can't retrieve your funds.

    Is there really no way for you to get a bank account, I'd think you could get one somehow. Wouldn't your parents or a relative sign onto one with you, especially if you're making money?

    don't keep your money in your cpa account. If its in paypal at least its in your name, and limitation can be resolved, and I once got my paypal account closed by paypal, and managed to lie through my teeth and force them to remove all limitations.

    CPA companies always reach a point where they stop paying and go belly up. The CPA business is fragile, and some people call it a ponzi scheme.

    Get your checks as soon as possible, and keep your money out of CPA companies, especially huge sums, as your affiliate manager might get hungry and try to hold all your commissions.

    Most networks are shady, and you can see this obvious fact from the offers they pass on to you to promote.

    What about AlertPay guys?

    If I transfer my money to Alterpay instead of Paypal... is there a risk of limitation with Alertpay?

    My Paypal acc once got frozen with $11k in it (it was from Ebay sales back in 06-07). I can't withdraw, send, transfer or do anything with my money. It was horrible since I only had like $130 in my bank at the time. Don't deal with Paypal, withdraw the money immediately. If you can't open a bank account cuz your under 18, ask your parents instead.
