    Hi, I'm wondering what does gaypal do to the limited/frozen account after 180 days has passed? Of course they will transfer the money out, but do they delete the account after that?

    Last year (or 2 yrs ago?) I had a gaypal account with a US bank account attached but gaypal limited the access. I lost the login information (not even the email) to the account and I'm pretty sure 180 days had passed but I don't know if gaypal deleted the account. Note: this account has had zero transaction record, it got frozen coz of IP slip.

    I'm wondering if I can re-use that US Bank account to apply for new gaypal account. I have several US bank accounts already attached to my paypals and lets just say I'm running out of one and I aint spending 100-300 for a new one.

    Inputs would be very much appreciated guys. Thanks!

    It wouldn't be wise to reuse it because if they happen to have a record of it, which they probably do, then they will just freeze the new account.

    I'm not sure they will allow it. I had the same issue credit card and
    when I tried to attach It to a new account I got the message that it
    was already linked to an account and refused.

    Come to think of it, when they freeze one account, is it really that easy to just open another up? I mean in your name with your real info?

    it's not really that easy to just "open another account".. i had to go thru the whole process of renting private proxy/vpn for each account n stuff, n i never use my real info for receiving bh payments. the only gaypal acct that i use real info with is my shopping account.

    thanks for the input guys. anyway, does anyone rely noe what happens to frozen/limited account after that 180 days? did they delete it?

    It is not reusable. Try to take it off, even though your account is frozen you can NOT have 1 same bank acct for 2 paypals.....and really try to take it off you won't and when you call they say it will come off when your account is closed. So you will of course ask them to close your account and they will NEVER close your account. They are pricks.


    Edit: when your account is frozen you are unable to edit or change bank account info.....:eek:
