    So, I've been making some money doing some different things, getting money on my account from different sources. Today I decided to spend all I got on the account on a nice upgrade for my PC. I ordered 2k worth of stuff from a site, now heres the first problem I get, since I'm in the EU, the company cannot pull the money before the ship, which they wont for another few days, but more on that later. I go out to eat with the family and get home and try to login to paypal, only to be greeted by a nice little message saying that my account is locked and i have to confirm it's my account. Now why this? Well ofcourse! I am retarded enough to be spending this kind of money away from home, in a different country - I am on holiday in spain and I usually live in Denmark! So they do this. But the worst part is that the confirm my identity i NEED to use Picture id. Phone call or Phone message isn't avaliable as a choice. Now they say they've made some limitations to my account, but I cannot get past that first page. Now I really hope that this will not make the company unable to take the money once they want to ship, but I am scared it will. I want to know what you guys might know and any advice? I cant see a possible way for me to get fake ID to do this one, as the person my paypal is in dosen't exist...

    So really the big questions i have are:
    When I get home to my usual IP and PC will paypal let me identify using my phone again?
    Will the company i bought from be able to take the money despite this limitation to my paypal?

    Thanks :)

    You're probably fucked.

    It sucks, but PayPal doesn't like people using false information on their accounts.

    When there is money involved, fake information is bad juju.

    Uhmm so, I requested a password change, got the email, clicked the link and suddenly to prove my identity to be allowed password change I could choose security questions, changed pass and I am now fully inside my paypal again. Crisis averted I guess?

    oh wow,a re you telling us that big companies in the cash transfer business don't like it when you use false information? really? no way, who would have expected that?
    Srsly though dude, why would you want to have a fake paypal id anyway? you live in DENMARK it's not like it's hard to get your account accepted when you live in a country like that.

    I could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure if you fail to complete the verification you paypal will be banned, and the money will be held for 180 days. After 180 days is up, you can withdraw to any bank. Although they say it's supposed to be in your name, you can really just withdraw to any name. It sucks, but you will get your money eventually.

    The aspkin forums are frequented by people who sell knockoff merch on ebay, and they deal with this kind of problem regularly.

    Right, the whole false information is kindof for 2 reasons. I'm 17 and My first account in my own name recieved close to the 1800 euros required before they come asking for ID if in the EU, which meant that i didn't want to go over te 1800 which resets next year. I mean, since all I need to unlimit this paypal is a picture ID I can obviously, well you know... Wether or not that's worth it will be seen

    I would have just kept unjustifiable money for myself if I had owned a company as big as PayPal, haha. Would they be inclined to release very large sums of money though?

    It's not a question of whether they are inclined to or not, Paypal is a large publicly traded company. They are under scrutiny to ensure they handle client funds ethically. Because their TOS was violated, they are absolutely within their right to ban the account. They are also within their right to hold the money for a period of time to ensure the funds were not procured via fraud. One the waiting period passes and it becomes clear that the funds were earned legitimately, they are under legal obligation to return them to the rightful owner.

    Thanks for the in-depth explanation! Although I still believe these crooks circumvent the laws. :)

    Your best option will be to contact support, and this time just give your real info, especially if it's your main money account. But to be honest i think that you lost everything on that account, because you cannot prove that you are that fake person.

    Don't listen to anyone who says you loss. Take it from a PayPal expert like myself its very easy to verify everything. I love it when PayPal limits me. I do it purposely because after I verify everything my account becomes 10 times stronger. Please don't contact me for info or to sell you anything. This is the part where you research & learn for yourself. Knowledge is power! I learned from trial & errors.

    It's not that hard to photoshop the necessary documents. Though I agree with what other people have been saying, what's the point in using a fake name in the first place?

    Paypal is known to limit any account at anytime they want and nothing anyone can do about it. Those of us that been in this game for a long time know what I mean. Only way to come back to PayPal is new identity because your real identity is blacklisted. The more accounts you have the better prepared you are if an account gets limited. This means you can still make money if things go bad.

    Though if you have real documents, there shouldn't be anything to worry about right? I've had the same PayPal account for around 5 years and never had any issues.
