    Hi all,

    I had created a fake German account couple years ago (for some reason I can't think of anymore), and got it verified through a VCC. I had a 2500 Euros per annum limit however I ended up receiving more than that amount. The description of the limitation is;

    Code:
    XX. XYZ 2013: You have received ?2,500 or more in total payments to your PayPal account in this calendar year. PayPal is required by law to comply with European Union Anti-Money Laundering regulations by collecting information from customers when they reach this limit. Until you provide us with the information we need your account will be limited. You won't be able to send or withdraw any money using PayPal, however, you may still be able to receive payments. Please go to the Resolution Centre for more information on what you need to do. When PayPal limits an account, your funds may be held until we've confirmed your identification as per the User Agreement.
    I believe I need to add a bank account to get the funds withdrawn. Please let me know if there is something any one of you can do to help me out?


    Thanks!

    Any? Well, the thing is, I'm not German, nor do I live in Germany. I've not got any German bank account.

    unless you provide them with Government ID an proof of address your account will stay limited. You may also need a German bank account that needs to be in your name.

    I already have provided them with a 'fake' passport. I believe the guy who created the account did so, because I see it in my accounts' resolution centre. That being said, you guys would know of anyone who can provide me German bank accounts?

    You are in trouble. Germans will only allow you to withdraw money to the same person's bank account as Paypal name. They are very strict and report suspicious people to Police and Interpol.

    Germany Paypal account lets you add an US bank account to withdraw your funds apart from local bank. So just look for some who provides US VBA and make some deal.

    Yeah, they do, but I just felt to get around the ban, it'll be better if I instead could get a German account instead. If not, a US one is perfectly fine. Could you recommend me of someone who could get one done? I google'd it and came across this one site called OpenVCC but I'm not sure if they're trustable.

    What does your PP need to lift the ban? What is the resolution center asking for?

    I'm not sure, it doesn't ask for anything. It just says, "Your account is limited. Why?" There's no open case or anything. Could it be because my account's been limited for like a year now?

    Its better to give them a call if you can or write an email to their support asking what is need to be done in order to reinstate the account. You can only find a solution when you know the problem.

    I already have, I'm still awaiting for their reply. :)
    But in general, you think adding a US bank account should get rid of the limitation, right? Also, any idea about how OpenVCC is? They're relatively cheap.

    I think you will need to wait for their reply. Legally, they will need to make sure your bank account belongs to the same person and they will need to receive a valid German address proof from you. However, the US account might be a chance if your account has been limited for more than 6 months.
