    Have you tried contacting them? Did they send you any emails stating any reasons? More info would help.

    With the account not being in your name it makes it very difficult to get your money. Do you still talk to the person who's name it is in? Get them to contact PayPal and send in all the documentation they require.

    Is it a stealth account or does an actual person exist with the name that the account is on?

    Has it only become limited or has it been terminated (and funds frozen for 180 days)?

    What (if anything) is PayPal requesting?

    Without answers to these questions it's impossible for anybody to help you.

    Good luck getting it back, get a hold of the guy that the PP account is under and hope he can solve the problem.

    Hi
    thanks for reply.

    1. I belive person does not exist

    2. PayPal asked for

    - photo ID [provided]

    - proof of address [provided]

    - Verify cc on file [provided]

    - Add Bank Account [NOT provided]

    3. I think funds are frozen as I got an email from pp that says apeal has been denied..

    and that they've decided to "close" my acc

    Does this mean decison is irreversable ?

    Thanks again guys for your help

    Yep, this means that they've decided to terminate your account and they will hold your funds for 180 days, after which they'll either send you a cheque or wire you the funds (whichever you prefer).

    There are some services out there that promise to retrieve the funds from this kind of accounts, but if you do go ahead and use one of them then make sure it's someone that comes highly recommended and/or only pay for the service once you've seen results (had the funds released).

    If PP will still let you access the account, add a working bank account to it (the account doesn't have to have the same name as on the PP). After 180 days, you can withdraw to the bank account. If PP will NOT let you access the account, it's time to get help to get to the funds, or a lawyer.

    paypal sucks, sorry to disappoint but i don't think you will get your money back. Happened to me also, but with a smaller amount
