    PayPal AU account setup in a fake name, fake address, fake everything.

    Received a $600 payment and instantly got frozen, damn it.

    PayPal AU is asking for:
    Proof of Postage (done, sent tracking numbers)
    Invoices showing I owned goods (photoshopped)
    Photo ID (license or passport, photoshopped)

    My question is, do they check the ID's?
    I can happily create a fake one, pretty good with PS, but worried that they might check them, then i'll be in big trouble!
    Although I'm not even sure if PayPal could do this, not being a bank, government, or anything except bullies.

    Any personal experience would be good :)

    They will call the numbers on the invoice, it there is no Telephone # or Address on the invoice. Well, they got you (personal experience).

    They check what ever they can.

    Sorry man

    Did you upload a license?
    Highly thinking about faking one of those, doubt they could check that?

    I think it will not hurt if you just send them the photoshoped documents and see what will happen next. That way, you will know steps that you need to take if same thing happens to your next or other paypal account. Trial and error is the best learning experience.

    From personal/past experience, you can send them anything and they probably won't look at it and approve you.

    A few accounts I tried a few different methods. Sent them a black and gray picture photo id with some *enhancements*. They told me I needed to send them a clearer picture. I never did. A diff acct. I also once sent them a utility bill and they permanently limited me. As long as it looks legit, it's hit or miss. If they ask for ssn, well then start over lol

    They dont have the resources to check all the documents submitted in detail.
    They cannot verify the DL. The only thing they'll do is call to check the supplier so provide your own number on the invoice.

    As long as it looks not PS'ed you'll be good.
    I've had only one rejection, and I've submitted docs more than 10 times.

    Christ guys...you really are smart business people aren't you? Running around every day setting up new accounts..making $20 then churning around again....STOP.TAKE A BEATH THINK. Is it worth it? Most of you are better of getting a job at Mcdonalds for all the "money" these methods are making you.

    Trick is to already have your documents prepared and really know how to run a stealth account.

    Paypal in some countries (Netherlands...) work with specific companies that check if your ID is legit or not... Read their TOS you can easily find the partners they work with. Wouldn't take the risk for $600.

    You can only reverse the payment if it was sent under good or services. This you cannot do if it was sent as personally owed.

    I have done this a few times, and I can say that they do not have the resources necessary to do a full check. Two of my PayPals were limited and I PS'd myself some passport, docs, etc and they passed within 2-3 days. However, I can't say that this will work for you. Try at your own risk. Also, if you are under a VPS then you should have nothing to worry about because they have no real information on you. At most, if you sent them the documents, they could say that they were rejected or something like that.
