    Well after 1 month off selling on eBay and saving up 1000+ dollars for IM, and personal purposes my account gets limited due to me being underage....

    I've already past the point of raging, and now trying to find a solution to at least get my money sooner than later(180 days).

    So here my question. Is there any possible way to change ownership of my account? For instance i have a brother who is of age to own a Paypal account who lives with me. If i change the name of the account to his name, and the SSN wouldn't he own the account and therefore be able to provide Paypal with proof of his age.

    Has anyone tried something similar to this?

    I would call them and try to arrange it and have your older brother or father on an extension if you can.
    PayPal's system can be automated and funky but if you're friendly, honest and open with customer
    service you can get pretty far.

    On the bright side, 1 month selling, $1000 is a great start! But dealing with paypal is like pulling teeth, i dont think you will have too much success trying make arrangements with them. I would recommend that you sell again for a month and make another $1000. Just make a stealth Ebay and paypal , there is a lot of info if you search on how to make 'stealth paypal'. You should be able to replicate what you did before, or even better, but this time be more careful and withdraw your money before it reaches past $500. Good luck

    True That. I called Paypal up , and in just makes me even angrier speak with them considering how unhelpful some of them are.

    I plan to start over again, but the thing is now i have to start from absolutely nothing considering i was stupid enough to not transfer any money to my bank or anything. First thing i am going to do though is call them up again, and try to transfer owner ship. In my head i think it should work, but you never know what they will try to do.
