    My paypal account just received a restriction and they are asking for photo ID (Full drivers's license, National identifier card, Passport). This account contains £200, and i am not allowed to use it on ebay and other transfers.
    I do not have any of those identification because this paypal account is an alternative account which i only use when i trade with sellers in forums and other unsafe places online, I used another name and another address to this paypal account.

    The reason i used an alternative account is because i know that paypal does not support digital goods online and if a seller were to scam me, i could simply open a charge back.

    Is there anyway i can remove the restriction to the account efficiently without having to forge a fake Photo ID, it is the only solution i can think of which i am very reluctant to do.

    In your last few sentences.... Thats your answer my friend, unless you want to take a loss on that 200. Paypal is becoming much more stricter. You did read about paypal and Ebay separating too didnt you? I wonder if this will loosen up the restrictions. I believe this is anothe rreason why sellers in Asia opt for western union, moneygram, and bank account transfer... At the same time the downside is possible scammers...

    Will i be into trouble though? if i were to pick from Full drivers's license, National identifier card and Passport, the best option would be a national identifier card or the drivers license, but will they be able to find it they are actually genuine or not?

    Go send a banking card, a copy of an income statement and a college id from recent years.

    You could try changing someone else's picture and name if you can to remain stealthy.

    Yes you would be in trouble, if paypal finds out that the ID is forged, most contries has laws against this and in most cases you'd be facinga long time behind bars (not the drinking kind thoug), wether or not paypal would spot if it's forged is another issue wich would probably come down to a lot of things like how good the forgery is, how much they care to check it and how they check it.
    If I where you I wouldn't go down that route, but that is just my oppinion.
