    My girlfriend's Paypal account got suspended a 2 days ago and she got pissed off just becasue she got a 5 disputes from the ebay buyer and was suspecting that this was a fraud or something but the thing is that she has been on this account for like 1 year and not like 2 weeks!. She was being treated as though she is new and intend to defraud people';s money which pisses her off. She was told by the staff on the phone that they will NEVER do business with her again meaning that she can't use PAYPAl forever

    There is a big problem here, becasue since she is NOT allowed to use PAYPAL again, that means even she open anotehr bank account to register in PAYPAL is no use becasue if she uses another bank and gets caught, she will get suspended again which is not hard since the name identifies it or something....is that true?

    If so, anyone have some solution or any suggestions for her to open another one without being caught?

    Tell her to keep calling Paypal on a daily basis if necessary.. If the rep can't help have her ask for a supervisor, or someone in resolutions, or someone in the review dept.. She should be very calm and polite the whole time.. Eventullay someone there will release her account.. I've been there done that.. Just this week in fact....

    ok you want to get around this problem. I have had a similar incident happen to me and here is a way around it. your gf goes into her bank and says she wants to open a new account under her "young 2 year old cousin's name" (make something up, my ones jessica smith lol) if they ask why? tell them its for her education. the teller will not need to see her or prove that she exists. also just to clarify ask the teller that you want to be able to make payments into the account with your "Cousins" name, or just ask it in a subtle way. the account will still be under your gf name but also you will be able to use your cousins details. ie paypal. and there should be no suspicion from paypal that she owns it.

    Hey guys, thanks for the answers

    Sounds like it is not as worse as she thinks

    Becuase the staff told her "if you intend to open a new account again, we will freeze your account" bla bla and making this threat.

    It seems like the experiences you all have had had no problems whatsoever

    I guess this is like suspended ebay???? Where they say you don't open a new ebay account, or otherwise you get suspended again but however, most of t hem get away with opening a new account as they use new techniques such as use different credit card, using fake registration name or even different registration country etc


    So want to ask again........are you saying IF she opens another new account, different credit card but same name is still fine with it???? Becasue she is concerned like some of you said, it happened to you before and no problem with it.......but maybe one day....when PAYPAL fills with many money and wants to withdraw it.....BANG....freezes again and therefore those money cannot be taken out since she got caught for using it again when she is not supposed to??????

    if its your GRF just open a paypal for her and let her use your account too.

    if its about how to open a paypal account which was used for fraud you actually wont find a solution here.

    Sorry, we are still not in the mature relationship period since we are together just for a few months. Maybe I will later soon but for the time being, we are financially independant and I am glad she understands or otherwise I don't mind paying for meals, buying presents etc for her

    And no, this is not used for fraud. Who wants to use a PAYPAL account for fraud when they know that they can risky their account suspended indefinitately?

    So that's why I am helping out her out if anyone can give some possible answers in case this is serious matter

    Bull Pu$$y if they don't... They held $5k of mine for 3 months on one account which was/is a business account and has been established since 2000.. All because I could not find 2 tracking numbers from 90 days prior....
