    Hi there,

    I have a genuine Paypal account which I have had for ages.

    I wanted to set up a Credit Card on the account, so asked my brother to get one for me, which he did. I tried to set up the credit card on the Paypal account, and I think they make a small deposit and there is a number that you are meant to verify?

    NOW my brother moved away, and ALL his stuff is in storage so I will NEVER be able to get a look at his bank statements to see the number.

    Can I ring Paypal to ask them to cancel this verification?

    Can I add another card on the account and forget about this one? IF so, can one of the VCC's you see for sale do this?

    Thanks for any feedback,

    Jerra

    All banks and credit card companies let you view your statements on the web. You just need your brother to set up web access and give you the password. (Or were you doing this without actually telling your brother?)

    I don't see the problem.
    If your brother gave you the CC then he can tell you the two values.

    If not you don't deserve help imho.

    Smells bad to me. Where is your brother in all this, did you ask him before you asked us? It's easy to have him set it up on the internet and tell you what it says. Unless you didn't tell him? Good luck--paypal won't talk to you about his verification. The best you can do is cancel that one and get a new vcc. And, dude? DON'T SCAM YOUR FAMILY!

    Why don't you get your own credit card?

    lol

    I certainly DIDN'T scam my family!!

    My brother got the credit card on my behalf, and with his agreement. BUT he moved away to the Falkland Islands almost straight away, BUT he packed the statement with the verification on it, so I can't get it.

    I think I'll cancel and get a VCC.

    THANKS
