    I just got an email from Paypal, they want me to provide them with my Business License, SSN, etc etc. Now, I want to just call them and clear it all up because I've had my account for years. Recently I been making a bit more than I usually do so the asked "why the raise in sales?"

    Has this happened to anyone else before?

    Wow I never got that and have been going pretty hard on PayPal for a year.

    How much were you making before and after the incident?

    Edit:
    Actually they did ask for a photo ID and SSN a while back, I just took a pic of my license and SSC and emailed to them with a frustrated letter and they cleared it up right away.

    The key to PayPal is to be consistent and try not to have a spike in sales but build volume over time.
    Allot of the people I know use stealth accounts for social media to spread out the money some.

    At this time the only thing to do is give PayPal what it wants.
    Let us know how it goes for you.

    Cheers,
