    So apparently i realised the VPS i was using was a bad one and even though iptrace shows my IP as a US ip address, paypal still sees it as an Indian ip address (since i called up paypal and found that out). Infact even payza saw that.

    So now when i try to make a payment through my paypal account, it asks to call me to verify its me. However i dont have that number anymore. there is another area in resolution center where i can confirm my identity. however one of the questions asks me this.

    "Confirm that you're the account holderPlease select the last name that you have most recently been associated with"
    and the various choices.

    How the hell do they know what people i have been associated with, when all they know is my fake address and fake name. none of the names they mentioned matched the payment records. i am all confused

    I hope you don't have a lot of money in there.

    I hope you didn't use the VPS itself to check the IP. By the looks of it you did tho. Also, I would recommend changing any password you ever used on that thing.

    Not sure on what to do with paypal tho. Perhaps get your payment records and proof of address like utility bill ready to then call them from a new number? People change number more often than you think and you could claim you didn't update it.

    Hope this helps.
