    Hey everyone, newish to BHW. I got into selling virtual goods and other things I've seen people do from this forum and wanted to not be personally associated to what I am doing (Nothing illegal, just because I dont want some of my customers to know who I am)

    So I created a business PayPal account (all real info and ID verified) and after 3 days my account was limited, then after 1 more day my account was banned without the chance to appeal it.

    I have spoken to PP support 3 times over 3 days and after a few minutes on the phone they give off the vibe that they just want me to f**k off and end the call. I dont have the reason why the account was banned but my personal account was banned from this (I have used my personal account every day for 3 years, didnt create the account under 18 and have never had any issues / chargebacks etc)

    1) is there a way to get both paypals back? (My business is not appealable, my personal is under investigation and just frozen)

    2) Why was I banned? (Im assuming it was something to do with virtual goods, however only 300-400£ was sent or received through the business paypal

    3) Why did my personal account become banned because of this?

    4) I am from the UK, obviously if I cannot create new paypal accounts because of this what do I do? I was looking at secondeyesolution but im assuming thats illegal? Id have to use fake name and address

    just get a mailbox address , new bank card, new sim, new email, and your good to go
    I doubt you would need a legit address, when does paypal ever send anything in the post or do a credit check? never.

    Oh, and new ip

    I have the same issue with my personal PayPal at the moment, but since it's fake details I used in opening it, I stand no chance.

    I have opened another one and moved on with life.
    I'd advise you get;
    1. A dedicated UK vpn or vps
    2. A new bank detail
    3. A new Sim card
    4. A new mail address
    5. A new house address
    That's all brother

    From your post i can't understand how much moneyz were lost.

    If you lost any and want them back, head to local PP office and speak with managers about that.

    I've had some problems with PP few months ago (opened 1 more PP acc in another country, and had problems with verification) and fixed em that way!

    P.S. PP support is plain useless. They sound like they know what they'r doing but in 90% of cases they wont solve nothing.

    What kind digital goods you are selling OP, I never had issue in my case, i even told PP what I am selling, maybe for me, you should be transparent to them.

    I was thinking.. Could I legally change my first name / update my passport photo (because photo is many years old) and try again? will they know it is me?
