    I have an account on Paypal that I signed up for in my Childhood (have not used for quite a while, but they still send e-mails - I don't have any funds in that Paypal account or anything) so can I signup anew? (Personally, I don't even want to touch that account. I want to start anew.)

    If I do sign up anew, I have a question. Do I use a real name, similar name (for instance if my name was John Doe, then I could sign up under John Dae?), or fake-name? I am in U.S so is that even legal? Please help and offer feedback. Thanks!

    I used to have an old account that I signed up for a long time ago and like you, I hadn't used it and still don't. I simply created a new account with my real name and verified it.

    Just use your real name, don't worry!

    I would think if you are going to verify it with your checking acct...probably need to use your real name. Hope this helps.

    Just for further inquiries, if Paypal limited my account in the future or locked my account up/froze it then would it be possible for me to create another account w/my real name or not possible lol? I was wondering that!

    If I made a fake or similar name is it illegal?

    You can use real names . Paypal is not stick for multiple accounts when you don't have any negative balance in any of your account ! Also if you use fake details you will get caught when they will ask you to verify ssn or others ..

    It's best to use your real name and address. I've had issues with paypal in the past and it was much easier to settle things with them since I'm using my real identity. It would be such hassle because they will ask you a lot of questions if you were to have any problems with them in the future.

    You can use variations of your name as that works along with variations of your address or a different/fake one.
