    You logged from a proxy... and who usually logs on proxy servers ? People trying to do credit card fraud. So they are just suspecting that you're one of them because you have the same behaviour. That's not idiot from them.

    As for the upload or fax thing I can't help you, but I hope it won't be too long... They just want to be sure you're the person your're pretending to be.

    No they are idiots, they limited my account also. I am not using proxies. Buyer who purchased product from me raised the dispute unauthorised transaction for that purpose they have limited my account. But hackersmeker you can find the upload button in your account as resolve.

    They look like idiots and they act like ones so they must be idiots :D Anyway a few precautions in the future:
    1.if you use a proxy or a vpn check it here to see if your ip looks like a proxy.If that page tells you that your ip looks like a proxy then stop using that proxy/ip.I had a vpn that looked like proxy and they limit my us paypal because of it.
    2.for utility bills /invoices you can always use this template site from microsoft.Choose what you need and you'll be ok:
    3.after you modify the utility bill/invoices you can upload them to their site or send them by fax.If you must send faxes you can use this page:
    hope that helps

    PayPal are truly idiots! My REAL account is limited due to suspicious activity! I was accepting payments for electronic items and the rep told me they mostly deal with accounts utilizing tangible goods with shipping tracking numbers. I told him I don't have a tracking number for these payments as they come from my websites. Anyway, the PayPal rep was totally confused and my account remains limited! Also, my main eBay account is also limited! What a bunch of assholes!

    I need an alternative solution.

    Any ideas?
