    Hi,

    My old Paypal has been limited for a few months now because I am not 18. I am currently 17.

    On that account I have my current address, my current bank account/credit card info, and my cell phone number.

    Is there any way I can call them up and reinstate? Maybe lie about my age?

    Also....is it true if I open up a new account it'll get limited as well if I use the same bank account information?

    I really need my Paypal account back up and running as a lot of the biz I do online goes through that.

    Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! :)

    Nope. And I don't recommend involving yourself in fraud. The IRS will find out and PayPal. Anyone on here saying they can provide a service is full of shit.

    You need to be 18+ to have the account. So they will just freeze the account if you aren't old enough.

    If you are just using paypal account for purchases/ any legal thing, just you can get a stealth account to send payments(Not recommended though). But if you want to use a own account, it is best.

    Do you guys think if when I turn 18 and call them up they will reinstate my account no problem? I heard theyre strict about that.

    might help.

    With a PayPal Student Account, parents can give teens their own spending power in a safe and secure way. Sign up is fast, free and easy.


    give them a call tell them your a student and the account info i am sure they can help you.

    i dont see any problem even admitting your into internet marketing and need your account
    to receive your earnings.

    what age can a person work where you are? i am sure it younger then 17 or 17 at least.

    Would recommend using a different service than Paypal. Everything (at least Stateside), is all linked to your SSN now. They can be pretty retarded about freezing funds too. Stripe is a decent alternative depending on your requirements for banking.
