    Due to EU m0ney laundering laws my Paypal has been "limited" Being that I am not 18 years of age I cannot supply them with anything like a drivers license or bill. But my question is this: Would it be safe to send the m0ney out of my account? Paypal won't suddenly screw me over by reporting me to the police or something? I hit 1800 euros recieved which is the limit in the EU without ID so I am pretty scared of what to do. Hope you can give me advice.

    Your best bet is to wait until you are 18 and then show them the drivers liscense

    Nonono. Thats a bad idea. A really bad idea.

    2 reasons:

    1. I have 134 days to do this. It would take 2-3 years for me to get my drivers license.
    2. My driver license birth date would not match with my birthdate on Paypal so they would instantly restrict me.

    a limited account can receive money but unfortunately you can't withdraw it.

    there means to lift the limitation stuff and you will be hiring someone in the hire a freelancer page in here

    Doesn't seem like something you can handle on your own, do you have a friends or family member that understand's Paypal, they might be able to help you lift the limitation with their own info

    It clearly states that the only thing I cannot do is close my account. All I have informed you of is true. I've b0ught plenty of stuf since yesterday with it. I jsut want to know if ill get legal problems or something if I spend all the m0ney and ignore their request. I was thinking of spending the m0ney and then pulling the "I am under 18" card so they are forced to close my account.

    My paypal is already verified. But now because of the EU money laundering laws I need to provide Proof of residence (a bill, bank statement, etc.) and ID proof (Drivers license, passport, etc.) Since I am under 18 I cannot get the first one and the 2nd one would prove that I am under the age of 18 and therefore not old enough to own a paypal account. Now what I am asking on here is if I could safely spend the money and then tell paypal I am under 18 so they are forced by law to close my account or if that would create bigger problems.

    from the looks of it, i'd say, you'll be just fine, it's not really a classical limitation where you can't use the acc anymore, only the receiving is limited because of reaching the 1.8k EUR limit, sending/withdrawing or spending the balance is not
    i assume that 134 days are left from the grace period until you need to provide them with the required documents, you won't get into any trouble because of this, they don't know that you're underage, in the mean time you can spend the balance, you still have plenty of time left to figure out what to do, abandon the acc after the balance reaches zero or you can also buy fake documents to verify the acc, but maybe you won't do that anyway, because you're already afraid of getting into trouble :)

    Ok thanks man! When I first wrote this I was kindof freaking out. After some thinking I can look at it in a bit more rational way.

    Why not just find someone who is of age, get his driver's license, and use photoshop to change the info to match?
    Anyone with a few months of experience with photoshop would be able to do it.

    I am not going to get on the really bad side of the law, sadly.

    Once your Paypal account is limited I dont think you can withdraw any money untill the limitation has been lifted and is no more.

    You cant send funds to anyone else either while its limited I dont think.
