    I am freaking out, they limited my account for sending my friend money. I am so afraid I will loose it, I use paypal only to receive payment from people, I just send a friend some money because he fixed some images with photoshop. I send him 150 usd.

    Will they terminate my account? I have used paypal for like 8 years now.....

    Chill down man! It happens when you send unusual amount of money out of your Paypal. As you said, you have not used it to send money before so, it triggers security alarms. They ain't going to close your account. Just provide them what docs they're asking and you're good to go.

    Yeah, PayPal is a dick in general. Hell, I requested a refund from one seller here, within 10 minutes because I wanted to use my CC instead of Bank. They refunded.

    7 days later I am still waiting for a refund from PayPal for a transaction that was void within 15 minutes literally...

    I assume you sent multiple payments to "your friend" for them to limit you for just one transaction ;)

    It is not a fake account, it is my friend in another country

    hell I am scared as hell. I have to proveice his birth date.... I chose send money to friend, should I select other option?
    He did some photoshop for me, can I explain that to paypal??? Or is here the problem that i paid him for photoshop?

    I do not get it why they limited my account and not his????
    It is so strange. If he has strange account why they limit me?

    Is it about the taxes, ebcause I send him payment as a friend?
    What should I explain them when I call them?

    I am afraid to send any more money to friends for god sake

    Hey, try to be calm and not worry too much.

    As long as your account is 100% legit and all you're information then it's all fine. If not, then you need to be more alert.

    When you speak to a rep try to make it sound like you actually helping a friend. Don't tell them you are paying for goods or services because then you "lied" by sending the wrong kind of transaction. Maybe say that its money to help him purchase photoshop or something.

    Many people that I'm paying for a job like to ask for personal payments and I always say no. Just take the fees, it's a part of life.

    you're a dick for doing that. Sellers hate when buyers do stupid sh.it like that. Why don't you make your mind up before you buy?

    Contact them by phone, they would ask a few security questions to confirm it is your account, the issue would be resolved quickly.
