    So I have been recently selling amazon US gift cards for some guy I found on this forum. His costumers would send me paypal funds in different transaction, so I 50$ us gift card, they would send 3x20$us payments. However, after about 100 transactions, the payments are all being looked into be paypal. The guy I was working with told me that paypal doesn't like me selling gift cards, and I should invent a story, so I told them I was selling web services such as web designs for logos. My story was somewhat sketchy and they had to permenantly limit my access, and the fund are still being looked into. The costumers who sent me payments should be responding to the emails to try to back me up but I'm sceptical and I feel only a few will. This is my personal paypal and would really like it to be restored, would the best method be to come clean? The cases are g oing to be closed in 2 days.

    Not gonna happen bro.

    I just tried to get my PP recovered from this exact same situation. For the same guy. PP permanently limited my account too, then told me I can no longer use their services.

    Some people got their accounts restored by telling the truth. But you're not gonna be so lucky.

    My suggestion is you close the bank account attached to it and get a new one. They're gonna try to take whatever you owe out of there even though you can't use them anymore.

    I owe them $75 so far. I've got no doubt they'll be contacting me soon. And I do plan to pay the money I owe. But I will pay it at my convenience.

    Is this wrong? Maybe, but idgaf.

    If you still need PP, set up a stealth account. I have like five. They all work flawlessly.

    Nope. You lied for him. If you'd have told the truth they might restore your account.

    Don't worry though. Just get a stealth account and go about your business.

    Alarm bells should clang in your skull and red flags should be slapping your face when you see schemes like this where someone gets you to do financial transactions for you!

    Come on guys! How naive can you be?

    Just a heads up for you: when a guy offers you a free plane ticket to Mexico and in return just wants you to bring back a suitcase of his grandmothers underpants to him it's probably a bad idea.

    Fair enough, this was totally my fault and I take the blame for it. I hope others won't fall into the trap I did..

    It's a PP account using a proxy/VPN, fake name and fake details.

    I use 24vc. They specialize in fresh VPNs specifically for stealth accounts.
