    First off..

    How did you even get a BOA account? Are you from the US? Did you live in the US in the past?

    Now to answer your question..

    If you have a valid SSN, never used your SSN on a limited PayPal account and if the name on your SSN matches the name on your PayPal account then I would go ahead with sending your SSN to PayPal to get that account lifted. Now if you don't have a SSN then there is really no way to bypass this other then persuading PayPal to ask for another document like EIN number.

    Paypal does not need a SSN, but they like to ask for it. Offer them alternatives like proof of your US based billing address, i.e. some bill of merchandise, bank statements, credit card bills, etc.

    To Deryll: Yes, non resident aliens are able to open bank accounts in the US. Why not? A lot of foreigners invest in the USA. That's why there is so much money in your country because it's a free country (more or less).

    I swear paypal has an option to send different information related to tax information that is different from the SS# but kind of the same for foreign countries. Not sure though, but I see this kind of information available for different sites.

    I tried putting a fake one in and I got limited immediately. Use with caution!

    I believe your account will get limited eventually. Don't keep to much money on it.
