    ok i made another paypal account thinking they probably wont F me over again. but guess what..


    i do a youtube service, and so people send me the money. now all of a sudden they close my account with my money saying its suspicious and everything.

    last time they closed it and stole 1200+ dollars from me.

    this time is was 187 dollars but they "limited" the account. they want a bank/creditcard/address verified/explanation of my service, and a few other
    things..


    is there anything i can do? i cant hook a bank/credit because i dont have a credit and i dont trust adding my bank...

    Get paid through 2CheckOut, Plimus or FastSpring. They will get a cut but you won't have Paypal problems.

    Note: your clients can pay you with Paypal with this services and you an get the money in your bank account or through a prepaid card

    When you drive by a dark alley and there is a group of teen age boys at the end all wearing the same colors just kind of hanging around, do you wonder if they're up to no good?

    What you've described sets off at least a dozen red flags for fraud, and you're probably doing at least one thing illegal. (taking payment without providing your identity is practically proof that you don't intend to pay taxes on the income) Paypal doesn't suck they're just smarter than you. They've done a good job of detecting your illegal activity. If you want to stay under the radar you have to get smarter.

    Once you start getting several payments through paypal, then they ask you to be verified.

    If you are going to have your business require paypal, then you might as well try and verify your account, so you don't lose your money.

    Unfortunately, the only thing that bothers me is the paypal percentage fee that they take for themselves, however, at the moment paypal is one of the biggest payment processors and payment acceptors.

    uhh he's not being a dousche just some useful information. Nowadays to be honest, if you've had 1 paypal account suspended, your pretty much screwed. they will almost always link the 2, and they always ask for verification, which you can't give because of the other account. You should really consider plimus, ect...as suggested.

    There is nothing you can do. They have crushed me 7 times in 2 years.....Closed one account after it was limited and i spent a lot of time providing documents. Once for a $40 balance from an account from 3 years ago (it's always right when you start using your account again and try to withdraw) they've removed my bank account saying it was no longer valid for paypal..sent the police to my house for saying i would jump off the bridge i was living under if the matter wasn't resolved....It doesn't matter what you say to them they will ruin you

    Where you verified with them?

    In other words, why was the first account closed?

    lol ur the dumbass that didnt really get his message.

    You cannot have big amounts of money going through paypal without them having your social security, bank account, or credit card.

    They have to do it by law , if they allow you to go without any of these 3 things then they are basically contributing to money laundry. Go read patriot act of 2001 , you should get an idea of what paypal is required to do . Verified your account with a bank account and a credit card then if they still limit your account then you can come back here and complain.

    Welcome to PP sucks club! I am having very different problem. My account was not limited, but restricted from withdrawal of amount. Still fighting with them, after submitting all the documents.

    But, we should accept, without them we can't do IM Business.

    sorry OP because it's not really helping you, but as it has been said already: you're the dumbass, not because you got limited, but you commited the exact same mistake again and you say paypal sucks balls?!

    on the other hand, you were right: they suck balls of course :)

    p.s. wtf is this doin in the yt section?

    have to admit it that till now with PP, things were smooth for me, over 4 years now, had only two issues and got them resolved in two weeks, maybe I am just lucky, but BigBuddy is right, "without PP we can't do IM business"

    If you're not doing anything wrong, call them and explain.

    I've used them for about 6 years, and never had a major problem.

    OH i am having a different problem with paypal, those ********ers changed my last name on my paypal.

    since my last name is xxx-yyy

    they changed to yyy instead of leaving it as xxx

    They must be pretty retarded if they can't tell in my ID the ********ing difference and this happened after i submitted my documents to verify my paypal. Now after they verified it i complained about my last name being changed and they tell me to submit the documents to change my last name, am like wtf i just did that shit yesterday dont you ********ers keep copies of the documents.

    One or two chargebacks even if bogus, will fu%k ur paypal. I've mentioned it a couple other places but it's cheap and easy to set up LLC in U.S.. Then u can have accounts for each LLC and keep things a bit separate Might want to use proxies, so paypal doesn't see same IP. Also whenever I end up in dispute with them I seem more legit, I've got paperwork, and if your smart or know a good accountant there's some great tax breaks to keep tax bill nominal anyway.

    The cops were really cool they basically just told me to "stay indoors and keep my feet on the ground" which was actually really funny. Of course my account was verified, both of them.....Had a business and personal account.....It just doesn't matter apparently if you are a shady account seller or botmaker you can just run tens of thousands of dollars through paypal no problem. I need to figure out how these people are able to get away with all this when I can't seem to do anything without being "suspicious"
