    My PayPal account was limited with around $1200 in it. I got my documents from @secondeye and paypal did confirmed my ID (which was fake but, also great so thank you secondeye) but they seem to have been reviewing my proof of adress which was also fake and from secondeye for almost 5 days or 3 business days. It says on there website it should take no more then 2 business days. Im wondering if I should call or email them to say something.

    Just to clarify the account is not permantly suspended or anything. Still in the proccesing stage of limitation. What should I do??

    I'm not saying it's not an issue, but it took me 2 weeks (at which point I sent an email) to get mine looked at. Real address, real name, real everything. It also said around 2 business days.

    I sent an email to support after two weeks and they got it fixed up the next day.

    In your case, maybe you don't want to draw more attention to it and leave it longer - but it felt like mine was lost in the system until I sent an email, so your choice.

    Call them.
    I've myself experienced multiple times where they for some reason accidentally skip the verification process and thus nothing happens. However after calling them they'll ping the relevant department and it'll happen within a day.
