    About 6 years ago or so I had a paypal account for a long time, but i had some big issues basically someone got my login and sold stuff got money and somehow laundered it out... Anyway that account was cancelled and had all chargebacks. Question is if i reopened a new paypal account with the same name would there be any problems?

    Another question is related to taxes if we live abroad (from usa) but paypal account is in US would we still have to pay taxes even if im not in the us? I plan to study abroad about two years.

    Once you have been banned from PayPal. You have been banned. I have an account, and my brother had an account which was abused. He was told that they don't care. Just like a system like CHEX and EWS. Once your name has been flagged. You have a VERY hard time reinstating that trust in getting another account.

    Don't overthink it. Just keep everything 100% separate from your old account. I'd suggest getting a VPS and creating a new one from scratch. I have multiple paypals for my multiple businesses. As long as you can provide an EIN and confirm it you should be good to go! If you can't get an EIN, I'd suggest using someone you know IRL's info. As long as you keep it seperate / untied to any of your dirty laundry, you should be good to go.

    As long as all your banking and address info is different you are probably OK, lots of people have the same name so there is really no way they can go by the name only.

    If you are a US citizen you are required to pay taxes no matter where you live. Failure to file is tax evasion. Can you get away with it if the amounts are low? Probably so but if the amounts are low why screw around with taking a chance since you will not owe much anyway.

    I would think there is a way to prove that you were not the abuser of the account. If that could be proved, you should not have a problem. Otherwise, get someone else to open one for you in their name.

    You need to make sure that they cannot connect your old info to your new account.
