    Hi there
    I'm attempting to make a stealth PayPal account. After reading through the bibles and forums I'm confused as loads of you guys say you just reported your card as lost and used your new one that came through or you opened a savings account on the side of your bank account. I have just ordered a savings account however it has the SAME sort code as my other card linked to my banned PayPal but a different account number. Will I get limited and caught if I use this new savings account with a new account number and same sort code??
    Thanks guys!
    Sorry if this was posted in the wrong forum, I am new

    What do you mean by "sort code"? Did you mean SWIFT code?

    In the UK, the sort code is unique to the bank/branch so it will remain the same for any bank accounts created by you through the same bank but this is not a unique identifier to PayPal. As long as you have a new account number it'll be fine.

    thanks for the clarification. In US, banks tell paypal only two things. 1. Is this bank account active? and 2. Can this account receive funds? Banks will not give paypal any more info just based on your name and account number.
