    If you're in the EU, it's when you receive £2000 but I'm not sure about the rest of the world. The moral of the story is to get any money out of your paypal account into your bank account ASAP.

    When they limited my account, I just sent them my ID hoping they wouldn't read it properly and they did but they let me withdraw my money before limiting my account again.

    Don't tell them and send your Paypal money as soon as is it in your account. Never keep money in Paypal to limit the risks, they have a reputation...

    Has anyone here who's under 18 done this though and how much were you making? definitely going to bank transfer it the second it arrives in my paypal but it would suck if I got banned and didn't get to keep my hard earned dosh

    I got mine frozen. I was $400 in debt to them and they called my house. My mom answered and told them I was 13, and they told me they're locking it until I'm 18....That was 4.5 years ago, only 4 more months until it gets unlocked!! :D In the mean time I've been using one under my moms name lol

    interesting so you never had problems before getting in debt? I just want people's experience of getting money sent to their paypal at under 18, how much it was and what happened.
