    I set up a stealth PP account for myself late last year, and it went well for several months...eventually though, they figured out that I was a previously-limited member, and limited me again (well, it was really only a matter of time). They recently just sent me the email saying that the account has passed its time limit and I may now withdraw my funds. Yay. But the thing is, I set up the account under a fake name, and funded it only with a VCC and no bank accounts.

    So my question now is, how can I go about withdrawing the money from this dead PP account as it's under a fake name? Can I just link up a bank account under my real name and withdraw the cash? I don't think I can.

    The amount in question is £125, and I'm in the UK, so requesting a cheque payment from Paypal is out of the question (nevermind the fact that the name on the cheque would be wrong anyway...)

    Hello!
    I would send it to an alternate account through friends/family, make sure the account you send it to is your OWN, REAL account (or one with a bank account setup that you have access to) and withdraw it that way.
    Let me know if that helps! Any questions ask :)

    Buy a giftcard and then sell it at one of the websites where you can buy and sell giftcards.

    Thank you for your suggestions, but my account is permanently limited. That means that I can't spend money from it online, nor can I send money to other Paypal accounts.

    All I can do is update my account information, add a card (which are both useless), or add a bank account (which probably won't help because it will be under the wrong name).

    Can I add a bank account that has an unmatched name, and make the withdrawal? Or would that fail?

    Is your stealth account set up to be in UK as well (the country where the real u lives in matches the stealth?)

    In the US you can, because under law Paypal can't demand the name on the bank account, just the account number info. To compensate, PP sometimes asks for a mobile phone verification as well. Some bank accounts like BoA can be instantly attached to the Paypal account without a phone check, so starting a BoA or similar account (yours or someone else's) would be the simplest way to get to the PP money.

    Back in the days I had £200 which i got through a blackhat method and it locked my account , i got in contact with them they said they cant unlock my account but they transfered the money to my bank account...

    In a way i was kind of suprised because it was all fake details on PP and still transfered to my real bank

    Thank you for that helpful information. But I did state in my original post, I'm British and live in the UK. xD

    I might try messaging Paypal then and ask if they can just transfer the cash to my real bank account, the worst they can do is say "no" I suppose... :)

    The OP from the UK might simply try to open an easy-to-get-approved for online UK account, such as Barclay's, and withdraw his PP funds to that if he can't do so through his current bank:
