Just opened up a paypal account. Trying to transfer money from bank into paypal account and getting nothing but errors. Telling me to contact them but they keep saying everything is fine but my account has actions that are "fishy" and it may take awhile to get it cleared. Why? It's a new account. What can be "fishy". I googled it and it seems so many have this problem. Anything I can do except sit here and be frustrated?
Everything has been confirmed. Bank account and a credit card. I can receive money from people, just cant add money from bank to PayPal account. Rep informed me that my account was limited because of suspicious activity. I HAD NOT done anything yet when he told me this. I had just opened it and it was three days old when he informed me. He told me limitations were lifted and I'd be able to transfer from bank to PayPal but I still can't transfer!!
