What one needs to know is that PayPal is the business partner from hell. They will lie cheat and steal your money.
Constant run around. if you get a " your funds are ready for withdrawal " after the redicuously long 180 days they hold funds, don't count on it!
All the withdrAwal and edit account info remains locked. This is just another attempt to probe your info. Paypal is the most notorious banking crook in the business
Got my account limited today. I occasionally buy stuff from eBay with my PayPal account. Now they ask me for my passport scan and etc. I'll just start buying from AliExpress and alike. I did not have any funds on my PayPal account. Sucks, because it's very untimely, I plan my wedding, and wanted to buy some minor stuff, which is not available locally.
I'm not even sure if it's legally sound, because I'm not a US citizen. And what's the point of this step, while they have my banking info already. I've only encountered this kind of "treatment" on shady betting/poker/bitcoin websites, which I stay away from.
Anyway, will not use paypal anymore, unless there's some holy grail selling on eBay which I will absolutely need.
I advise for everyone to do the same I guess.
My personal account has been limited. I had recently moved so uploaded a scan of the letter provided by the transport authority as I didn't have the sticker to update my licence at the time. Paypal emailed to tell me that I needed to upload the back of my licence. I can now do that however in my resolution centre the section where I need to re-sumbit proof of my address is still greyed out and it says "submitted for review". i need Paypal to reset this so that I can do it again.
Is there another section where i can upload new information? Or do i have to wait for Paypal to update my account so that I can fix it?
I have messaged Paypal and they have been unhelpful and told me to go through the process again, which is impossible as outlined above.
How do i get around this and supply the back of my licence?
try their Facebook page and message them on there
they are quicker than going through e mail to Patpal
i found them helpful so give them a try
We should probably look into some sort of class action as I am in the same boat with a lot of money sitting without resolution on which Im paying interest. Very frustrating indeed
