Cannot deactivate account

Hi everyone, I opened this account as a minor, knowing it was against the policy, and now i cannot deactivate the account without verifying my identity and address which i can’t do. Help is much appreciated .

Re: Cannot deactivate account



As you can't verify your account would be permanently limited as an illegally opened underage account.

You would not be able to close it, paypal limits it to stop you using any information on it to try and open another paypal account.

You would have to ask them when you are 18 if you can open another one BUT as you have already broken their rules once they don't always allow it.

Kudos / Solution appreciated.
