Fake name

Hi, so I made a PayPal account nearly a year ago and have not used it, in June I added my bank account to it, however on this account I used a fake name, and now my account is limited and I cannot remove my bank account from my PayPal, is there a way to change the name I used to my real name so my account is not limited anymore? Thank you

Re: Fake name

you can call Paypal and see if they will change it for you,I doubt it though.

you should try opening a new paypal account in your real name and link a different bank account

If you used a fake name on a paypal legal financial account then it would be permanently limited as you broke paypal rules and the account does not belong to you but to the person named on the account who has documents to prove its their legal name.
