PayPal not offering their services

In 2018, my friend signed me up for a PayPal account. We were 16. When I saw that you had to be 18, I decided to just finish setting up my account when I turned 18. I am now 18 and when I tried to set up my account, I was given the message that I am not allowed to have a PayPal and that you are not offering the services to me anymore. I want to know if this can be overturned at all because I did not know how PayPal worked and  didn't even set up my own account, my friend said she would do it for me and I assumed it was something like Venmo so I let her do it. We were 16 and stupid. Somebody please help.

You would never be able to use an illegally made underage account once paypal have limited it.

However sometimes paypal allow you to open a new account once you are 18 but that is not guaranteed, you would need to contact them and ask.
