I have a second (older) paypal account i'm trying to access, but when i choose the reset the password, when i enter email it only allows me to receive code via a old telephone number i no longer have access too, can't chose email/call or security questions. How would i go about this? Calling Paypal during work hours i suppose?

I have two paypal accounts. This one for commissions and another one for personal purchases. The other account is essentially locked out because I haven't been able to change the number on it. The number that it's linked to has been terminated so it can't receive texts anymore. I can't use my email to verify ownership over the account because there isn't an option to do so here. Any way to get around this?
plese help. I have changed phone number which is needed for Authentication so I cant log in into my account. What should I do to recover account and change phone number to new one?

Tried that. They have no idea how to help me. I gave them all of my personal information and they have no clue how to bypass 2FA.
