After years of being a good PayPal user I suddenly could not sign in. I tried changing the password several times but that did not work. I was asked some security questions (my favorite teacher, etc) that I answered correctly. I was presented with a captcha and I passed that test OK. I attempted to contact PayPal support but to do that I would need to be signed in. PayPal finally sent me an access code to an obsolete phone number that I used to register with. That was that, no other options for validating my account.
A catch 22. Extremely frustrating! My money has been locked up in PayPal for weeks and I cannot get it out! Finally, after many hours of struggle I found on the internet a round-about way to contact customer support. I hope that PayPal will allow me to give you this phone number whereby you can get a code sent to your, Facebook, email address, whatever, which will unblock the access to your account:

Paypal, if you are paying attention, please fix this problem. It has been going on for several years. Gillions of people are pulling their hair out and probably looking for an alternative to PayPal (like me).
