Changing Name on Account


Changing Name on Account

When I opened my Paypal account back in 2005, I had to use my Mom's name as I did not have a bank account/Credit Card yet.   Now, 15 years later, I have never had any problem with PayPal, but now one of the sites that I do Sports Betting on has said that the accounts don't match.   Basically, I want to get my name on my account (everything else on there now is linked to me, except the name).   What should I do?    If this doesn't make sense, please let me know and I can further explain.

Re: Changing Name on Account



You can't change a name on a paypal account to another person.

You should not be using a paypal account that is not in your name really.

You would need to close this account and open one in your own name.
