Paypal is holding my account hostage

Paypal is holding my account hostage

Hello everyone,

 

I am so frustrated I don't know what to do. For two weeks, I have been trying to change the name on my Paypal account so that it would match the name on my bank account, and therefore I could withdraw funds. 

This should only be a technicality; I want to use my full name instead of just my first and surname.

I have done done as instructed; I have uploaded a photo of my passport and a bank document showing my name as it stands on my bank account.

TO NOW, MY NAME HAS STILL NOT BEEN CHANGED ON MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT.

 

i HAVE SENT FIVE EMAILS. AND PAYPAL HAS DONE NOTHING.

 

I am so sick of this, I feel like this company is holding my money and my account, and therefore my life hostage. 

There is nothing I can do? I should just be ignored by this company and be helpless to collect the money that belongs to me?

 

Don't tell me to send another email. And don't say i should phone the call center and pay a dollar a minute. THIS IS NOT AIR

Re: Paypal is holding my account hostage

I just tried Facebook. It took me on an automated journey back to the message center. Chat is unavailable at this time. Every time I send a message and am ignored, it makes me more and more sick. At this point, I just want my money and to close my account. But I don't get an answer, I don't get résolution, I just get more and more sickened.

Re: Paypal is holding my account hostage

All i get is automated responses sending me straight back to the message pages where i only get more automated responses. I have been going around in circles and I cannot get online with a human!!

How can a company of this size not have agents prepared to resolve issues in real time??

I don't know how to get any satisfaction! 

I just want my name change to go through like they said it did (but it did not) and I want my money.
