I created a Paypal account about two weeks ago, and have now decided that I want to close my account. According to Paypal, I need to give up my ID in order to close my account. Is there a way that I can close my account without sending this information?
Thanks in advance
PayPal likely wants to know you are indeed the owner of the account. Security check. Some behaviors that may have fit their security algorithm parameters may have trigger it. Provide the info, its just a formality. They got to check ID sometimes for anti-money laundering, anti-terror funding, Know Your Customer (KYC), etc regulations.
