Can't accept received money

I sent myself money through Patreon(11.04.2021) but it seems that there's no way for me to accept it since I don't have a SSN and US debit/credit card, I'm not a US citizen and I don't live there anymore. I've been using this account to make payments for years but never tried to receive payment before. I contacted Patreon, they told me(also somewhere on these forums I found the same info) probably money will return to them after 30 days, then they will charge it back to my account. But it's been more than 30 days and money is not sent back. How can this money be transferred back to the sender?

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.

Re: Can't accept received money

Thanks for your reply.

I couldn't close my US account because paypal is not working in my country(Turkey) and I use paypal to make online payments a lot, closing this account would hurt my online payment capability badly. I wish non-accepted funds would be sent back automatically after a certain time. This situation creates a deadlock.
