Account access permanently limited

Posted on

My account access is permanently limited because I have sent money from my PayPal account in the Netherlands to my PayPal account in Qatar, but by mistake I've sent money using seller to buyer option instead of friend to a friend transaction option. After that; I tried to refund back the money but they treated it as a suspicious transaction which ended up by closing my account and giving me a limited access to my account. They said the only thing I can do after closing my account is just withdraw my funds to a bank account, but I tried to withdraw my money with no success. They just keep denying my visa or my bank withdraw process. I am trying to email or message PayPal organization but I am not getting back any useful information that could help me.

Please advice.
