I'm prompted with this message even though I confirmed my card from my account and YES it isn't registered with any other account

Hey there @Rajeshkumardey & @Dakota159!

 

I apologize to hear you're unable to add your card! I understand how aggravating that can be. This message can appear if our security system is not comfortable with processing your request at that time or if your financial was added and removed too many times where it's not eligible for further action. If you added and removed the card multiple times, you may have to add a different one. If not, I recommend trying again in a few days with a cleared browser and familiar device. Hope this helps!

This is a weak answer.  I've had a PayPal account for many years, more than 10 for sure.  None of my cards are new or being "added," I've used them hundreds of times.  Nothing on my account has changed.  I'm on my own, personal, completely recognized device.  This is a real issue!  A real answer would be awesome.

I have started getting this message as well. Been using PayPal for probably more than 10 years, current card is valid and has funds and have been used in probably more than 100 transactions without issues. Anyone found a solution?
