Hello @Eddieboy82 @Temp20230922a and @simon262
Welcome to the PayPal Help Community and thanks for your post!
I do understand your concern regarding your account being limited permanently. For the safety and security of the network, PayPal system often reviews the accounts for possible risks which may lead to a limitation placed in your account. You will be notified the reason of the limitation via email. When an account is limited permanently, any funds in your balance will be help up to 180 days and you will be updated via email about the eligibility of the withdrawal. I recommend you to reach out to PayPal Support team to get a second look on your account.
@simon262 If you have already received the eligibility email for the withdrawal, you can contact the PayPal team to get your funds.
Here's the help center article with the contact options to reach the PayPal team : How do I contact PayPal customer service?
Have a great day!
