Welcome to the PayPal Community Forum! I'm sorry to you've run into some issues transferring funds to a friend in the US. Thanks for letting us know what you've tried already. Has your friend completed setting up their account yet? As long as their email is spelled correctly and confirmed on PayPal, you should not have any issue finding it to send money to. You may also want to ask them to send you a money request or invoice. However, please make sure your friend reviews our fees and when they apply.
Good luck with this and future transactions,
- Jon K
