And my PayPal account is restored, again

My PayPal is restored. Again. It was rather quick too, just a few hours after the faxed documents were sent.

Dear Mohd Elfie Nieshaem Juferi,

We have completed our review and have restored your account.

Thank you for your patience during this process and for helping to make PayPal the safest and most trusted online payment solution.

Sincerely,
PayPal Account Review Department

Thank God.

I’ve learnt a long time ago to never argue with PayPal (since they literally hold you by the balls…depending on how much remain in your PayPal account) and comply with whatever they requested of you. So far my experience with them have been smooth, save for the faxing part which is a bit troublesome for me since I don’t have IDD. Fortunately I have millionaire-to-be to thank in helping me getting the documents sent.

Dude, I owe you one!

    1. I also got hit with the limited access thingy because they said there was suspicious activity.

      WTH?

      The only activity I had was a transfer for a small sum of money to buy clothes and stuff.

      And I had only accessed PayPal twice both from the same laptop.

      I tell you .. got so fed up because the fax number they gave me was wrong. I wrote them a rather firm email and they agreed to let me mail them the documents instead.

      Sheesh.

      So much trouble for dunno what!

    2. I’m afraid that I have landed myself into a bit of a bind.

      After trying to apply for a Paypal debit card, I received a notification from Paypal that my account was limited for security regulation purposes. Paypal asked me to confirm my bank account, which I did. My account was restored but was limited again the very next day. This time they are asking me to confirm my address and age by providing a bill (utility, cell phone, etc.) and government-issued ID (driver’s license, etc.) Unfortunately, since I’m underage (more precisely, I’m 15), I cannot provide either without Paypal finding out I’m underage. I also cannot transfer funds in my account or close my account.

      At this point, what would be the best way to resolve the problem? Should I tell Paypal that I’m underage at the risk of getting my account frozen? Would Paypal allow me to set up a teen account if my parents set up an account of their own? Can anyone actually tell me what happens to underage users?

      Anyways, I’d appreciate any prompt and legit responses to my dilemma. I really don’t want to get into any legal trouble. I own a Paypal account because I occasionally use eBay to buy/sell products, although I have not engaged in any scams of any sort. I also own a teen checking account with Wells Fargo, which is why I figured I wouldn’t get into any trouble with Paypal.

      Thanks in advance, and 10 points to the best answer.

    3. I need some orientation! I have an on-going issue with paypal. about 2 months ago they froze my account with a balance of $1000.00 dollars available for withdrawl until I verified for them my listed shipping street address and bank accounts. it has been 2 months since I have faxed them all the crap they want, and when I call them for an update as to when my account will be restored, they are extremely rude on the phone and all they say is “an account specialist is reviewing it and you will be notified by email” I get no info by any one at paypal either thru email, mail or phone. all buyers have received their items they bought on ebay and there is no open customer disputes. what can i do to make this company move forward and stop bullshiting me? do I have any leverage against them? I did not know they had so much authority to do this kind of abuse. if I recover my funds I will never use paypal again. some one that has info on what i can do please advise me.
      Alfred.

    4. Hi i just started paypal and i had sold something to someone and money was tranfered in my account. Now my account has limited access since it began. Is this normal for this to happen or do you have to wait a certain number of days before you can withdraw money? I have done everything it asked. but now every day i chage my password and security questions then i get an email that says account restored, so i log on to paypal then its still limited. So then a half hour later i get another email saying limited access so i have to change my password and security questions again. This has happened 5 times. I emailed paypal and got no response yet. Whats the Problem?

    5. I have adobe premiere pro cs3 and photoshop cs3 installed. I have the trial version and never used any kind of keygen,serial or crack. At first the the program is working very well until I have to run system restore because I deleted a text document which contains my schedule. System restore was successful but when I tried to start adobe premiere and photoshop its says: “AMT has failed catastrophically” I have tried all the troubleshooting at adboe’s knowledge base like changing account permissions, restarting Flexnet service, etc. I tried to uninstall it by going to control panel>program and features but nothing happened. No loading bars or whatsoever. I tried the adobe clean script and it works but it messed up my microsoft office. It says its not installed although it is. I tried to reinstall office but still I cant use it or open it. So I ended up running system restore again. I also tried to use uninstallers like revo-uninstaller and other registry cleaners. everytime I try something that doesn’t work I always run system restore to avoid complications. Please if anyone could please help me with this one that would be appreciated. I am willing to pay for the right answer through paypal. I am also going to reward the most point possible for the right answer. Please I really need help. I am running Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 4GB RAM, 2.50ghz core2 duo, Nvidia 8800GT 512MB dedicated.

      **as far as I’m concern there’s no problem with my hardware.
      Answer needed desperately before September 7.

      Thanks so much..=)

    6. Hello, my pc broke a while ago, and to get it fixed, I have had to completely restore the whole system, so I have lost all the game saves and the games themselves…. I could re-download all the games again, but it is like over 100GB of downloads, and my internet isn’t very good, so that would take AGES. So, since I can’t download them again, I have just given up with games…

      On the account, their are 38 games, here are some of the big ones:
      Saints Row: The Third
      The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
      Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
      Just Cause 2
      Left For Dead
      Left For Dead 2
      Portal
      Portal 2
      GTA: San Andreas
      Terraria
      Counter-Strike: Source
      Half-Life
      Half-Life 2

      PLUS: There is still £3 left in the Steam Wallet to add to your next game.

      I added it up, and in total, I have payed £223 for all of these games, but some where bought it one time offers, so really, there are worth over £260… Make offers, and if I am ok with them, and you are really interested, contact me at “chrisy98@hotmail.co.uk” and I will send you a full list of all the games. If you want to buy it, then we can use paypal, as it would be the safest option.

      Thanks, Chris.

      (And if you are just going to leave answers asking why I just don’t use eBay or something… I have already tried ebay and I nearly got scammed the first time, and the 2nd time I put it up, it just didn’t sell…)
      Made a typo.. it should be “On the account, their are 3[9] games, here are some of the big ones:”

    8. it says: PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening the accounts in our system. We recently reviewed your account, and we need more information to help us provide you with secure service. Until we can collect this information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
      i have confirmed my location and credit card. how long do i have to wait so i can use this account again? thanks

    9. Ive been playing SWTOR (Star wars the old republic) since release, and at face value the game is great. Ive played Vanguard, Rift, WoW (since vanilla), Warhammer, GW etc etc… A lot of other mmos to base my opinions and expectations off of. The graphics and gameplay are solid and fluid – the pvp is for the most part balanced and there is a sufficient amount of pve content for a games beginning stages. While most of these virtues are all we expect from a game im very disappointed to see, what I think are very small issues, dragging this game down and slowly destroying it. From the moment I tried to purchase SWTOR online I was unable to complete my purchase through origin as it read my credit card as a paypal account… I tried several credit cards including my gfs under a different name over a 2 week period – numerous friends had the same issue and had to buy a hard copy. This may be because origin (EA games version of steam) is about as old as SWTOR, in other words – star wars is its guinea pig and they are throwing away customers. This in and of itself didn’t stop me from buying the game. Shortly after I bought the game I noted how often maintenance was occurring and at extremely inconvenient times. The game seems to be down twice a week and while not all the shutdowns are for scheduled maintenance, the ones that are should be done at better times. Friday or Saturday night this week during peak hours they close the game for 8 hours… then 2 or 3 days later (tonight) they close the game again – if both of these instances truly were “scheduled maintenance”, why weren’t they done at the same time? No successful mmo that ive played has ever had scheduled maintenance on a weekend that I can recall. Aside from all the technical issues the game has (there aren’t many but the ones that are there are noticeable) it seems like the game lacks discipline. By that I mean a standard to which bioware holds its players and their actions accountable to. I played WoW since release and I was banned 5 times, each and everyone of these bans were earned and I had no quarrel with Blizzard. General shit talking – account theft – exploits and “hacks” – scamming were just a few of the ways I found entertainment in the game. But regardless of what I found myself involved in, WoW seemed to always restore balance and correct my wrong doings. Although I never really “learned my lesson”, I was penalized and had to rebuy the game and start all over which was punishment in itself. As I got older I stopped my juvenile antics and began to just play the game for games sake, however my brother who shares my fucked up sense of humor does a lot of the same stunts I used to in SWTOR – not only are his actions unpunished – they aren’t even acknowledged. I mean at least WoW pretended to handle the situation and game players a warning from time to time. It to me meant that they were at least reading other players submissions. I don’t know, is SWTOR going to let trivial things bring it to its knees – or are these just the ragged beginnings of an MMO super power?

    10. Hi there, i hope someone can help. I got a weird email and funds sent to my account with the message attached don’t mention this, may need to do this again. and don’t contact me. I can hack your account. Ge sent £14 then £24. I was kind of pleased and worried at the same time, free money! but how did he get my paypal email

      Then paypal suspended my ebay account 780 %100 positive feedback and put a suspension on my paypal account and a hold on the money. I’m furious, i contacted ebay via live chat and said the message in the ebay homepage said i’ve breached a policy and to contact them to appeal and they have sent an email stating why, in the email it said they could not disclose the info, a lie.

      I contacted them via live chat, this happened at 11:30 at night, and asked what the heck was going on. I said ebay owns paypal right? so howcome they can suspend my ebay account? she dodged but assured me she could see the reason and if i contacted paypal my access would all be restored.

      When i phoned them today they asked for photo ID i don’t have any so he said a birth certificate would to. I also had to send proof of postage of an item i sent and a bank statement at my own expense. There is also a section where it requests the transaction detail of the unknown person which is of course impossible because he just sent me money. I’ve missed a ton of auctions, wasted a lot of time and have people on ebay waiting to hear from me. All this because some idiot dumped chump money on me!!??

      I Think i’ve done enough, What do you suggest i say when i call them today. How long will my account take to be restored? i;ve done nothing wrong and thing i deserve some compensation from either ebay or paypal for this mess that’s no fault of my own.

      If they give me lots of trouble who should i contact to resolve this quickly? the financial ombudsman? should i threaten to contact them anyway or carry on being polite even though they have treated a perfect customer for 5 years like dirt?

      Thanks for reading

Im going on a 10 day vacation and were driving to the place were going to and its a long long ride and some music would be nice to listen to. If you can help thanks if you cant, oh well
      Thanks again, Heather

    12. I just got an e-mail from service@paypal.com. It says that my account access has been limited because it is possible that a third party may have accessed my account. It tells me I need to visit their Resolution Center to resolve the problem and restore full access to my account again. I clicked on the link to the resolution center, logged in, and it told me that PayPal is performing regular routine security maintenance and that sometimes certain “random” accounts get selected for this process. It then asks me to enter in a bunch of personal information in order to gain full access to my account again. The e-mail went to my spam folder, which I thought was wierd. However, the bottom of the e-mail stated that with certain ISP’s, it is a safety feature.
      So, has anyone else with PayPal ever gotten this? Is this a routine procedure for them? I just want to know if it’s legit before I start entering personal information.
      Any help is appreciated! 🙂
      Thanks, guys! It did turn out to be a phishing scam, and I have taken all neccessary precautions! Problem is, I’ve gotten 2 more of these since then…however, I’ve just been forwarding them to PayPal and deleting them from my Inbox. But everything is straightened out….thanks!!! 🙂

    13. Paypal limited my account. They want me to confirm my Bank Account, social security number and location. What are the chases of having this account opened again. It says:

      Why is my account access limited?

      Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):
      # PP

      Jan 31, 2011: We need a little more information about you to help confirm your identity.

      (Your case ID for this reason is PP-001-204-260-406.)
      How can I get my account access restored?

      It’s usually pretty easy to take care of things like this. Most of the time, we just need a little more information about your account or latest transactions.

      To help us with this and to find out what you can and can’t do with your account until the issue is resolved, go to the Resolution Center.

      We’ll review the information you provide and email you if we need more details or when your account is back to normal.

      Completing all of the checklist items will automatically restore your account access.

    14. why was Jesus called ISA in the Quran? is that true Jesus was born close a palm tree? because the Quran says Mary was alone in the desert.. he wasn’t born in bethlehem? is there something about Jesus in heaven? according to islam what’s happened after Jesus ascension with mary and his apostles? what’s the concept of Messiah in Islam? was jesus that messiah? what is a messiah? according to jews.. he is anointed.. also a king.. then was jesus a king without crown?

    15. Anyone have any experience regarding it?
      As PP acc review dept. via customer care contact links wrote to me to appeal to restore pp acc access after 180days if i don want to resolve steps imposed by them thru pp resolution centre.
      So i’m curious and asking here..
      thanks.

    16. Is it possible to unlock a locked account by sending money to it from another account?

      My account was locked for not restoring a negative balance.

      I rang Customer Service and it sucked. The Asian woman didn’t answer my question…
