Paypal Account Limited

Discussion in 'PayPal' started by 123mim, Sep 5, 2011.

    hi!
    Okay, i haven't used my Paypal for like 3months and then i get an email from them (about 5days ago) saying that my account has gotten limited.
    apparently my account has got hacked and ''I'' have sent money to someone and now the account is -1500$.
    so i conntacted them because i freaked out.
    i'm only 17 and i told them that (smart i know :()
    but ''nicely'' or something all my details like where i lived was changed... (think the hacker did that :eek: He/she change the adress to some steal company in Sweden)
    and all they really got is my real name :s
    I live in Sweden

    so my question is: if I don't answer them anymore will they stop contacting me? will the delete my account? will i get sued? :s

    thank you!!

    For that amount of money you would probably be persued by them alot and it will be very hard to ignore them.

    Hard luck. Let's know what happened. I don't know much about paypal. Still learning about paypal. Hope you recover your hacked account back.

    Hey, call PayPal and tell them what happened, they should help you in this matter even though you are underage, and when this has been solved, they will limit your access until you have reached the legal age.

    Do you mean negative $1500 or positive $1500? Anyways, I am not familiar that hacking is now possible in paypal. I guess someone that have known you took that account from you. He/she has an idea about your earnings. Calling or contacting Paypal or any parties affected by any means is the best thing to do. Do not wait for bigger negative consequences to come before you make any action. Have it as soon as possible.

    Your Paypal account have gotten limited because anyone have opened it from different IP making the Paypal to think that someone hacked Paypal account and seeing this they limited it or sicne you are at age of 17th and as per Paypal ploicy,you can have account only if you are 18 or above 18 :)

    Paypal will do something if your account is hacked. It happened to me many times. I think you have done something wrong to get negative balance but you don't want to tell people that, don't you :)

    no seriously i got hacked or something.....
    i wanted to earn some money from PTC sites because i don't get any allowance so i started earning lite money from PTC-sited but then i got tired. i think someone (the hacker) got my paypal from one of those PTC-sites.....
    But to get the negative balance off i have to send a copy of my id and stuff like that... no i haven't verified my account.
    and i'm actually not even interested in keeping my paypal account so i'm hoping they will just delete my account.

    You have to fix that issue first, PayPal will not close the account until you have cleared your debt which you owe them, so if you don't work out this issue and abandon the account, in the future you won't be able to create a new or use this account because of the debt.

    If they have previous records of ur address like u changed ur address
    not now but after 180 days they will send the account to collecting agency
    and this agency has the right to contact u by any means and enforce legal action against u

    You can abandon the account, PayPal will not go after you, $1500 is a bit low and it will cost them way more than that, if it was something like $5000 then you'll be in a trouble.
    But why not fix the issue? You are still young and you may consider using PayPal one day.

    OK thank you so so so much!
    well, i don't really understand how i should fix it. i can't send them the documents that they want. i can't send them the adress i live in because it's not the same as in paypal and then send them my ID will show them that i'm not 18 right? :]
    it would be nice to have a paypal when i get older because paypal is used alot, so when i get older and i want to buy something internationall it will be a problem.... but yeah i have also since the begining of summer break decide to stop trying make money online 4 my mom and fokus on school. :D so now that you have said that i don't have to worry i can finally breath. THANK YOU
