    Well this might not sound good but you've lost your money most probably. I think you might get your money after a period of 6 months. Not sure, try calling them and telling the truth.

    You really can't restore your account without doing that. The only way out is to get someone adult in your house to make an account and use his/her account just as i use my dad's account for i'm only 13.

    Understand that if you doctor any documents, it would be deemed as cheating and you may not be treated nicely.

    Lying about your age would already be a breach of your contract with them, do not dig a bigger hole for yourself. Just consider the $30 lost and treat it as a lesson learnt for lying about your age.

    No, you cannot change your name unless you have done so legally in the courts. If you have the legal paperwork to indicate your name change, you can do so.

    Talk to Paypal and tell them that you are underage and that you are sorry for what you have done and see where they go from there. Do the right thing and redeem whatever reputation you have left.

    Paypal will most likely hold the funds for a period of 6 months, and after that all funds will be released to you.

    If they find out that its a duplicate account, they probably will limit it at first and if you fail to give the documents one again, your IP might get banned.

    Just be honest about it.

    Get your mum to fax her passport and a utility bill, along with YOUR passport to prove you are indeed underage. In the notes section of the fax page, get your mum to write something like the following:

    "My son is underage, and therefore cannot provide a utility bill and whatnot. I, as his legal guardian, am now faxing my passport copy and a utility bill under my name because I meet PayPal's minimum age requirement and I am responsible for paying the bills.

    Rest assured, the account will be closed as soon as the limit is taken off, and I will be making sure my son only signs up to PayPal when he is 18."



    And THEN you can get your mum to open her own account, and you won't need to worry about a thing, right?

    Good idea, but to be honest i don't think they would accept that. What about if i open a new bank account, link that up, but use my mums name? Do they check the details from your bank account?
