    First make sure that it is a 'real' email from Paypal.

    And then what does Paypal want from you?

    Your funds are stuck there if your Sending Limits are down to $0.00 and you haven't verified your account.

    If you don't have a credit card, maybe you could buy a pre-paid one and use that. That would work, I guess...

    You shouldn't have 3 PayPal accounts in the first place. Have you read their Terms of Service?

    You can have 1 Personal Account + 1 Premier or Business Account at most. You cannot have 3 accounts according to the TOS.

    Go get a credit card from a local international bank and use that to verify your accounts. I believe you need one credit card per paypal account because they did not let me verify my accounts with just one card. Make sure that it is not a debit card.

    To get a Virtual Credit Card just to verify your paypal account may work but it goes against the main reasons for verification in the first place. The purpose is not to penalize you but to verify that you are who you say you are. Maybe you can write to Paypal and ask them for an alternative means of verification which may include sending them your utility bills with your name and address on it and also a government-issued photo id.

    To fax, you can sign up for the http://www.Maxemail.com free trial which allows you to send out 3 virtual fax for free. Alternatively, see if they accept email attachments so you can scan and send them the necessary details.

    PayPal sucks, They will most likely hold your funds for 180 days before allowing you to withdrawl, to make sure nobody claims that they did not receive the goods or services you gave them for their payment. They don't care about you or your business. 1000+ more people will sign up for paypal tomorrow which will more than make up for the fees they could be charging you. They just don't give a ****. Good Luck.

    Really? They've never done that to me. Now why do you think they would be doing that to you?

    They did even worse to me! I had two accounts and transferred money from one to the other. They classed this as 'suspicious' activity and limited my account. It's been like that now for over two years and has over $200 in it, I now have a different verified account.. But i really should try and get that one sorted..

    I wouldn't do anything and just leave it as it is unless your not able to send payments.


    One of my credit cards expired and I didn't add a card to my paypal for about a year, and it worked fine, only until I wanted to buy something from a vendor which requires a credit card on file (godaddy).

    So then I added the card.

    The reason was 3 accounts :
    I own 2 accounts ( I asked paypal about it and was written in TOS also) - 1 premiere and 1 personal.

    Now just follow their steps.

    people think getting a credit card is easy....far from it you either need a bank account in the country you live in or you must apply for one in another country by actually visiting that country, opening a bank account via mail is almost impossible these days

    Yes, I never said that getting a credit card is easy. You will need to go through various verification and credit checks before your application is approved.

    So basically, what it means is that you need to be a person of some credit standing and verified to be a true person to get a credit card. Also they can check that you are from the country you claim you are from.

    Since Paypal cannot see you face to face, using your credit card to verify you would allow them to only accept people with can proof they are who they say they are and not of credit risk.

    Paypal just want to weed out fraud and credit risks so that to protect its customers and themselves.

    I mean if you go buy a virtual credit card to verify your account, it make work but it would have go against the purpose of verification in the first place.

    I mean getting a virtual credit card is is like going into a club with a fake ID. The thing is that clubs rely on your photo ID to determine if you are old enough to enter because the one who issue you the ID (usually the government) does the checks for you and the club bouncer relies on the ID to determine your status. If they all let you in with fake IDs, you may still be admitted but it goes against the purpose of the checks in the first place.

    You need to know the purpose of why some things are done and not to just follow the moment to comply on face value.
