Hi all,
I have a PayPal account with a budget of >$100. I were browsing with a proxy and suddenly logged into my PayPal with that proxy, and my account got limited after that!
So if it's now limited, It requires to be resolved by linking a Credit Card or a US Bank Account. I don't have access to any of them! So is there any way to get my money out of it?

You may have to send it to a trusted friend who can withdraw it for you. If you're desperate for time, you can use it possibly to buy gold from a gold dealer like Apmex or JM Bullion and then turn it into cash from there fairly easily.

Unfortunately PayPal's Nazi practices will require you to eventually handle it according to their terms.

So call them. I happen to know that they strongly discourage their customer service staff to escalate issues beyond "tier 1" after going through this same issue with them over and over again, even just recently. They are a straight up mafia and I urge you to turn to something better like Bitcoin.

Anyway, use their tier 1 discouragements to your advantage and demand a supervisor. Threaten them with a lawsuit - they lost many before and demand access to your money. Don't try to reason with these people as they will flag your account for fraud for no reason. Can you tell I understand yet? Lol.

Alternatively you may be able to beat their system by buying a prepaid PayPal card, register that card, and transfer money to it.

I would just give them a call and explain to them what has happened. They actually like it when you call them as it shows you're not someone that doesn't want to speak to them in person on the phone as a lot of scammers are like this. I find that I get matters resolved much quicker with Paypal when I call them but I've had my Paypal account since they day they first begun and they know me by name now.

Just give them a call and explain to them what has happened. Be upfront and honest with them.

I don't get why your account was limited for logging in with a proxy. Unless the IP is on a range they know to be that scammers use. Just tell them that you was using the proxy for something and logged into your paypal with it as you forgot to stop using it. But they may wonder why you was using a proxy in the first place that's why you'd have to tell them what it was you was using it for.

Be honest, be upfront, be ready to answer any questions truthfully. These sorts of things can happen from time to time especially with newer Paypal accounts. Overtime, the more you use your account, the longer you've had it, the less these things will happen and your account wont get limited to quickly and easily.

Can you really blame them? Would seem like suspicious activity on their end.

And you can't blame them for wanting proof of identity. What bank can you walk into and get a bank account with out providing identification?

Not sticking up for them. I just don't see how their practices to protect their business and their customer accounts as Nazi practices. We would all do the same.

What about a debt card? That's what I've always used to hook up to my account. You say you live in South Dakota, USA. Plenty of banks you can get an account with $25 and get a debt card.

Far i know being an PayPal old customer, is that you have to add a personal bank account or business bank account.. in other way you can not withdraw the money because the law in USD and Canada to, is that government have the legal rights and access on pay pal accounts to can track your transactions , is about taxes and laundry money to can not done ......

Logically,You should first inform Admin at Paypal of your situation and get first hand reply from them,It is better to know where to proceed from or simply forgetting the account and opening another or supplying them with all your identity details.

Paypal can make you stressed. My account was recently limited and they did not reply my emails. The worse thing is that they allowed me to receive money that I couldn't withdraw, I received from my friend for personal use yet they want every details about the transactions made.

When I registered to paypal my account it was also limited. Its too late for me to realized that I created Business account instead of Personal account. I can only received money but I can't send money. You have to verified your account by adding bank account or debit or credit card. It has it's own terms and condition so you have to follow what paypal requires to you.

Accessing your Paypal account with proxy raises suspicion, I advise you not to do that in the future. But I understand you need a solution now. What you do is to transfer to a trusted person who can help you translate it to usable cash
