Default Re: Confirm your U.S. taxpayer status

I just want to make clear that this "confirm request" is a NEW kind.

I also got this message recently- on an account with under 40 sales and under $2,000 worth of transactions. Even continuing at the rate I was, there was no way I'd cross the 200/20K limits.

This is *NOT* an annual 200/$20,000-type limit... this is something new, and I got it on a rock solid low risk top performing account. I only saw/got it once and recently.

You cannot RECEIVE funds into the account, but you can send and withdraw and pay things with no problems, even from an available balance. (a nice variation from the normal limits). But they keep reminding you that you need to add a SS# or confirm U.S. taxpayer status or there will be "more limitations" coming.

If you haven't gotten this specific thing yourself, you probably don't know what he has... mine was random out of the blue, which was disappointing, but from the little I know about "creative" solutions I just withdrew and consider it toast.

I think a lot of people (as would I) are assuming this is an annual-limit type limitation, and it's not. I am 99% sure it's a new kind of thing, and triggered by what I really can't tell. Nothing was late/problematic on my accounts, it's all on the PP side, and maybe it's the beginning of a roll out of a blanket requirement across all PP users to confirm their U.S. taxpayer status... I'm not sure.
