Default important message from Paypal

I am running couple of new PayPal these months, one of them received a message today:

Dear XXX,

Congratulations on your first sale with PayPal! Since you’re a new seller with us, we'd like to give you important information about how your payments are processed.

Right now, all payments you receive are placed in your pending balance for 21 days before they can be spent or withdrawn. However, if you help confirm your identity you can get immediate access to the first $1000.00 USD you make every month. As long as there are no other issues, the rest of the money is then released after 21 days.



Help confirm my identity now


Why?

We want sellers of all sizes to succeed. We’ve found that we can reduce the number of potentially negative buyer experiences and increase confidence in a seller by delaying the release of money into the seller’s available balance.

More information can be found on the PayPal Help Center by searching for “release amount.”

If you have questions, click Help Center at the bottom of this email and then choose Email us or Call us.

Sincerely,

PayPal


After I click "confirm identity", it brings me to the page with the questions you need to answer, have no idea how they collect them as it's a stealth account. So I closed that page.

Did anyone have this situation before? How you follow up usually?

Does it not normally require you to enter your SSN for that in the US?

If so its not possible for a stealth account

I could well be wrong! I am used to only dealing with UK accounts.

My understanding is that it would need to have your SSN added which means its a no go on stealth accounts.

Others based in the US may be able to correct me though!

Happened to me before.
If you try to answer them and fail nothing happens.
May as well try because if you DO pass the first $1000 in sales per month will be instantly available with no 21 day hold.
I actually have a few accounts like that.

If they ask you for some SSN or Driving License ID, just google search 'bla bla generator'. I usually do it like that and it works.

This is a personal account, like you mentioned in your other thread? Only reason I'm asking is because I've only ever seen "release amounts" on new business accounts. I think it's cool they're giving you that opportunity on a personal account, if that's the case here.

The one thing that sucks about "release amounts" versus traditional new-account payment holds is uploading tracking doesn't effect the hold time. All payments are held for a full 21 days once you surpass your release amount. :(

you can sometimes get your funds released on an account with a "release amount" by sending a secure message to customer service. Ive had my off eBay transaction released from a PayPal Business account by marking them as shipped in 7 days they were released with no issue

Nothing will happen if you fail. You can just let the message be there and after one month, mine is gone.
