Default Paypal asking for Valid ID -Funds release question

Hi guys ive got a question

basically the 180 day limit is coming up on my account in the next week or so. i phoned to see if i could get it released early(usually works), however the women on the phone was very rude! she implied the id isn't genuine etc and said the funds won't be released even when the 180 days are up as they need valid id.

My question is, is this correct? surely the funds are mine and they cannot keep the funds just because they like? is the women on the phone just being awkward and rude or will i need to submit more id's? the id's look fine to me and are a drivers license and gass utility bill.

How do i get my funds released guys the release date is coming up in around a week or so!

They are scums, they've been known to steal whenever they feel like it..

Best to wait the 180 day period and then give a call again. But it wont surprise me if you do whatever they tell you, and they don't release the funds. There have been cases reported on the forums of such situations.

if they still dont release the funds would it be worthwile getting some more id? its over 300 so would like to get it out as it isn't change

what about threatening legal action if they dont release the funds would that work.

the women on the phone had a right attitude too so really want to get one over on her, could tell she had great satisfaction in saying ''your id isn't accepted'', and ''You know why'' and ''it hasn't passed government checks'', please stop lying women!

I've not experienced this, so perhaps someone else can assist you here.

But from my understanding, it may not just be what you submit that's being denied, but if you happen to be selling high risk items, that could also play a part in their *decision making process*. I know that is certainly the case with Amazon UK. I wouldn't be surprised if PayPal use the same tactic.

Think ill wait till the release date and see if it releases the funds if not ill phone up on the release date.

on the resolve issue page it says ''we are parting company, after 180 days we will email you to release your funds''. that states on their page that they will release the funds so they must have to abide by that.

This is a behaviour that paypal introduce recently, before i never hit by docs request after 180 days to get funds released. But now i have 2 accounts where i have to give docs.

Notice that from an account, i can get 20 euros at each time ( so they can take 1 EUR each withdrawal i make ), but on the phone they request documents.

The truth is that technical parts is totally not wired to headquarter decision.

They are the first scammers in the world, remember this.

I slammed them on Twitter last year with this, I never got the funds released after 180 days. They sent it to some 'special' team, who also never got back to me. I messaged again a week later and they did it there and then for me, and released my full funds. I'd never even given ID on that account.

One of my accounts has passed 180 days and they will not give back the funds unless ID is provided. Its a few hundred too. Ive just had to leave it. Ive taken them to court on non stealth accounts successfully but I dont think youd be able to do a small claims in a stealth account ... having said that, they never go to court they just release the funds... but youd have an address issue - Im not sure how youd get the paperwork ...

No, they do not abide by that.

Why? Because the feckers have in their general T&C they can do what they want even if that eventually involves holding your funds.

This started with the UK in Late October about 3 years ago. Many have had funds retained.

When the account was first limited what exactly did you do. Could I trouble you to tell me all the steps you did,please.

nothing mate, i rided the 180 days out. then i phoned a month before and asked for the funds to be released and they said send in identification, no problem, so i sent in the passport and utility bill, i phoned back and the women said the id's have been rejected. then she started acting cheeky saying the id's are not genuine and ''you know whats wrong with them etc'' just being rude without proof. so i goes ill submit my drivers license then and utility bill and she goes ''no it won't be accepted, and you know why'' before ive even sent it in?

so ive left it until the release date to see if the funds are going to get released automatically, paypal are theiving rats.

any help/tips on what to do guys.

Same boat mate. I've taken to Twitter now but heard nothing from the 'special team' and they're ignoring my tweets. As I said I did a small court claim a couple of time on non stealth and funds were released. Not sure if doing it on a stealth would be wise. I wouldn't mind some advice on that myself. They never do go to court mind, it just gets released!
