Default Confirm your U.S. taxpayer status

Hello guys
Today received a notification that I should confirm my taxpayer status.
Otherwise my account will be limited. I checked that I can receive money and withdraw it as usual. What will be the best solution in this situation? Is it worth worrying or not paying attention? Will this notice disappear at the beginning of the new year?

Thank you.

it wont go unless you send what they need normally they give certain time limit or amount after which your account will be limited so best is to take out the money now if you cant provide docs

How do you have a SSN? Using somebody's SSN fraudulently is a bad idea and will only cause you MUCH bigger problems with Paypal in the future.

Never understood why people from outside USA want to use USA accounts.

If so, what other suggestions? I don't want to provide them SSN, but for now this is the only solution that comes to mind. Maybe I'm wrong.

The legal way for you to move forward would be to either abandon that account until 2019 when your transaction count resets, or to apply for an ITIN on IRS.gov and provide that to Paypal in place of an SSN.

Giving a made-up or fraudulently obtained SSN is never the way forward. There have been users here in the past that did that and later had every transaction they ever processed reversed, leaving them with a negative balance of several thousand dollars.

Why did this happened if SSN belongs to the real owner of the account? I mean real SSN, not faке, not made-up.

You have a Ukraine flag so I'm assuming you don't have a SSN yourself, right?

If the SSN matches the person on the account but that person isn't you, you're still committing identity theft as per USA law.

You are asking for legal clarification and how to play with ⊗⊗⊗⊗ SSN...not in good interest of this forum.
