Default USA vs UK Paypal for Business

Bought from a seller a paypal account however I am not sure if I should go with:
UK or USA
I want to make the account business

so this is my question, with which one should I go?
and should I use personal only and upgrade later business
or I shouldn't open a business account at all?

So you bought an account that someone is made with someone else’s real details and you just trusting that they have the permission of the person whose real details have been used? I would personally run a mile....

I bought the account from someone who is doing this service since 2015-2016 and is on a big forum (bigger then this)
I am not really sure what he is doing or how all I know is that he is legit.

and also

If they have added an SSN then you really should ditch the account and move to a totally new one

luckily the account will be ready in Friday (he has many customers)
but 1 thing, my last USA stealth account got limited because of a False SSN and bad phone number, can it happen with UK accounts? because I can ask him to create me an UK account with ⊗⊗⊗⊗ identity, do they check it?
and if I get limited there, will a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ ID will work (from secondeye)

If you get limited anywhere within the first 30days, your account is toast.

I still don't know why would someone sell SSN's to be quite honest, that's like running on thin ice.

Unless you're a god of being anonymous I reckon you shouldn't use this PayPal account.

Selling ready accounts. Really? No, it isn't. Just open an account in your country cause that's the easiest.

not a very good idea to open an account in my country lol,
they usually limit fast here, I had an account from 2015 in my country with 100% real info (my personal info) with many payments (stuff that I bought) and and when I started to get payments I got limited without an option to verify

and I got an update from the seller I think that I'll miss understood him ,
will update once I got another answer

yea sure I got scared and realized how stupid I am from not realizing it, I contacted the seller and he told me that he is just checking if the real + last name is true and used by people in the area,
anyways my only question is about if I should have an UK or USA account,
the mod is the one who took it out of context

I didnt take it out of context... You said you were using real peoples information with their real SSN. I simply pointed out out to you that that was a very bad idea.
