Default PayPal is looking out for you

Hello everyone, when I try to login to my (stealth) paypal, I get the message "PayPal is looking out for you" since then it's been exactly a week of not logging in, and nothing has changed. I don't have access to that number, but I know for a fact it'll ask for ID after that as shown in the picture. I have access to the email, and some info of the account. I would like to know if I should wait a month or two, or just call them up and wish for the best? I can't find much about this online.

I've already given paypal a shout on twitter, and they advise to call them up.


Looking forward to everyone's advice, thanks!

Account is basically screwed if you cant add a new number and wait a couple weeks. OR call them up, give them a new number and pass data base questions. The PHONE NUMBER OF CREATION should ALWAYS be kept forever and ever and ever.

Any clue what they'll ask for so I can be prepared? Or should I just wait a couple weeks first?

The are going to ask public record data base questions most likely. If you cant get into the account at all and you cant answer the data base questions, the account is usually a goner.

Thanks. I've been able to retrieve the number (not access), address, and some public records. I will give it a shot and leave an update on what happens later.

Every time I hear or read "we are looking out for you" , "This is for your own safety", it really reminds me of how dictators talk just to screw you

"We are looking out for you" basically means the account is locked and verification of some sort will be required to unlock it.

If they don't allow you to confirm via your phone #, then you should be given the option of uploading ID, or you will need to answer those dreaded database questions as indicated above.

I just had my account restricted for unauthorized access although it happened because of something I did, I had a legitimate restriction where I could only log in if I uploaded my photo ID, and I think my social.

If you give a good enough story and are 100% confident in how you speak it can be lifted without doing any database questions etc.
