Default PayPal Limited Account with Funds in it

My lad has a PayPal account he's only 13, he sold something for me as I was close to my selling limit on my eBay account. At the time I hadn't realised he needed to.be 18 to use PayPal, unknown to.me my.lad had put his DoB as 1972

So the item sold for 1500, and the buyer paid. My lad went to withdraw the transfer the money to me, or withdraw the money to his bank to transfer to.me. PayPal limited his account and I had to send in ID and Bank.account photos.

With my lad only being 13 he didn't have a Driving License, so I got creative with photoshop. PayPal PayPal the suspended the account and I have had to wait 180 days which expired on the 31st August.

We have gone to withdraw the funds again, PayPal has asked for photo ID and bank statement again. which I have sent off.

PayPal never got back to.me so I had to call them. I received an email from them saying that the driving license was not acceptable, can I send in a photo of passport. Not sure if they check the Driver License number as that was made up.

Not sure what's best to do, get creative again with Photoshop or just come clean to PayPal and say what I have done. The account was verified to.my lads bank account..

What do people suggest...

This type of things happens a lot, especially with the UK accounts. There have been many past posts on this forum about it.

PayPal is checking the ID and if the details don't match up with a real person, they will reject it.

There have been a number of reports that PayPal will keep holding the money past 180 days until you provide them with valid ID. PayPal knows your legal options are limited if you used phake details, anyway.

If I come clean and say that it was my 13yo old sons account what is likely to happen, will Paypal seize the funds...

According to PayPal's rules, a person must be at least 18 to open an account as it is illegal to enter into a contract unless you are an emancipated minor.

That would be basically admitting the ToS was broken and wouldn't change anything.

If the account was in the name of a real person, then you might have options such as contacting Trading Standards via Citizens Advice. Unfortunately the legal remedies are limited due to the account bring in your lads name.

bad idea to ask a kid to sell a $1500 item,worse idea to create ⊗⊗⊗⊗ documents like driver license,driver license is very easy to authenticate.
should have used an adult account.

If it's that easy to verify, then why are people still passing the EU 1700 verification with creative docs ?

I would have a go at fooling them with a creative passport. If that gets rejected come clean and tell them you messed up. But don't reveal your own identity if they want to know that as you might as well wave bye bye to your own account as well.

If that fails, then i'm afraid the 1500 is potentially gone.

there is a way,ask your customer to return the item and file chargeback with his cc issuer.
customer will get his money back,his account will be in negative $20 (USA chargeback fee) and he wil get his item back?
if his customer is willing to go along,I would not.
