Default Sending money to a friend

Hi,
I can't withdraw money from my PayPal account because of Paypal's issue with Prepaid Visa.
So I would like to send the money I have on my PayPal account [approximately 2000$] to a friend.
I had no problems with this PayPal account in the past.
When I asked PayPal about the issue with Visa cards, I also asked if I can send the money to a friend, they said yes and I should remember to mark it as "Services".
What do you think?
What should I do?
I can't link a bank account to Paypal cause I opened it with a false phone number [rookie mistake].

BTW,
this friend is not a seller, only a buyer.
When will he be able to withdraw the money?

Thank you!

No no no no NO/

That high amount will likely make both accounts get limited and maybe even forever.

OK,
Thank you!
SO what should I do?

Have you heard before of a similar issue Paypal had with a credit card?
How long did it take them to fix this issue?
Maybe its not an issue?
its a prepaid credit card.

You should not be able to send money anyway.

Please explain the situation.

It is not limited,
Paypal's having a problem with Visa card [that's what I've been told by Paypal].
I gotta have the money soon.
and as I said I can't add a bank account or anything cause the phone number is ⊗⊗⊗⊗.

If it's truly a "friend" (with a well established account) and not just you with another account I don't see an issue with sending small chunks at a time.. less then $500 spread out over maybe a couple weeks.

You have these choices:

.IL Paypal withdraw:
To your local bank account.
To your credit, debit, or prepaid card.
To your US bank account.
Via a check.

can you add a proper card that will work?

then you are going to have problems as soon as you try to transfer any funds.

paypal will put a soft limit on your account because of the phone number.

It is a real friend with real identity account,
I think I will spread it to small chunks as you said,
only as a last resort.
I will wait a while for the issue with Visa maybe will get fixed.
