Default Greendot moneypak now requiring social security number to add money to paypal?

Did I miss something, or is this new?

I finally got to using a paypal/ebay account that I bought on here, and went to get a moneypak. When I tried adding money to my paypal, I got their required form for a social security number. What to do now?

Not new, been like that for a while. Either sell to get money in the account or use a VCC or Gift Card and use that as a payment method.

Its always been that way.
It is not paypal that are requiring the SSN in this instance - it's Greendot.

does greendot share the SSN with paypal?

I didn't want to sell anything on the account until I had a few buys at least.

I dont believe the info is shared with paypal. But theres no way to know for sure.
You could call them directly and ask them that. Would be a good thing to know.
And as for Sandy - ill send you a PM with that story.

I can't even seem to find a phone number for moneypak anywhere. I don't think it exists....

What you can try doing as well is if you have any friends that have paypal just give them the money and have them transfer money using the "friend to friend" on paypal.....or sell a few things to get money in there

Why are you putting money in?

I've already given the OP 2 different ways to get money in the account for either purchase or paying fee's.....sometimes it's pointless to give advice.

It's not pointless, but I was trying to buy a few things on the account first before I started putting things up, so I didn't get flagged.

And I have $400 tied up in a moneypak, that I don't particularly care to have tied up. So can you really blame me for trying to find a way around it?
