Default sign over paypal check to cash

I have a bank account with a limit on how much I can withdraw into it. Like an idiot I lost access to my original phone number so I cant add a new bank account. Back in the day when i was living at home I used to sign over my pay checks to my dad and he would cash them. Is it possible to request a check from paypal in my stealth name and sign it over to my real name and cash that. Has anyone ever tried that. Is it even legal. Will paypal see my real info as I am putting check into a account with my real info.

Just deposit the check into the Bank account that you used on this account to withdrawal funds

I'm guessing you have a Bank that accepts deposits in mismatched names, it should also work for depositing checks

Also if your bank has a smartphone App that allows you to snap the front and back of the check and deposits it automatically, that way you can avoid a teller

Thanks for the advise dmshark! My paypal bank account is online only with no physical branch (bluebird). I have a few personal bank accounts, is this common practice if a bank accepts deposits in mismatched names will deposit a mismatched check into you account? I know this is different but I thought you couldn't cash a check in someone else's name as what would stop someone from stealing a check and cashing that. Thanks for the help!

Checks deposited are usually processed by machines. They don't always check the back of the check to verify signatures and what not. And if they accept deposits in mismatched names, then it should not matter what the name on the check is.

HOWEVER: Your ACCOUNT NUMBER and BANK NAME will be printed on the paper check, and PayPal COULD see that if they wanted to.

Just wondering - did you actually try to add another bank account? It's true, some people reported getting the "device not recognized error" when trying to add a "real" bank (like BoA, Chase, Citi etc), but the vast majority of the time that happens with common VBA banks like Ally/GMAC and CapitalOne360. Personally I've never had that error message when adding a real bank, only with those above mentioned VBA ones.

I have deposited a check with a mismatched name once (to Bank of America), but it was a small amount and that was the only time I ever did it. It was successful.

Depositing a check and direct deposit is the same concept, they are both deposits, and by using a smartphone app to deposit the check it will be automated like your direct deposit

If your bank accepts deposits in mismatched names than it should be ok

The key is to have a Bank Account that accepts mismatched deposits. Because whether the mismatched deposit came as a direct deposit or from a deposited check, they are both mismatched names

You could bring the argument that you hacked into someone's PayPal and added your bank and made a withdrawal, which is the same as taking someone's check and depositing it into your bank

They are both deposits in mismatched names

So make sure you have the correct bank account that will accept them

And there is a difference between depositing and cashing the check, you want to deposit the check , do not try and cash it

This is not real hard, Get the check, open a real bank acct, deposit the check, wait for it to clear and spend the money?

And why don't you have access to the phone number?
