Default PAYPAL asking for SS#, need to add funds

Hi,
I wanted to add some funds to my stealth PP account but as soon as I made the attempt they want me to verify.
Is there another way to do this?

Yes, sell stuff and collect the money into the Paypal. Are you trying to buy something?

Fund the account with VCC - verify the account with a bank account

I believe that requires an SSN from what I've seen.

Anytime you try to add funds to your paypal account by getting any of the many cards at different stores, or from a bank account, you need to enter your SS#

This way your money is always tracked to prevent Money Laundering or illegal funding to terrorist Groups , etc...

You don't need to add funds to use paypal to shop or pay someone. Just add a card or bank account and you're good to go. In fact, I don't see any point of adding money to my paypal account.

Agree with hodges - don't need to have your own money sitting in PP account

Default Re: PAYPAL asking for SS#, need to add funds

How about buying eBay gift cards and adding those on eBay while checking out?

Will this option also require him to input SSN? I don't think so. I have a 3 year old account that I run this way and it doesn't have EIN/SSN, it is however confirmed/verified with bank account and vcc

I thought everyone would know this by now, I was wrong.

If the bank account has mismatched names and you try to add funds to PayPal from the bank account they will see and immediately limit the account.
