Default WOW! paypal need my ss# NOW..

"Our system found unusual activity associated with your PayPal and eBay accounts that present a potential high risk" And need my SS # now. Do I have a choice? I can't send out payment ot request for money now. What should I do at this point w/o giving out my social? I don't trust anyone with it.

Great, now how am I going to make my eBay payments now?

If you can't or won't provide it...

Then you just have to move on to a New Ebay and PayPal account.

If you have a great number of feedback on the account then I say seek Modee's tech support as he can over come the SSN requirement. If the account is not worth it to you then I suggest start all over again.

I never give them my social when they ask for it. It isn't hard to get around.

I called paypal today stating what happens if I didn't have a SSN. I know a lot of people don't have SSN. Some people here in the states are here with a student visa like some of my friends. They said that I would need to fax in proof that I am in the US. I asked them if passport would do. They said the passport doesn't show that I'm in the US. So they told me either I could send in student visa or green card.

It would probably be easier to do a student visa since a greencard likely has a number they can look up. So if sometime sends a greencard in, paypal can use their human resource people to verify if the greencard is legit through the same system where if paypal hired an employee with a greencard.

For a student visa, you'd have to make sure you might want to plan it out beforehand with a foreign sounding name instead of trying to convince them that you came from Canada, the UK, or Australia. For instance, you can use a middle eastern sounding name and then send them some evidence of a student visa. Also find the nearest flight school and tell them you're going to school there.

I am being asked for my ss# and do not want to give it. My account is limmited to I can accept and withdraw payments from my ebay sales but cannot send money on paypal or request money until I give a ss# ? This is not my fist run in with ebay/paypal but have no reason for them to do this one. I am a powerseller with 500+ feedback, can I use my husbands paypal account for my ebay or will it cause him problems. M I bought your Ebay Stealth Book last Apr. Any new advice? Can I use a tax id instead or my daughters ss# she is young, but don't feal right about that either. I used my SS# years ago with paypal and can't use it now. Any advice would be appreciated!
