Default Suddenly required to "Verify Identity" using phone number with every new account?!

Hello everyone,

I've had no problem making stealth accounts in the past. I typically use my accounts for non eBay purposes (selling through my own digital eCommerce Stores, etc.), however recently that all changed.

As of about a week ago, everytime I make a new account, it creates fine, but when I receive my first payment I get the following e-mail:

Quote:
An important message about your PayPal balance

Hello ##############,

Congratulations on your first sale with PayPal. Since you are a new seller with us, we'd like to give you important information about how your payments are processed.

Payments you receive from buyers are now in your pending balance and temporarily unavailable.

If you do nothing, this money will automatically be moved to your available balance and released to you in 21 days (as long as there are no problems with your orders).

Why?
Because you are a new seller with us, we want to confirm the information on your account. This helps protect buyers and sellers in the PayPal community.

Want to get your money faster?
To remove the 21-day delay and get your current payments released faster, confirm your identity. If you don't confirm your identity, you can get your money within 7-14 days. Log in to PayPal and click See how to get your money faster at the top of the page.

Questions?
For more information about Funds availability details, log in to your PayPal account. Or to speak with a Customer Service representative, click “Contact Us” at the bottom of any page.

Thanks,

PayPal
Now, when I login, at the top right I have a notice to click to release this hold. When I do so, I have to "confirm my identity" by having an automated system call my phone number. However, because I'm using Google Voice and/or Text +, it tells me instead that the number cannot be confirmed and I have to attach a SSN in order to verify my identity.

What can I do? This seems to happen with every new stealth account I make.

Create accounts with a tracfone or other prepaid cell.

I've read on here that this 'verification' process requires a landline to 'Confirm Identity' -- will a Tracfone work? It's not a landline.

Agreed, costs a little bit of money to create a more legitimate looking account, but its worth it in the long run
