Default Paypal Called!

Strange one, don't know if Paypal were just sussing me out.

Now got 3 stealth accounts going with account 1 now selling my risky VERO products. All accounts are in no way linked.

Sold a few last week and on Saturday night my mobile rings, new mobile and number so PP didnt know of it. Some guy from Paypal, sounded like called over net from abroad, american accent, calls to congratulate me on my first sales and asks me if im ok with the workings of Paypal and if there are any problems...

Was tempted to say yeah there is a problem, the 500 on my other account you lot are holding to ransom for 6-months...

Strange thing for PP to do or is this normal now?

Only thing is the other fledgling stealth accounts have pre-pay sim cards just used to bet the pin number to set the accounts up. What happens if PP cal them and get no reply/

In my experience if they try calling and they do not get an answer it usually results in a limitation.

I cannot stress the importantance of having a working phone number.

Means you need a mobile phone permanently running for each account then!

Nooo....

It means you need a working phone number for each account.

I carry 1 iPhone around with me. All my accounts that are currently running divert to my phone.

They call you also for an invoice request if you have a lot of activity on a new account sometimes. I got a call some months back and was limited right after the call... the guy said that he would send me an email with what to send him. It was just the standad "Your account has been limited until we here from you" crap.

Virtual phone number services like Soho66 will help you have as many numbers as you like without needing to carry that many mobile phones.

Sorry for sounding stupid but how is this achieved, automatically transferring your calls to one number.

I'm based in UK if i want to do this.

I dont want the hard work i have done of getting 3 stealth accounts up and running to fall down just because i have pay-as-you-go sim cards who have been registered to open the account not monitored.

I got 4 tesco mobile sim cards to use on 2 of the accounts, and simply used them to get ebay to send the activation pin to them, that's all. It was pure chance i answered the call on Saturday, i normally dont to numbers i dont know.

I have never been suspended for omitting to answer the phone and to date have hardly had a call from pp.

I was once temporarily suspended for having an dead number, I re-verified another number and was ok.

OP or anyone, has anyone had a paypal call made from a mobile format number? cos I had a few missed calls on a line that is registered for eb/pp and wondered who it was.....

if you use google voice i would highly suggest changing the automated answering message. it says 'you have reached a google voice subscriber'. i do not think they will like this. hearing a 'regular' message will look better
