Paypal Credit Balance Unable to Withdraw - The I.D. thing...
6 replies 141 views
Hello, I have tried numerous searches to find the information I need, but after 2 hours of looking, I've decided to raise it as a new thread.
Currently I have a credit balance on my Paypal account which I am unable to withdraw. Paypal reqested a variety of forms of I.D.I have provided them with bank statement, government letter, birth certificate. Based on my research, this should be enough to lift the restriction on my cleared funds. I appear to be getting the hard turnback as I do not have any photo I.D. I don't drive, or, go abroad for medical reasons, therefore have no driving license or passport.
Today I submitted a Subject Access Request to Paypal for my personal data, how they obtained it, and, how they use it, based on some advice found online. I'm waiting to see the result of this, but not holding my breath. It would appear Paypal are imposing U.S. Federal Laws on U.K. Paypal accounts. I know, that's not legal in the U.K.
Have any forum members experienced this hurdle, and found a solution?
