UPDATE: PayPal have closed down my account as I didn't provide 'sufficient proof' that I am who I say I am. I provided a birth certificate, Passport, Bank statement and college ID's. So now I'm down £1,300! PayPal are a joke. I rung them up and went crazy, the guy said he will give me extra time to provide more proof, is he joking? What more proof can I show. So yeah, looks like I'm officially broke

Okay so this morning I made a few sales on eBay totaling up to over £1,000. I invested a large amount into this and around £400 is profit. I woke up happy as hell and went and shipped the items. When I returned home I recieved a call from a weird number something like "00 381 819 00" which is odd for the UK. I skeptically answered it to a woman telling me both of my accounts have been locked off and I cannot use them until this is resolved!

I have 2 paypals, 1 for ebay sales and 1 for personal use. Both of them have been froze and un-useable. 1 has a balance of £1,019 and the other has almost £300 in it! I told them due to previous issues that the bank account didn't belong to me and it was my Girlfriend's. They have basically right ok, well you might get your money and might not. This has more than pissed me off, I used all of my money to purchase the 2 items and re sell them.

Just beware of PayPal, I have had so many issues with them in the past!

Here's the snap I got of my balance before my account was locked:

Finger's crossed. Most likely not tho tbh, the person on the phone said that this is a strange case and she's unsure what will happen

Amazon did this same thing to me. I had 740$ on one of my accounts and they put it on hold for no reason.

I finally got in touch with an account specialist and they said that my account was disabled due to them not being able to verify one of my debit cards. The card that they couldn't "verify" was a prepaid card and amazon said I must fax them a copy of my billing statement with my email of the account attached to it. I obviously was not able to do this and I haven't been able to use the account since
