Default Banned From Paypal for life

so a couple years back paypal banned me for life, how this happened was there was an adult related product that I was going to market and I asked the girl if I would be able to use paypal for the processing. She told me I should just submit it to see if it gets aproved, so I did then the next thing I know I am banned for life. Do you know of anything I could do to redeem this?

Sure, that is just like PayPal to be so helpful.

When we are at it, why don't wetell them there was a $1,000,000,000 error in the account and that once they set it up they should move that money back in.

They will help you for sure dude. ;-)

Hello Tom,
As advised before the best thing you can do is just start a company and make a new paypal in its name.
Or you can make a paypal in the name of a family member or friend WITH THEIR PERMISSION ofcourse.
Hope I helped you!
But you should definetly try out other payment proccessors such as Plimus,Moneybookers,LibertyReserve,CashU etc Much less hassle with those guys atleast in my experiance

Ok, I did set up another business once and used the same computer and my IP adress was linked back to me so that one again was banned. And to Tamer yeah they personally banned me because I "tried" getting approved for selling prepaid card. I never made a transaction.

Well change your ISP or ask your current ISP to give you a new IP. Shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes and it should be free or like 20$ at most.

So, unless you have a DEDICATED IP address (something you pay MORE for every month) or unless this happened in a VERY short time frame after you were banned then it wasn't the IP address that linked back and caused you to be banned again.

Most IP addresses will change with some regularity - you may keep the same one for a while, sometimes for quite a while, but in general, banning an account based solely upon IP would be a bad move. Because they are usually so dynamic, they would be blocking legit people that all just happened to be on Cable provider X, etc.

If you've given us all the information, they likely banned you the second time because you used the same email, same bank account, etc., not because of IP.

Before trying to change your IP, you might try Tor. Install and if you use Firefox, there's a tor plugin..

Have you asked to speak with a supervisor about reviewing your original ban?

That's the second time in this thread you mentioned "getting approved." I don't understand. How do you "get approved?"

You only contacted them "ONCE" every year? Why not contact them everyday, or every other day..

Have you tried contacting them by phone? Doesn't take as long as trying to get an email answered - and I find them to be more helpful this way.

And who was the girl that told you to just submit it? To get it approved?

I don't understand this?

Approve what? The selling of adult products?

Anybody advising the OP to purposely go against PayPal's TOS should be aware that such suggestions are frowned upon here.

Oh, and doing so amounts to fraud, though I am not sure how the law would apply.

The idea of legally creating a new business entity makes sense.

All the best,
Michael
