    Well if you have a premier or personal account. PayPal only shows your Email on donation page. I don't think that PayPal shows your personal information.

    I think the real question should be, why would you look to take money from people and be so concerned with hiding your identity?

    I wouldn't give you a plug-nickle.

      I was thinking the same, but I think we should give him/her the benefit of the doubt.

        Be my guest. It's that attitude which allows scammers to take advantage of people.

        I'm an old man. I know better. :-)

          You're ignorant is what you are.

          There are a lot of legitimate reasons why someone on the internet wouldn't want their name or address shown for accepting donations.

          A perfect example is people who run youtube or streaming channels for playing video games. They accept donations and thousands of people watch these people.

          The last thing these people want is their personal info getting leaked so internet trolls can do things like prank them by ordering pizzas to their house or even worse...

          There is nothing wrong with wanting to protect your identity online. It's up to the people sending the donation whether or not they want to donate to someone that hasn't said who they are or where they live and if that's a factor in them donating or not.

                  Hey Frank,

                  Always good to see you change flavor every couple of weeks. I also noted in your signature the VA shrink is doing her job very well.

                  Saw my VA shrink yesterday and she told me I should help a fellow Vet and share all my personal info and take the $15,100,000.00 responsibility off your shoulders.Thus enabling you to remain a jaded old man.


                  Sincerely,


                  Ken Leatherman

                    So well, that around a year ago she declared me as fit as a fiddle and ended 50 years of almost constant VA therapy. I was so happy, I went out and bought an assault rifle.

                    Saw my VA shrink yesterday and she told me I should help a fellow Vet and share all my personal info and take the $15,100,000.00 responsibility off your shoulders.Thus enabling you to remain a jaded old man.
                    It's well-known that I'll do anything for a fellow vet, so you go ahead and take this one. I've been blessed to receive similar offers in the past, so I'll wait for the next one. Shouldn't be long.

                    Cheers. - Frank

          I have no idea how OP could scam anyone when the donations are voluntary and Paypal is involved.

          I don't see anything mentioned in the OP that even remotely looks like a scam.

          Believe it or not some folks like their privacy which is a smart move IMO.

            In my world, trusting no one is a much smarter move. Color me jaded.

              Good day Frank,

              With warm heart I offer my friendship, and my greetings,and I hope this letter meets you in good time.

              It will be surprising for you to receive this proposal from me since you do not know me personally.

              However, I am sincerely seeking your confidence in this transaction,which I, propose with my free mind and as a person of integrity.

              A) It is practically impossible for me to carry out this business alone.

              B) You live in a foreign land far away from mine.

              This should normally not be a requirement, but when you understand the transaction then you will understand why it is important that you live far away from me.

              C) The amount of money involved in this transaction is Fifteen Million one hundred thousand united states dollars (US$15,100,000.00) which is too much for a man of modest means like myself to handle in my country.

              I believe from my few points above, you can begin to get an idea why I need your participation.I am writing you in respect of a foreign customer who has a Domicillary account in my bank.

              His name was Engineer Frank oliver. He was among those who died in a plane crash, Since the demise of this our customer, Engineer Frank oliver,who was an oil merchant and import/exporter, I have kept a close watch of the deposit records and accounts and since then nobody has come to claim the money in this a/c as next of kin to the late Engineer.

              He had only Fifteen Million one hundred thousand united states dollars(US$15,100,000.00) in his account and the account is coded.

              It is only an insider that could produce the code of the deposit particulars.

              As it stands now, there is nobody in that position to produce the needed information other than my very self considering my position in the bank.

              Based on the reason that nobody has come forward to claim the deposit as next of kin,I hereby ask for you to send an application to the bank as he next of kin to the deceased and get this fund transfered into your foreign bank a/c for mutual sharing between myself and you,%5 for charity, 5% for expences we will incure just in case, 35% for you and 55% for me.

              All I need is for you to follow my instructions closely because I am experienced in inheritance matters here and i am on ground here to advice you on every step until you receive the money.

              What is required of you is to send an application to the bank as next of kin to the late Engineer and I promise you that everything will go smoothly.

              I also indulge you not to make undo use of the information given to you, I need also to trust that you will not tell people or your bank about this business.

              You will collect the money first, then I get my share, then you can tell anybody what you chose thereafter.I shall need your help to invest in your country therefore, any experience you have in this area will be beneficial.

              Please feel free to call me on my direct telephone number for any question or further explanations if required and upon the receipt of your favourable responses I shall send to you a text of application which you shall send to the Bank putting claim over the deceased fund.

              Yours truly,

              Mr Thomos Dah

      Lucky I'm not asking you then!

      My successful content website is enjoyed by many, they should have the option to donate, but not the option to come round for a beer or for a chat.

      Hope that's reasonable and sufficiently conspiratorial for you.

        Right. Like they'll be knocking on your door with a sic-pack under their arm. lol

        You'll excuse me if I remain skeptical.

    Talk to a lawyer. Starting a LLC is a good option. Then the only information people will see is the LLCs, not your personal info. Whatever you do, though, make sure you follow Paypal's rules to the letter, or you risk losing your account.
