OK, I know I was dumb so please don't rub it in. Believe me I've kicked myself several times over the past week.
I just wanted to share this to warn others about what not to do.
Guilty! Yes I'm one who is guilty of saying (in the past of course) "You must have done something wrong to get your PayPal account shut down."
Technically I guess I did do something "wrong" however it was such an easy (at least for me) mistake to make.
You may recall I came in here a while back and reported a GREAT new service by GreenDot and PayPal.
You can buy a GreenDot Money pack and put it directly on your PayPal account.
My wife asked me to put some money on her PayPal account so she could do some shopping, so I in my brilliance went to the store and bought a money pack to give her.
Being less of a techie than I am she asked If I would help her add it. I did and out of habit I put my SS on the info rather than hers.
The rest is history. PayPal account shut down with a few bucks in it. No appeal to reopen, it's gone for good.
She received a very nice email from a "name" at PayPal inviting her to Open Another account and please realize that "We don't allow Joint Accounts."
Well, there is my first paypal horror story.
Be careful out there.
