Paypal is asking me to submit a load of private documents to them so they can comply with some new EU anti money laundering scheme. Apart from such requests being in complete violation of my privacy I'm wondering if anyone else has run into similar trouble with them and somehow managed to deal with the situation?

They are asking for a photo ID with street address (haven't got one), a scan of a bill sent to me showing my street address (fuck off) and documentation of my business (don't run one). All I'm getting from gaypal is fucking automatic responses and no answers to my questions at all.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

You should call them - maybe it's a scam or something. It sounds really strange.

did it last year. I sent a fax with id and internet bill with no trouble at all. apparently there is a limit of money you can receive and if you don't do that you cannot be paid after that amount.

I got the same demands over a month ago. Haven't replied/provided anything to them, but every time I log into paypal, the first thing I see is page with the following message :"please visit our resolution center".

OK, thanks. You just included both documents on the same fax to verify that the street address corresponds to the ID? Or did you by any chance have your street addy written on your ID?

This is the situation I'm in as well. Apparently it doesn't affect using your account at all though. Kinda makes me want to keep ignoring it and see what happens...

Got the same thing last year. The bloody problem was that we had to choose 'which business we run', while we didn't run a business at all. I just sold some of my record and my dad some of his computer-stuff. Tried contacting paypal a dozen times but everywhere you get standardized useless replies. I don't know what we did in the end.

I think all I ever did to verify myself was adding a credit card number some years ago. They wanted me to do that because I came over that already mentioned amount. I cancelled the credit card shortly afterwards since I don´t need one and don´t want one.

I have had those troubles 3-4 times with Paypal, for different reasons all the time. There are 2 very possible reasons for this : You have transfered more than 1000 Euros or 1500 Euros (dependind on you account limit) so this is is really possible. 2nd reason, you have purchased/sent money over a limit within a month or 6 months. First of all, to define if it is a scammer or not, check the original message and read if there is anywhere you full name mentioned. If not, it may be a scam. If it is in the resolution center, check your paypal email account and see if there is any message related to this case. Or let me know by PM with details, I may be very helpful.

It's legit as the inquiries turn up in both the resolution center and my email. I've also already received email from paypal after my request for further information in the resolution center but nothing's been solved as of yet. And yes, you're right about the 1000€ limit, that's the one that I just hit. Just hoping they'll get an actual person on the case so I can get it over with, heh.

What happens if you just receive money from people as a gift, but it is actually a business transaction? There can't possibly be any law regarding how much money is received as a gift right? Or is this illegal?
