Today I decided to do my ID and address check with paypal,... and they immediately proceeded to limit my account on the basis that I had received over 1900£ in the calendar year. I called for a further explanation and they said that my passport copy was hard to read, but weren't able to say what was impossible to read.
They then said "we'll give you another chance, please send out another copy of your passport". Which I did... and now my account is closed with no further explanation. Amazing how messed up this paypal business is!
I called and asked what it meant that my account was closed and the lady says "you will not be able to use paypal again": that's the best thing that's happened to me today, knowing that I will never deal with these idiots again!
