Paypal Smokes Some Funny Stuff

     I read all your posted reasons why your account might be 'frozen' HA, but how about having a common name? I opened an account on Paypal to pay for a service. I only wanted to use a credit card. It appears Paypal does not have the ability to check the validity of a credit card as do other online merchants. For me to ever use Paypal again, I must send them a photograph of myself and my SS#.

     Those people in California do smoke some funny stuff, as I could not use a valid passport for identification. So I have paid for my one use of this farce of a merchant pay system. I will never purchase any product or service that uses Paypal ever. It seems their procedures hurt the business person trying to make a living. Oh yeah I don't purchase from E-Bay either.
