(Sorry, dear readers and friends, I wasn't able to put my mind on blogging lately. Been sorting out my problem about my limited access account on Paypal and tried to work out the matter)
Logged on to my Paypal one morning and got ready to transfer my funds to my bank account. In the midst of this - which I suspect caused the problem- I added my BDO bank account number so I could withdraw at least cost. I was just giving it a try this once. So, okay, it was approved then. But at the same time when I began the transaction, limited access account status came out. Thinking that it was temporary and that maybe they need to verify my new account first, I gave it another day.
(I'd like to share this with you my friends, if ever this happens to you, too. What is important, you must know all the facts.)
Email someone, locate their contact number and call them to report. Especially if you do not know the reason for the account limited access, you've got to know!
So here's what I did:
1.> I acted fast. I got my BDO account transactions and Unionbank EON account transactions ready. I made printscreen shots of each, with my name and account number - in case Paypal agents will need me to send it for proof.
2.> Quickly located the contact number of Paypal. Good that it's a US phone number which made it easier to call via Skype.
4.> Proceeded to call the number. Not that easy, but I gave it a try. Sometimes the phone is busy but altogether it just took me 3 minutes to get through. After the voice prompt I pressed the numbers of my home phone number for verification. I was able to get through again. Later the voice prompt asked for the Secure Web Pin, yes - again it accepted.
