Solved A Problem With Paypal Limited Access Account

Photobucket

(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.


But yes, I really needed to withdraw my funds that I couldn't wait (as I just spent a huge portion of my savings to pay my Globe broadband fee!) So I proceeded to withdraw thru my Unionbank EON instead... and oops! it was also put on limited access account.

What do you do when this happens? In my case... I rushed on to sort out the problem and ran a search on Google for "help problems with limited access account" and "paypal limited access account." Frankly speaking, not much comfort there haha! To make it worse I was even shocked and surprised reading the so-called Paypal reports and feedback from other account holders. The best advice I got was from Hongkiat to whom I owe thanks for the ever-reliable advice. Thanks still for the info because I was able to decide not to write Paypal but to call them instead.

(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.

3.> Took note of the Paypal customer service message as follows:

Contact Us
For faster customer service, please have the following information ready.
* Primary home telephone number: (the number you registered in your Paypal account)
* Secure Web PIN: (Mine was: 505###) This is only valid for 60 minutes
* Primary email address: (Your Paypal email address)

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.

5.> Speak to the Paypal call center agent. State your problem clearly. He/she will ask for some data from you to verify your ownership of the account. Just try to communicate despite the so-called "language barrier". Don't be afraid to ask what caused the problem so you can trace your recent transactions. Always remember to be courteous to the call center agent and don't forget to thank him/her too.

6.> After the call - Important: Take note of the recommendations of the call center agent and act on them immediately.

I hope these steps will help you too!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Music Monday - First Cut Is The Deepest


I would have given you all of my heart
but there's someone who's torn it apart
and she's taking almost all that I've got
but if you want, I'll try to love again
baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
cause I'm sure gonna give you a try
and if you want, I'll try to love again
but baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

'Cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

It's A Saturday and I'm feeling Blog Stress

Yep, you read in right! Too early for me to get blog burnout and I may be exaggerating a lot. I got nothing to post although I've got a few blog posts on my drafts folder.

For the meantime, I'll just do something fun on BlogThings and see if the result would honestly describe me. (Try answering too and let me know your result)





You Are Intelligent



You are dignified, spiritual, and wise.

Always unsatisfied, you constantly try to better yourself.

You are also a seeker of knowledge and often buried in books.

You tend to be philosophical, looking for the big picture in life.

You dream of inner peace for yourself, your friends, and the world.

A good friend, you always give of yourself first.




Awesome result, especially about that seeker of knowledge! Blogthings moderators must be reading this blog, hehe :)

It describes me exactly, those are most of my obvious points in life if I would describe myself. I just do not have the exact words so I let the personality tests do it. I believe in their accuracy, as I learned from my psychology course long ago. To call me dignified is a huge compliment, that's what I can say!

Leave a comment, let me know your result ^^ Have fun this Saturday!

The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...
It's a cloudy day with a little bit of sunshine. A perfect day to do some gardening.

I am thankful...
for my health improving, losing weight and getting better. I am also thankful for my children's schooling are okay and my eldest working this week at an internet cafe in another town.

I am wearing... corduroy over-alls, white long-sleeve shirt and a straw hat. I was out in the garden this morning.

I am remembering...
the date yesterday July 20th which rang-a-bell to me. A day of departure for London 7 years ago. June and July's seem to be my favorites to fly somewhere, what a coincidence.

I am going...
to the Parents-Teachers Association meeting this 1PM at our 3 boys' high school. Today will be the turn over of all files, notes, circulars and funds from former PTA officers to us newly-elected officers.

I am reading...
A Complete Guide to SEO which I have on my list for quite a time now. I am really putting my mind into the topic right now as I realized I've been a blogger for two years and still don't know what it's all about! Because when I read from a website, I just get the "zzz's" and nod off. I feel like I'm learning Algebra for the first time :)

On my mind...
ah! too much brain activity. Y'know, like the buzz you get from reviewing all night and taking an exam the next day then knowing afterwards that you made it... I am thinking of projects to do, which I cannot disclose for the moment. Just to give you a hint, it's about the 80's and high school reunions.

Pondering these words...
My belief is greater than your doubt. And I mean it. I posted it as a shout out on my personal facebook profile that I believe in healing, particularly for my ailing father-in-law who has COPD. I said believe you are healed, see yourself healthy, pray and claim perfect health. It may not be easy, but you've got to try.

From the kitchen....
My hubby, the official cook around here, will be cooking pinikpikan - the famous dish of the Igorot culture. I will just be holding the chicken's wings :)

I am hearing
my 4-year-old singing along to Yo Gabba Gabba on tv

I am listening to
Charice Pempengco's rendition of "I Will Always Love You" on YouTube

Around the house...
Clean up to do, colored pens and paper on the floor from my young boy's artwork

One of my favorite things...
Rainbow on my garden and butterflies around my one-and-only calamansi tree of 5 years. I'm amazed that plenty of butterflies visit and in so many colors!

A picture to share...

Yes, I'm definitely playing MM now :) To share my feel-good songs that I listen to!

The story behind this, nothing in particular. But this song makes me feel good, a comfort during my uh-oh times in London in 2003. I love the melody and the lyrics. It's what I call "bourgeoisie", ha ha. The song makes me look back with bittersweet memory but in fact I feel happy listening to it!

July 16, 1990 and Earthquake Disaster Preparedness

I wasn't in the Philippines when this happened in 1990. But I've watched news updates then on CNN and a few weeks later my aunt received a video tape from Rotarians of Pangasinan of the destruction in Dagupan. So when I came back to the Philippines I was no longer surprised at what I saw. But going to Baguio was a different story, I was so sad for those people who lost their lives, families, houses.

Last year, July 16, I was searching for pictures and stories from the archives. I found the video below from Youtube courtesy of
melroi202



Since these things are inevitable and may occur due to global warming, I'd like to contribute some info I found in my web search.

How to be Prepared


Electricity, water, gas and telephones may not be working after an earthquake. The police and fire departments are likely to be tied up. You should be prepared to fend for yourself for at least three days, preferably for a week.



You'll need food and water (a gallon a day per person); a first aid kit; flashlights; a portable radio; extra batteries, blankets, clothes, shoes and money (ATMs may not work); medication; an adjustable or pipe wrench to turn off gas or water, if necessary; and an alternate cooking source ( camp stove).


It's also a good idea to decide beforehand how and where your family will reunite if separated during a quake and to conduct in-home practice drills. You might choose an out-of-the-area friend or relative that family members can call to check on you.


Securing water heaters, major appliances and tall, heavy furniture to prevent them from toppling are prudent steps. So, too, are storing hazardous or flammable liquids, heavy objects and breakables on low shelves or in secure cabinets.


During an Earthquake


If you're indoors, stay there. Get under -- and hold onto --a desk or table, or stand against an interior wall. Stay clear of exterior walls, glass, heavy furniture, fireplaces and appliances. The kitchen is a particularly dangerous spot. If you're in an office building, stay away from windows and outside walls and do not use the elevator.

If you're outside, get into the open. Stay clear of buildings, power lines or anything else that could fall on you.
If you're driving, move the car out of traffic and stop. Avoid parking under or on bridges or overpasses. Try to get clear of trees, light posts, signs and power lines. When you resume driving, watch out for road hazards.
If you're in a mountainous area, beware of the potential for landslides. Likewise, if you're near the ocean, be aware that tsunamis are associated with large earthquakes. Get to high ground.
If you're in a crowded public place, avoid panicking and do not rush for the exit. Stay low and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms.

After an Earthquake


*Check for fire or fire hazards. If you smell gas, shut off the main gas valve. If there's evidence of damage to electrical wiring, shut off the power at the control box.
*If the phone is working, only use it in case of emergency. Likewise, avoid driving if possible to keep the streets clear for emergency vehicles.
*Be aware that items may fall out of cupboards or closets when the door is opened, and also that chimneys can be weakened and fall with a touch. Check for cracks and damage to the roof and foundation of your home.
*Listen to the radio for important information and instructions. Remember that aftershocks, sometimes large enough to cause damage in their own right, generally follow large quakes.
*If you leave home, leave a message telling friends and family your location.

---------------------------
What to do during an earthquake (From

Alaska Seagrant)

1. If you are indoors, duck or drop down to the floor. Take cover under a sturdy desk, table or other furniture. Hold on to it and be prepared to move with it. Hold the position until the ground stops shaking and it is safe to move. Stay clear of windows, fireplaces, woodstoves, and heavy furniture or appliances that may fall over. Stay inside to avoid being injured by falling glass or building parts. If you are in a crowded area, take cover where you are. Stay calm and encourage others to do likewise.

2. If you are outside, get into the open, away from buildings and power lines.
3. If you are driving, stop if it is safe, but stay inside your car. Stay away from bridges, overpasses and tunnels. Move your car as far out of the normal traffic pattern as possible. If possible, avoid stopping under trees, light posts, power lines, or signs.
4. If you are in a mountainous area, or near unstable slopes or cliffs, be alert for falling rock and other debris that could be loosened by the earthquake.
5. If you are at the beach, move quickly to higher ground.

The Hundred Islands.... a great summer getaway

This mini-vacation I had recently in Hundred Islands of Alaminos Pangasinan is what I'd really like to share! It is a wonderful summer getaway and not only limited for the summer since the Philippines is still experiencing a dry season at the moment. This time is the best time to go! The place is so breath-taking, I promise!

I've gone to this place many times before, last was during the early nineties. It was still not so developed back then. More to that 90's story, we went as a big group of families,friends and classmates.We stayed overnight, not knowing the possible dangers as told to us by the boatmen. My brother-in-law and cousin sighted a "white lady" too! (honest) So much has happened that 2-day trip, if I remember right it was around my birthday Dec 20-22,1992. But it was a wonderful trip with so much adventure stories to talk about for years!

So imagine my excitement to see the place again, with a small group this time, with my cousins,my cousin's friends and my hubby! Thanks to my cousin's ADHD, we went there unexpectedly ^^,

I'm sharing a few of the pictures I took on our recent "impromptu" trip.

Familiar scene? Yes, that's where they shot the movie, "Dyesebel".

Below, is your usual first stop, Governor's Island with the viewpoint deck above. Get ready to climb the 123-step uphill!

Below, a picture for my Flickr entry

Below, taken at Marcos Island (Take nothing, leave nothing) In the picture is my hubby (if you can find him), who went the trek uphill.

That's what I personally call The Secret Island. Well, it used to be during the 90's. One of the three stops back then. Now it's just an option to stop by. It's a clean place and well-maintained.

Photobucket



Below is the Bat Island, and it was my first time to know this part of the Hundred Islands existed. The bats were sleeping upside down and humming a strange, creepy sound which reminded me of the vampire movies like "Twilight"! What's more, the bats were humongous than what we normally would see in our town. Their size may be approximately as big as a regular cat! Whoa!

Photobucket



I thank my balikbayan- cousin for taking us here. Thanks to the fun stories again and the barrel of laughs. I'd say this trip is a great remembrance!
