Safeguarding your account.
Protecting your account and money is important to us. We constantly review all accounts to help ensure PayPal remains a safer place to transact. When an account is limited, you may not be able to send, receive or withdraw money. From time to time, limitations may be placed on accounts when unusual or suspicious activities are detected, to safeguard you from potential losses.
We’ll email you and ask you to log in to our Resolution Centre for details on how to resolve the issue quickly, usually by providing documents.
Once you’ve submitted the information required, we’ll review and reply via email.
We’ll lift the limitations once we have verified your account. At times, limitations can be lifted by simply changing your security questions and password.
What might cause a limitation?
Your account may have been limited for a number of reasons.
Unauthorised account use.
If we suspect someone could be using your account without your knowledge, we’ll limit the account and look into the detected fraudulent activity.
Unauthorised behaviour alert.
We’ll secure your account if your debit or credit card issuer alerts us that someone has used your card without your permission, preventing any further unauthorised fraudulent activity.
