So, my PayPal account was limited back in March because I was under 18. Sure, that's fine, it's clearly outlined in their TOS. So, I turned 18 on December 29, 2006, and faxed them the required documentation.
I just got this email:
"While reviewing your PayPal account, we have discovered that you do not meet the minimum age requirement of age 18. As a result, full access to this account has been denied. This decision may not be appealed."
Did I read this right? My driver's license said I turned 18 last Friday, but they say I don't meet the minimum age requirement...
On the phone with them now to see how they calculate age heh
The supervisor thought the same thing I did -- why would they say I'm not 18 when I am?
Because you weren't. You lied to them , and then you expect them to turn around and just accept you back? Naaah, that's not how things work.
Paypal is a very high risk business. They're (wisely) not going to accept business from an individual who's previously lied to them in the past. That's just risky, and not smart business practice at all.

1. Eligibility. In order to use the Service, you must register for a Personal, Premier, or Business account. Users may only hold one Personal account and either one Premier or one Business account. Our Services are only available to individuals or businesses that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our Service is not available to minors (under 18), persons who are suspended from our Service, or to persons who present an unacceptable level of credit risk.
While I'm glad the issue got resolved for you, the point is that you shouldn't have been re-activated. Not because of paypal, but because of yourself. You present a risk to that which paypal has to answer to it's customers for.

I would never do business again with anyone that lied to me... it is amazing how people this day and age thing there is nothing wrong with lying and everyone should just trust them after been caught at lying.
