    hi all

    so paypal have limited my account because they need my proof of address and photo id:thumbsdow

    not sure why they need this now, i have had an account there a long time

    they want me to fax or upload a picture of my driving license or passport and a proof of address like a bank statement i think

    how am i meant to do this? i do not have a fax machine and how am i meant to get a picture of my license and statement on my computer?:rotfl:

    are there any places i can go to?

    they accept them as emails as well

    you can get a scanner for £20-30

    its even possible to do it with a half decent camera phone

    if they can read it and it does not look distorted, i have done this before with other organisations

    you may have to position it under a decent light and hold the camera still and practise a bit.

    If they ever ask me for this I'll do them a sketch in MS Paint and send them that :D

    i agree, paypal are terrible, but unfortunately they hold a kind of monopoly over the internet if you understand what i am saying, kind of like microsoft does for software like windows and royal mail does for post

    someone suggested i should send them a rude picture of myself, but i do not think i will be doing that:rotfl:
