You gave a false address which amounts to deception.That’s quite an accusation to make and I don’t believe that it is strictly true either....that’s like saying you’re not allowed to have bank accounts in other countries. You definitely are allowed to have them if you meet the requirements for opening the accounts, but you are not allowed to hide the accounts. If you are using the account to receive money earned and hiding it to avoid paying taxes in the relevant countries you could get into a lot of trouble though.
If PayPal did not prevent me from creating an account because I meet the requirements and are happy with the verification I have provided to identify myself then that is that. My account is verified and legitimate. If anyone else tries to create an account and is unable to verify their identity according to PayPal’s requirements, PayPal may limit or close the account. PayPal can and will report any earnings on accounts, so if anyone has ideas about doing that, they had better not try it without having everything properly in order.
I am not using my account to receive any money at all and only use it to pay for things and there are no elements of money-laundering or tax avoidance involved. Using my Revolut card to fund purchases is the only complicated part of my account because some companies want my US address for the purchase and Revolut wants the numbers in the address to match up with the numbers they have for my home address in order to verify the transaction. If I really wanted to, I could reopen my US bank account next time I’m over, but that would be even more of a hassle than just paying with my Revolut card.
