I opened a new Paypal account, attached a checking account, gave Paypal a credit card and got verified. Then I sold nearly $800 on eBay for a friend. I asked for just under $600 to be transferred to my checking account. I got a confirmation that Paypal would do the transfer. When I tried to pay for postage to ship the items via Paypal, I was told that there is a limitation on my account. However, if I followed several easy steps including resetting my password, changing my security questions and answers, proving my home address and such, the limitation would be lifted. I completed all steps except for address verification. This requires a form that Paypal said they were sending in the mail. I shipped the items I sold. Afterwards, I got an email from Paypal saying that my account is suddenly closed due to security risks. I am not allowed access to the money in the Paypal account. In six months or so, they will send me an email and email me instructions on how to receive the funds that belong to my friend. Now what? Paypal deceived me badly and basically stole that money.
